Spying On......Whoever they damned well please

My computer has been down briefly. Yes I did nearly loose my mind. Now I am on again. Nothing changed I see.
More proof Bush is the Fuhrer and all the right can say is he's just pertectin us from the terists. What part of "this is what you fear the terists doin in the first place" don't you understand!!!!!!!!!

Give up your freakin rights if you want to, just understand that some of us don't want too!
How in the hell do they get away with this! I don't care what the President says. He hasn't proved himself anywhere close to worthy of my trust. His plan, whatever it is,(proof we have lost control of our government right there) seems to have lead to an increase and not a decrease in terrorism and the threat world wide and from overseas.
Spying on Americans and lack of progress in the war on terror. Time for a new plan. When will people admit that he is totally incompentent and down right dangerous when it comes to the war on terra.

Russ Feingold says:

This Administration’s arrogance and abuse of power should concern all Americans. That the government may be secretly collecting, and using data mining to analyze, the phone records of millions of law-abiding Americans, as reported in the press today, is a frightening prospect. I am unaware of this program, and Congress needs to find out exactly what the Administration is doing and whether it is legal. It is time for the Administration to come clean with Congress and the American people. We can effectively fight terrorism and protect privacy, the rule of law, and separation of powers, but only if we have a President who believes in these principles.

Is This A Joke?!

When I saw the possible choice for CIA director at the begining of the weekend I said.."Oh no, you've got to be kidding me!" I waited to say anything until he was actually nominated because I didn't believe he would possibly try this.
Our President has nominated a man who was in charge of the NSA illegal wiretap (terrorism surveillance) program. Before you say their is no proof that he's doing anything wrong let me inform you there is no proof that he is not abusing his power either. He just won't tell anybody enough details to verify anything. Any American who would allow this in my book has totally forgotten our principals.
So lets make this secret, illegal program guy the top spy for the whole country, whadda ya say.
Holy Fuhrer! Plus the guy that will have to tread very carefully on the 4th amendment if he wants to do things in a Constitutional way doesn't even know what it says!!! As noted here.
I looked to see what Senator Feingold might have to say.

I am concerned about the President's nomination of General Michael Hayden to be the Director of the CIA. General Hayden directed and subsequently defended the President's illegal wiretapping program and he was complicit in the decision not to inform the congressional intelligence committees about this program, as is required by law. It is unfortunate that the President made such a contentious choice at a time when the intelligence community, and this country, need consensus on how to move forward. General Hayden will need to convince me that he is committed to the rule of law in order to win my support.

I'm not suprised to see that the Senator and I see things in the same spirit. It seems to happen a lot.

Some say "I don't mind, go ahead because I'm not doing anything wrong. "
If you don't need your rights go ahead and give them up. I plan on doing everything I can to keep mine. Just might need them someday.

No Comment Needed

I can't think of anything more, no comment needed than this. Please do so though.

Oh, by the way, check this out. Turns out the BBC also has an article about the same Bild am Sonntag story. Here is more of what the president of the United States said to the German press:
In a more serious moment, he said he understood German opposition to the war in Iraq."The Germans today simply don't like war... And I can understand that."There is a generation of people whose lives were thrown into complete disarray by a horrible war." It's sad, isn't it? I count at least two reasons weep your eyes out after reading this.First of all, who knew? The Germans today simply don't like war. Unlike we Americans, who still really, really dig war. That poor, traumatized country. They have no idea all the good times they're missing. But more importantly, we have a president who actually said to a German newspaper, "The Germans today simply don't like war..." That's why everyone I know who travels abroad makes a point of telling the people they meet within twenty seconds that they didn't vote for George W. Bush, ever. I'm far from ashamed to be an American, but I'm thoroughly ashamed that this malicious moron is the leader of my country.
