Expand the Blackwater resolution (0.00 / 0)
If I could suggest expanding the Blackwater resolution to include Dyncorp - particularly it's anti-coca/poppy contracts in Latin America and Afghanistan. They've also been pushing to replace Border Patrol Agents along the TX border with private mercenaries, as well as pushing for a role in the $1.4 billion Bush giveaway to Mexico for anti-drug war measures. That gets a lot closer to home here in TX, even, than the Blackwater scandals in Iraq. See:


I'm not a fan of the one on "hate speech". What "spreads hate" is subjective, and there are already laws forbidding speech that "calls for acts of violence."

My two cents.
