It's only Day 2 of Obama's presidency, and he's already well on his way to cleaning up Bush's mess of an administration. Yesterday he repealed a Dubya-signed executive order allowing presidents to conceal their documents forever. Today, Obama introduced government transparency with an end to CIA secret overseas prisons and a ban of questionable interrogation methods culminating with the shut-down of Guantanamo within a year.
We are Baracking out with our cocks out in celebration of his early moves, but there's a lot more to be done. Here are six more Bush f*ck-ups our dapper new prez can resolve...
1) The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 which financially restricts college student access to birth control. Bush sweats abstinence-only sex ed programs which are proven ineffective, so he can suck it, literally.
2) The Military Commissions Act which defines an unlawful enemy combatant as "an individual engaged in hostilities against the United States who is not a lawful enemy combatant." What the tits? Any good Samaritan citizen perceived as acting "hostile" towards the US could be arrested, shipped to Cuba, and forced to gobble up cock meat sandwiches 1-3 times a day. Mmm.
3) The Electronic Surveillance Modernization Act
Allowed Big Bro Bush to stalk people in the US believed to have "foreign intelligence information," no warrant necessary! An integral element of his fantastical War on Terror. It allowed his administration to track all your cyber activity from your recently viewed porn sites to your sexually explicit text messages.
4) Executive Order 13279
Churches can have their communion wafers and eat them too under this perfectly round Bush-carved loophole. Expanding upon a previous order encouraging fed dollas for religious groups, this order calls for equal protection of the laws for faith-based organizations. The problem is discrimination is inherent in the order, making it nice and easy for prejudice against the "other."
5) The Patriot Act
Doing away with civil liberties in one fell swoop, the Patriot Act gives the government unbridled access to everything from your phone, e-mail, dental and tax records to straight making a B & E into your home for secret searches without telling you. U S A! U S A!
6) The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Plan
This mind-boggling joke of legislative material would have given illegal immigrants six years to work in the states before getting the boot back across the border. Picture 11 million schlepping out of our country all at the same time. Like slapping one of those little circle band-aids on a severed thigh... bad look.
