Ah! The favorite Obama's argument: "We don't have time - do it _now_!"
Meshes great with Nancy Pelosy's line "Pass this bill and _then_ we'll learn what is in it".
I already lived under regime that did not want these niceties - trial by jury, inalienable rights, and also was always in a harry. It very quickly murdered some 60 millions of its citizens, some starved to death, some executed in the basements of Lubjanka. My grandfather spent 10 years in the Siberian camp, then 30 years in "no closer than 100 km to major cities". His guilt? None. I have government document stating that.
