Here we go again!


After all of the hullabaloo over the last two weeks about the NSA's secret domestic - and warrantless - spying program, now we learn that the U.S. Justice Department is opening an investigation. Well, that didn't take long. Maybe we'll finally get some concrete legal action taken against the Bush administration.

Oh, wait. What's that? They're not investigating the Bush administration's illegal wiretapping, you say? They're actually investigating the alleged leak of classified information about the program?

Here we go again!

Just as we saw after information came out about the secret prison network around the globe, these people seem to be more concerned with a "leak" than with the legality of the program in question. How freaking backward is that?!

I'm finding it increasingly difficult to keep from screaming, "What the hell is wrong with this country?!" Apparently, our leaders feel it's okay to make their own rules/laws/decrees, label them as top secret, and then persecute anyone who should divulge the activities, many of which appear to be of dubious legal standing.

Is it just me or is something completely out of whack here? It's just so wrong, not to mention frightening, that these people feel that they are completely above and beyond the law. And it's not as though - contrary to right-wing belief - that an overwhelming majority of the U.S. voting population elected Bush and Cheney. In fact, 49% DIDN'T vote for them the last time around.

So what's next? Are they going to declare a terror emergency in 2008 and cancel the election so they can remain in power? At this point, I wouldn't put anything past these criminals. As Americans, all of us should be frightened of the terrorists...the ones occupying the White House, that is. They're destroying the Constitution bit by bloody bit.

Yeah, you know I've kinda pooh-poohed thoughts to the effect that the Bushies will seek an exemption to the two-term limit, but declaring a 'terror emergency' and canceling an election now THAT I wouldn't put past them.
