Because freedom can't protect itself
You see, George Bush has been targeting one specific North Carolinian for years. He had his mason brother Jones Jr set up a backscatter x-ray at a non-descript ferry crossing near Legend's jouse, rattling his sabre and hoping this certain Legend would shut the f up. Well, you are reading him, and short of popping a cap in his ass, he'll be writing the lurid truth long after the new world order has been sent packing as the lying subversives they are. Never mind the detailed letter about Patriot Act abuse that Legend sent to the National Press Club titled "Dissemble", and Bush's 29 brotherly minute press conference where he then issued the grand hailing of distress 29 brotherly times before abruptly turning away, Bush is clearly every bit the raving idiot he has ever been, and the thought of his enemies pouring through his archives come January has his brothers in the intel services in attack mode, hoping to neutralize anyone who has ever wielded a pen against him so he can sleep SOMETIMES.
Bush is a sad mess, and I just hope the Putin and he aren't punking the US and Russia into an agreed upon limited conflict in the Balkans to ensure we never have a peace dividend, and KBR can abscond with more no bid money, and others PALLETS OF UNACCOUNTABLE DOLLARS.
Bush...a treasoner and criminal conspirator against democracy.
DISSEMBLE, brothers. That's what you do if you assist the enemies of democracy.
And investigations absent probable cause are poisoned fruit IN ALL COURTS. So ensure your ducks are in a row, lest you lose your effort to review.
ON THE SQUARE means more than Bush can ever comprehend, and he has abandoned all lodges by his misconduct. We are all tainted by his actions...get him gone for all our sakes. He is crazy, clinically.
Since Congress isn't doing their job and protecting the Constitution and Bill of Rights someone has to fight for the Amerian people. I have watched for years as our rights erode away little by little. Even the Supreme Court has failed as a representative for Americans. Everyone thought I was crazy because after 2 flights, I have refused to fly any place. I will picket the airlines til they remove these useless rules they can enforce.. My rights to enter a Federal Building has been interferred with and I have Federal I.D. My rights to cross the border in Mexico into the US, where my small purse was grabbed and gone through for no reason as the other agents knew who I was and told them to let me through and he refused. When asked where I was born and I replied, Seattle Washington, her replied, "WRONG!!! THE USA" and that was 1994. I have not gone back and won't. Please, we do have rights and I want them restored. A country run on fear is a country that has already lost everything. George Bush should be jailed for not upholding his oath of office and Congress, Cabinet and everyone else from secret service fbi,cia ALL FIRED
What am I missing here? How can the FBI unilaterally decide to do something that seems to violate Fourth Amendment guarantees against unwarranted search and seizure (with no probably cause). Does someone have to be arrested or something before this can be challenged as unconstitutional?
All groups that opposed Cheney beware. This is a license from Karl Rove to the FBI to infiltrate these groups and cover up all the Republican operatives who have been fueling them (the FBI)
These new guidelines for FBI investigations could lead to racial profiling and discrimination. They could also lead to violations of First Amendment rights. These new guidelines are very repressive. This could lead to an increased likelihood that the FBI might be used in political witchhunts. Democracy depends on people freely expressing themselves, revealing the abuses perpetrated by the government and other powerful entities in society. These new guidelines could suppress this very important process of revealing such abuses.
Okay, short of writing to our reps in congress, what do you all suggest we do.
