The intention in WACO was NOT to burn the children alive despite your deceptive description. That fire accidentally happened because the lunatic freak David Koresh put them in a bad position. I think officials acted prematurely, but I wasn't on the ground or hearing the first hand reports and neither were you. Plus, the dumbshits fired on federal agents which you, apparently, are okay with?
As far as the Cuban kid (Elian?), he was separated from his father and you guys wanted to make the decision for his father what to do with the child. That folds right into the authoritarian/budding fascist mindset that the Republican State Knows Best. Kind of like in the Schiavo case. (Both cases being in Florida, but this ain't the "Is Florida crazy or what?" thread).
So, stack up those lame ass examples against a President basically rewriting the Constituion to write Congress out, the budding fascists demanding the jailing of reporters and editors for reporting news the Admin had previously bragged about, people being abducted off thge streets and whisked away to secret prisons, torture, lies to start a war, politicization of a war, rampant Banana Republican corruption....
Ya ain't got jack.
