Double Standard

Published by cck at 8:46 PM

I was (illegally) reading the NYT last week and found this great example... "Imagine being stopped for speeding and having the local legislature raise the limit so you won't have to pay the fine." What, you're thinking, what does that have to do with anything? It's what's happening to the law that prohibits the president from spying on us without getting a warrant from a judge.

I haven't really wanted to think about wiretapping, instead I have been content to bury my head in the sand and hope and pray that our president wakes up and realizes that it is a BAD idea.

Quote from the editorial, Kabuki Congress - "There is not a shred of proof that the illegal program produced information that could not have been obtained legally, had the administration wanted to bother to stay within the law."

There's a lot more to it than this - but this is going to be something I'm looking more into - instead of ignoring the rather lengthy discussions on the topic. This is huge. And dangerous. And, quite honestly, un-American.
