I wrote this on another persons blog in response to another bloggers comment about how its ok for the Shrub to eavesdrop on American citizens:
We should vote on giving up freedoms..Bush is NOT a dictator that can pick and choose which constitutional amendments to honor or ignore.
If its not voted on by the people, then our duly elected officials get to do it. AND THEY DIDNT on the wiretapping exercise. BushCo is required by law to inform certain heads of Congress known as the Gang of 4 and the Gang of 8, when he undertakes spying on his OWN people..
We arent talking about listening in on Al Queda calls..we are talking about Aunt Mary saying the word bomb and Al Queda in the same sentence and bells and whistles go off somewhere at the Pentagon and half a dozen people spend the next week of their life listening to every single phone call Aunt Mary makes..and all the old bag talks about is her cherry pies shes making..
Its not only a waste of money..its illegal..
