Take 5

And let your Congress people know what you think about

the people in the Justice Department (read Alberto Gonzalez and the FBI) thinking an apology is enough of a consequence for admittedly breaking the law. The Attorney General's Chief of Staff has resigned in the light of this scandal.

the move of military contract giant Haliburton moving to Dubai. Do we want to continue pouring hundreds of billions of tax dollars into this company that wants to set up shop in the country that couldn't catch Pakistan smuggling nuclear technology to North Korea? Wouldn't it be a good time to start defunding Haliburton and bring our troops home?

the army sending wounded troops back to Iraq. About the poor care for troops that are wounded even beyond the walls of Walter Reed. About the troops being sent into an escalation without training. White House talking head Tony Snow said, and it's right there on the White House web site, that they can receive their training in Iraq. About troops being sent without the proper equipment, STILL. About the military being stretched so thin even former commanders are saying it is unsustainable. About the lowering of entrance standards to meet recruitment goals. This is apparently the conservative idea of supporting the troops.

pardoning Scooter Libby. First read a transcript of the proceedings. David Corn followed the trial pretty thoroughly, and covered it in his blog.

sabre rattling with Iran. Wouldn't this be a good time to change the authorization to use force?

Granted, this may all take more than 5 minutes. But even a cursory reading of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution makes one realize that what we have at the helm in our country is no defender, protector, or preserver of the Constitution of the United States.

I called mine, and will do so again.
