This is

Constitution Day
Yep, that's right. The documenat that lays out the blueprint for how American Democracy should be practiced.

Read articles I and IV very carefully, and ask yourself how we are doing . And then read Articles of the Constitution, especially Article VI, that makes things like the Geneva Conventions and the Vienna Convention (in particular article 36 on consular notification) "the rule of the land."

And ask yourself, is Bush's position on torture and detention within the scope of the US Constitution and its obligations under these conventions? Is Bush's interest in broad powers of surveillance acceptable under the Constitution and is his anger as the Legislative (ie the Congress) even reasonable since they are part and parcel of the three branches as laid out in the Constitution.
