Attorney Generalissimo Ashcroft
"My freedom is your servitude."
John Ashcroft doesn't believe in the Bill of Rights.
He doesn't believe U.S. citizens have a right to
a fair trial. Ask Jose Padilla:
As an "enemy combatant," Padilla can be held indefinitely by the military.
John Ashcroft sucks
He has greatly curtailed civil liberties. But he's white and
has money, so it doesn't greatly affect him.
In 2001, Ashcroft decided to drop the government's litigation against
Microsoft, which took years and cost millions of dollars. (Has
he ever used a computer?) The cooperation of Microsoft
with the National Security Agency is a possible motive: Ashcroft
pursues surveillance, secrecy, and unlimited power.
Ashcroft is a good-old-boy
and a staunch conservative, just like Dubya. But he wasn't popular
when he was a Senator. He couldn't even beat a dead man in the Missouri senate race
that preceded his nomination as Attorney General!
