Bahhh, The US will be one of the first nations using the court to go against anyone who is against the """interest of big US busines"""
Can you say an eye for an eye?

What has that got to do with Washington and the United Sta... oh, I see, you're only talking about the citizens of the United States of America, aren't you? How quaint, how insular.
You've only got 5% of the population, so what's your problem? What happened to the will of the majority? Or do you think the application of laws should be decided by the military or economic power of the subject? It'd be great for us to be able to try that Mad Dog Hussein in absentia, because he's just a foreigner. But surely even the rudest USA citizen shouldn't have to answer to those commie/arab savages, yes?
Still with me? So you agree that there should - in principle, not just in practice - be different laws for the priveleged and the impoverised within the USA?
Or does that only apply on a world level? I'm confused.
And, most importantly of all what made you think this has any relevance to Y2K?
Please please please delete this thread!

Your wasting your comments lecturing the poster above you. That poster obviously lacks basic reasoning skills and cannot begin to see how this 'arrangement' could affect his/her rights. The U.S. Constitution is dead, partly because of the ignorance of posters such as the one who posted above you.
