Had the Bush Administration conformed with the existing FISA, there would not be such a brouhaha now. Why on earth could they not get warrants since FISA gives the government 72 hours from the start of the wiretapping to obtain a warrant? In the past very few warrants were ever denied. So what was the problem? I guess the Bush Administration wanted far-reaching blanket warrants and they knew they would not get those. Also, it allowed the Bush Administration to spy on its political opponents... Shades of Nixon.
Whatever it is, the latest development is just a scam as usual. Bush will never renounce his imperial powers.Comment Posted By Evil Progressive On 18.01.2007 @ 09:50
"The Sunnis had their chance, it is time to crush them."
Ahem! Most of the Muslim world is Sunni. Saudi Arabia -- the great friend of the Bush family -- is Sunni. Do you think for one second that the Saudis are going to support ethnic cleansing in Iraq? Or the rest of the Muslim world? Why do you think that Cheney was summoned to Saudi Arabia in December?Comment Posted By Evil Progressive On 8.01.2007 @ 15:58
Bush blew off Ford's STATE funeral as well. He is too busy clearing brush in Crawford. He blew off Reagan's as well, but at least he had the excuse of a G8 meeting.Comment Posted By Evil Progressive On 31.12.2006 @ 08:34
Ah! Now the lunatic fringe is foaming at the mouth because Reid will not attend Ford's funeral.
Maybe he has better things to do -- like working -- than pose for photo-ops.
Meanwhile, the U.S. is playing referee in the Iraq civil war and the Decider has just decided to have a "non-decisional" meeting about what to do with the quagmire in Iraq.
You people are just pathetic. You hate Democrats/liberals so much that you would rather side with the terrorists rather than push for bi-partisanship. Thank goodness, you are a minority.Comment Posted By Evil Progressive On 28.12.2006 @ 11:22
"And whether the ABC revelations are real cause for concern or not, it just goes to illustrate only one of the possible abuses this database lends itself to. If you wait until the day the government sends in their health police to round up all the diabetics who eat too much sugar and puts them in â€œhealth campsâ€ for their own good, it will be too late."
Yep! What goes around comes around. Suppose that the next government uses the database to round up the Kool-Aid addicts and send them to detox...Comment Posted By Evil Progressive On 16.05.2006 @ 11:37
So now the President of Iran is a Liberal? You guys are really desperate...
His "liberal talking points" are about as liberal as Lenin's, Stalin's, Castro's, Mussolini's, Franco's, Hitler's, Pinochet's, etc... Note that I put left-wing dictators in the same bag as right-wing dictators. Dictators are dictators, whatever their ideological inclination. They all suppress freedom of speech and throw their opponents in jail (or worse).
Keep on drinking the Kool-Aid. I suspect that, as your very own little dictator's approval ratings go further and further into the toilet, you will need higher and higher doses of your favorite reality-effacing drugs. 31% approval ratings and falling...
You are in the minority, and increasingly clearly, you are the unhinged minority. Not to worry, though, you are in good company. There are people out there who think that Hitler was a hero.Comment Posted By Evil Progressive On 10.05.2006 @ 21:11
So, Rick Moran has read the letter, because, of course, he can read Persian?Comment Posted By Evil Progressive On 10.05.2006 @ 12:54
