Because now President Obama is apparently coming for me, and others who oppose US involvement in Yemen:
President Obama plans to issue an executive order Wednesday giving the Treasury Department authority
The unusual order, which administration officials said also, is the first issued for Yemen that does not directly relate to counterterrorism.You could reasonably argue, I guess, that my own little posts on Yemen are so inconsequential that nobody could possibly want to freeze my assets (unless some Treasury Department agent really wants a cheap pizza, which is about what they would buy), but you'd be wrong.
The Obama administration has prosecuted people for speaking out against the so-called "War on Terror," has suggested that people could rceive the death sentence without trials, has executed American citizens abroad without notice or due process, and has asked for the power to detain American citizens indefinitely.
So let's be clear: I oppose US involvement in Yemen. I believe that US intervention and imposition of one-party rule in Yemen (ala Guatemala in the 1950s) is a disaster, and that "Yemen's security" is a euphemism for a foreign policy based on militarism and intimidation.
If anything I write is capable of threatening Yemen's security or stability, my $11.62 is waiting.
Why is it that anybody wants to re-elect this man?
Because he pretended to give you health care while he was removing your civil rights?
