And we've not been vigilant... and it is occuring... and will continue as long as we let pretenders such as King George rule us.

    Abuse of power isn't limited to bad guys in other nations. It even happens in our own country by governmental (non)representative do-gooders.

    To abuse is human.

    Whether King George or Herr Klinton, when the government and its laws are perverted, tyranny reigns. Nothing short of revolution will correct the generations of apathy and ignorance that have allowed the devolution of the Republic.

    The quote is so general as to be meaningless. Everyone can agree with it, but I'll wager my list of abuses is a lot different from Eastwood's. Without context I can only rate it as so much feel good drivel.

    George W. Bush Jr, Clinton, and the current Bush's father spring to mind; how they let that go. Israelies seem to ignore their political theocrats and wrong doings with Lebanon easily as well, while claiming to chase down some fanatical nomads who could be anywhere in Arabia, maybe in Israel now, it would be the safest place for them actually.

    That's good to know Mr Eastwood, from a fellow who's, no doubt, well acquainted with the business of projection. I guess you won't be observing my presence, if I observe yours first.
