Here we go folks...

As I have been posting on this subject for what seems like my entire adult life, we are about to see an end to the FISA telecom immunity story for good. When the House caves in finally and gives Bush the immunity bill he has been terrifying the country that he needed, that will be the end of it. We will never fully know what the president and the NSA were doing. We will never know if it actually was illegal. We will never know the full scope of this story. Remember people, this wasn't the president wiretapping the Democratic National Committee building to hear what his opponents were up to. This was your president casting a huge data mining net over the entire country to see what YOU were up to. Hope you haven't bought any Noam Chomsky books recently or you might be getting a knock on the door soon. What this also enables is future president's, whether Republican or Democratic, to do the same damn thing all over again. This is a sad day for our fading "democracy". Please pour a little from your 40 oz tonight in loving memory.


"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both." Benjamin Franklin



UPDATE: Here's blue gal's piece on C&L about how Bush will bury his legacy for future generations to never look into. Good times.
