One outrageous legacy of the Bush presidency is his habit of routinely executing “signing statements” attached to legislation that he “approves”, signaling his intention to dispute, ignore or otherwise hold in contempt laws and regulations that have passed through Congress. The latest example is W’s signing statement undermining Congress’s ban on permanent bases in Iraq. Well, what’s good enough for W is good enough for John Q. Public, I say! Thus, I propose a “Citizen’s Signing Statement Initiative“, whereby the rest of us can refuse to comply with legislation and regulation that we find inconvenient, irksome or expensive. I’m thinking, say, income taxes, speed limits, elections “won” by Republican candidates, whatever. Let’s follow the Decider’s lead in showing utter contempt for the laws of the land! Kindly send suggested Citizen’s Signing Statement Initiative targets to Rantcaster.
