No bill of attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.

Ex Post Facto (“After the Fact”). The Constitution of the United States of America states explicitly right in the very first Article, Article I:

No bill of attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.

No “After the Fact” law shall be passed. Now, maybe I’m not as well versed in constitutional law as others are, but the Congress of the United States just passed a law that gives retroactive immunity to lawbreakers. Will this madness only end in January when George W. Bush is finally out of power? Should we also purge idiots like Steny Hoyer and Senator Rockefeller from their positions of power to stop this utter corruption? Our Congress and our Executive Branch no longer believe in the Constitution of the United States. They certainly don’t follow its hallowed principles. It is a worthless document to them. Shame upon our generation for allowing this!

  1. Where have you been? Democrats have violated ex post facto for years. Bill Clinton’s tax increase was retroactive. It was so bad that estates that had been settled and closed had to be reopened.

  2. In 2006, Your Good Mr. George Bush, did pass the Adam Walsh Act, then, he gave the Attorney General the power to make that law Ex Post Facto.

    In my simple minded reading of the Constitution of the United States, and Every State Constitution, I find the all say explicitly, No One shall pas any bill of Attainder or Ex Post Facto Law.

    Call me simple Minded, but if the Constitution says No One can pass an ex post facto law, How are these governement agencies, including the office of President and Attorney Genearal, getting away with passing these laws?
    I will answer that for you.
    Americans are sheeple. No longer are we People. We are sheeple. We have NO voice in Governmetn or the Justice System.
    Do you know, if you do not have 30 to 50 thousand dollars, you can forget about fighting for your civil rights in America?

  3. Hey!.. and here ya go… your query is, as of today, answering itself. PrezBO is now behind post taxing money that was granted in a previously agreed to contract….

    AFTER…his Treasury secretary reviewed the whole thing and agreed to, or well he didn’t and then again a day later..he said he did!!

    Nice job…when the lowest common denominator in society manages to get the highest voter turn out…
