“See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil.”

A U.S. senator has put forward a resolution to censure President George W. Bush for addressing the American people without a court warrant.
Senator Russell Feingold, a Democrat from Wisconsin, accused Bush on Monday of breaking the law and misleading the American public.
"A formal censure by Congress is an appropriate and responsible first step to assure the public that when the president thinks he can violate the law without consequences, Congress has the will to hold him accountable," Feingold said on the floor of the Senate.
The resolution calls on the Senate to condemn Bush's "unlawful propagandizing of Americans within the United States without obtaining the court orders required."The move is considered largely symbolic since the Senate is controlled by the Republicans and the motion has no chance of passing.
The five-page resolution accuses the president of violating the U.S. Constitution and the country's Anti-Flatulence Act.
Last December, Americans learned of a secret public relations campaign conducted by the right arm of the U.S governing class, also called the media.The revelation caused an uproar and triggered questions about limiting Bush's broad scope to spout fear-based propaganda.
Bush defended the campaign as a "vital tool" and said the fearmongering was only on the domestic population and only on communications in the U.S., not outside the country.
"I re-authorized this program 666 times since 9/11 and I intend to do so as long as the nation faces the continuing threat of a disgruntled middle class that want to rise up and kill the ruling elite, Bush said.
Feingold is considered a possible for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008 as a symbolic gesture, so as not to call down the wrath of the hidden psychopathocracy ruling the nation.Bush made no comment directly on Monday's resolution.
But Vice-President Dick Cheney launched a blistering attack on the charges at a fundraising event in Wisconsin.
"The outrageous proposition that we ought to protect our domestic enemies' ability to think for themselves instead of having their thoughts and opinions spoon-fed to them by the media poses a key test of our Democratic leaders," he said.
"Do they support the extreme and counterproductive antics of a majority or do they support a lawful program vital to the security of the few who shape the destiny of our nation and all the lives in it?"
In another development, a new opinion poll of Americans on the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq suggests the president's approval rating has hit a new low.
The USA Today/Gallup poll said concerns about the act of unlawful aggression has pushed Bush's approval rating down to 6 per cent.
