A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the...

Bush makes no apologies for spying on the American public. In fact, he seemed downright insulted in his press conference the other day when questioned about his awesome, god-like, dictatorial powers. Let's not forget that it was God who selected him to be president.

Now, of course the right-wing media is going to tell you that what Bush did was perfectly alright and that the only people he was spying on were suspected terrorists communicating with known terrorist organizations.

So, if I write an email to al-Qaeda politely requesting that they stop terrorizing people, will my email be intercepted by the NSA? You better believe it. And if I subsequently send an email to my cousin in Ireland wherein I criticize the current administration for their lack of integrity, will that email be read? Definitely possible. You see, that's the problem. Where is the line drawn? Does a limitation even exist? No one should be given that much un-checked power.

Right, Jesus?

"You da man, PT !"

When we get to the point where we willingly give up our civil liberties and rights to privacy, then the terrorists have not only won, they have conquered us. Are we really willing to spend the rest of our days spying on each other and cowering in fear of what MIGHT happen? I certainly hope not.

And whatever happened to the right-wing wanting a less intrusive government? It's time that we ALL started protecting our rights no matter what side of the political fence we sit on. You can do your part here.

If you're REALLY fired up, as well you should be, you can express your outrage by pissing into the wind here.
