Don’t Cry For Me Ike and Tina…

The War On Guns has a link to a news story in AlertNet. (Reuters)
Argentina recently passed an anti-terrorist measure which sounds like a version of what the U.S. government is already doing here surreptitiously.
In part… 
~BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) – Argentina enacted a law on Wednesday providing a wide definition of terrorism that critics fear will allow the state to jail people for up to 15 years for activities as diverse as marching in protests or pulling money out of banks.(emphasis Guffaw)
The law, approved by Congress last week, seeks to punish anyone who “terrorizes” the population, leaving the definition of the term open.~ 
From the nation that defined Latin-American fascism.  Already in a U.S. neighborhood near you.
When did we ever aspire to be like them, anyway?

  1. I don't recall if it's that article or another that I read which opined that the courts would most likely declare the law unconstitutional because of that undefined "terrorist" designation. Apparently, their judges still know how to read.I wish ours did.

  3. Well, it's not like we're trying to stop capital from fleeing overseas in order to raise taxes on it at home, just like the Peronistas did, causing the economy there to collapse.Oh, wait. http://www.spiegel.de/international/business/0,1518,803742,00.html
