Grasping at Straws… I’m not buying it.

The administration is really grasping at straws now, hoping that most of the people will be fooled. I personally doubt they are fooling anyone, but alas, I fear most people don’t really care or pay proper attention. Our government has been taken over by a gang of criminals!

Here’s what Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said in an AP article:
" a 15-day grace period allowing warrantless eavesdropping under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act demonstrates that Congress knew such surveillance would be essential in wartime."

Hello Mr. Gonzales?! What it demonstrates quite clearly to anyone who cares to notice, is that the President was given all the authority and tools he needed without having to resort to illegal warrantless eavesdropping.

There is only one reason for warrantless eavesdropping, that is for spying on political and personal enemies. This is completely against the law and against what our fore fathers had specified in the constitution. This is the kind of behaviour you would expect from a dictator, not the ruler of a free country.

Shame on you Mr. Gonzales
. Our chief law enforcement officer supports law breaking by our top executive.

Shame on you Mr. Bush
. Beware of wishful thinking. If you think the American people are buying your doublespeak, best to think again. We are not afraid of terrorists, the only terrorist we have our eye on are the ones illegally eavesdropping on us... is that you?

The Truth Lies Here

That’s the latest tag line for the History channel, but it sums up how I feel about the gang of criminals that run our government.

“SAN ANTONIO - President Bush strongly defended his domestic spying program on Sunday, calling it legal as well as vital to thwarting terrorist attacks, and contended the leak making it public had caused "great harm to the nation."

What a line of BS! It is clear now that Bush has done a great harm to the nation by violating our constitutional rights.

"This is a limited program designed to prevent attacks on the United States of America and, I repeat, limited," Bush told reporters

If you believe that, or anything that man has to say, then I have some swamp land I’d like to sell you. How can we believe anything he or his government has to say?

Let’s see, he was reluctant to have an official investigation into 911, the only video evidence of what hit the Pentagon was confiscated by the FBI and won’t be released. Why not? If it supports the official conspiracy theory about what happened, let’s see it. If not, then what are we suppose to assume??

We now start preemptive wars on people that have no ability to harm us.

Unending reports of torture, mistreatment of prisoners and maintaining secret prisons are standard.

Now, when illegal activity by the government is uncovered the procedure is to find out who leaked it instead of dealing with the law breakers.

It’s getting to be too much.

I am concerned, because what seems to be happening is we are all getting side tracked debating the particulars. Everyone has their idea’s and beliefs about certain events, but the fact is, the facts about these events are obscured and hidden, making meaningful debate an exercise in futility.

Since the government is keeping much of the information secret how can we reach any valid conclusion? The only conclusion we can make is that something fishy is going on. So what should concern us is what kind of people are running our government?
