While it's been plainly obvious to anyone with a brain that Dubya's illegal wiretapping of law-abiding US citizens is, well, illegal, it's nice to see a court agree.
Of course, this will end up in the hands of Dubya's stooges in the Supreme Court, you will strike it down.
Because they're evil. Especially Scalia.
Free State advocate and Libertarian is arrested for, gasp, trying to hand out flyers prompting IRS employees to quit.
If Libertarians really cared about their freedoms as much as they do about money, they'd have stopped voting for Republicans long ago.
As expected, the Dubya administration (in the form of that utter failure secretary of the Department of Homeland SecurityMichael Chertoff) is already using the foiled liquid bombing plans to England as an excuse to call for increased illegal spying on innocent US citizens.
The only surprise is that they waited half a week.
Cindy Sheehan is back outside Dubya's ranch, demanding an answer to a simple question, for what did her son die?
A recent poll shows that half of Americans still think Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, regardless of the total lack of evidence.
In related news, half of U.S. still consists of utterly moronic gullible cowards unable to take responsibility for their own misguided wrongheaded mistakes. Cowards, every one of them.
How long does torture-loving US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales think the US can hold folks in Gitmo without trial?
Forever and ever and ever and ever.
Guy standing in his front yard takes a photo of the cops arresting a drug dealer. So the cops trespass on his property and arrest him too.
Is it a police state yet?
Judge throws out one of the cases against AT&T saying that making AT&T disclose whether they've been helping the government illegally spy on its own citizens would somehow help our enemies.
It's a secret police state. There's no other way to put it.
Just like a rural cop laying in wait, federal air marshals are writing up folks simply to make a freakin' quota. No suspicious activity reported, no raises and bonuses.
Really? Yep. Management says "There may come an occasion when you just don't see anything out of the ordinary for a month at a time, but I'm sure that if you are looking for it, you'll see something."
A Veteran is kicked out of a V.A. Medical Center for wearing a Veterans For Peace shirt. Even arrested. Yes, this country has gone completely insane.
If you're in the military and think that this administration cares about you or has even the slightest sincere respect for you, you are fooling yourself.

Ummm, sounds like a civil war, doesn't it.
School administrators in Framingham, Massachusetts, claim the right to search students' cell phones.
Y'know, kids actually do have some civil rights.
The FBI wants to force ISPs and router manufacturers to allow a backdoor for government intrusion in your Internet activities.

Gee, guess what! The government was trying to listen in on domestic phone call before 9/11.
Shocked? Surprised even? Didn't think so.
Congress is starting to hit back as Dubya continues to pretend that legally passed laws don't apply to him.
In a sane world, Dubya's actions would be called treason.
57% of Americans want Congress to pass a resolution outlining a plan for getting U.S. troops the hell out of Iraq.
Oh, and Dubya's approval rating is still below 40%.
Cheney makes the usual tough guy statements about not leaving Iraq. Blitzer asks Senator Biden is he want to respond. Biden says "No, I don't want to respond to him. He's at 20 percent in the polls. No one listens to him. He has no credibility. It's ridiculous."
It's not just your phone calls that the Dubya administration is tracking. They're watching your banking habits, too.
Global Warming? What Global Warming?
Oh, this Global Warming. According to the National Academy of Sciences, the "recent warmth is unprecedented for at least the last 400 years and potentially the last several millennia."
We broke the planet.
