    Jerry,
    Don't worry about what these couch potatoes have to say. It isn't that they are stupid, it's just that they know so much that just ain't so. You just keep on doing what you're doing and stay safe.

    Yes I do, just looking for a big AMEN!

    That's my pup, I call him Chevalier. It's French for knight since his reg. name is The Dark Knight II. Best Batman movie ever.

    He's by FC AFC Shaq and out of a MH dam by FC AFC Star II.

    That pick was when he was 4 months old he just turned 5 months!
    He just finished teething. Taught him hold a month a ago and I can walk him on lead with him holding a soft knobby plastic bumper. He great with sit, I place him on a four inch high platform and he'll sit for 3 minutes, just watching me at 20 feet away. I've been doing some push/pull on the platform getting him to heel around to the left and right. Also, doing simple casting including backs off the platform. He is going to Mark Smith when he turns 5.5 months old. He's already been CC'd on "here" and "sit", I did that while he was teething.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    This is how torture is defined. The whole excerpt can be found here:http://www.amnestyusa.org/war-on-ter....do?id=1107981

    What is torture?

    Torture cannot be defined by a list of prohibited practices. Human rights treaties define it in a number of different ways, reflecting the different contexts in which they were drafted and the purposes of each particular treaty.

    The Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1984 and entered into force on June 26, 1987.

    It defines torture as any act by which:

    severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental; is intentionally inflicted on a person; for such purposes as:

    * obtaining from him/her or a third person information or a confession
    * punishing him/her for an act s/he or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed
    * intimidating or coercing him/her or a third person
    * or for any reason based on discrimination of any kind;

    when such pain or suffering is inflicted by or at the instigation of or with the consent or acquiescence of a public official or other person acting in an official capacity.*

    Every act of torture is a crime under international law.

    * If torture is committed in an armed conflict, it constitutes the war crime of torture.
    * If torture is committed as part of a systematic or a widespread pattern of similar acts, it constitutes the crime against humanity of torture.
    * The Convention against Torture prohibits torture as an independent crime, as a war crime, and as a crime against humanity, absolutely and in all circumstances.
    * The Geneva Conventions prohibit the war crime of torture in both international wars and internal conflicts such as civil wars or rebellions.
    * The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court prohibits torture when it constitutes genocide, a crime against humanity or a war crime.

    Are there exceptions to the prohibition against torture?

    No. Article 2(2) of the Convention states that: "No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture."

    The prohibition of torture has a special status in international law. It is part of customary international law, which means it is binding on all states, whether or not they have ratified any of the international human rights treaties.

    The prohibition on torture is also a ''peremptory norm,'' which means that it cannot be overruled by any other law or by local custom.

    The United States ratified the Convention against Torture in October 1994. The Convention entered into force for the United States on November 20, 1994.

    Good post. In case it's not obvious, ratification of a treaty requires submission by the President -- in this case Clinton -- and ratification by a 2/3 vote majority of the Senate. A ratified treaty has the full effect of law in the United States.

This is NOT like the waterboarding that the Japanese did during WWII - with salt water, filling up the stomach and then jumping up and down on it. And putting a catapillar in the cell with a terrorist frightened of insects and sleep deprivation seems pretty mild to me.

    "especially the high priests Cheney and Rove"
    What does Obama know? Who will his high priests be? Let's not forget even Palin had more experience then he did.

    Very nice. Enjoy the ride
