NSA - Wiretaps - And why we should care...

HHHHmmmm.... The NSA is conducting wiretaps.... even more than we were led to believe.... but it's okay boys and girls your civil rights are well protected. Look I've got them here in my back pocket. Right between my wallet and my ASS!

Well in all fairness it's not like we actually do much with our rights.... we don't vote, but we go to war so other countries can. We don't really want freedom of religion unless it's our religion because those heathen (insert hated other religion here) are all going to hell.

Has anyone actually read the constitution or doesn't it count anymore? It's pretty good reading actually. It's got this cool preamble, articles, amendments, Bill of Rights (those are the pesky things President Bush is allowing the NSA to trample on) and it was written by some pretty impressive dead guys. Another good one to check out is the Declaration of Independence... pretty cool intro on that one too.

So why should we care? We could drag out the old tired, "for those who died to protect them", or "innocent until proven guilty", or a long list of cliche arguments, but the real reason... you could be next. No... really!

Hey... no really...

Not being sure why I do most things and being a reluctant typist on a good day, I'm really not sure why I decided to try this. I think most people who do this are under the false impression that people who read these really are interested in what they have to say.... no... really.

Anyway it seems like a nice semi-public forum in which to weigh in on some things that might interest me, annoy you, or I may want to use to annoy others.

Here's an example... hey America... WAKE UP!

Was that annoying????

Have any of you seen the interesting polls showing Bush's slide into presidential obscurity? When the combination of people who think he is useless on a variety of levels is all tallied up... who are these other 13% who still think he's great? Is this always the same 13%? Anyway... if you're one of those who have ignored their own eyes, ears, and intellect please feel free to say why he's great. A mind is a terrible thing..... to open!
