Subject: RE: BS: Spying, Secrecy, and Presidential Power
I'm really curious. Is this new America that our "conservative" friends started working for 20 years ago when they planted the seeds of the current monoparty government. I don't remember anyone saying "support us, and we will re-instate the rights to hold US citizens without charge and convict them using secret, torture induced, hearsay". In fact didn't I hear some of our conservative friends howling their fool heads off about maybe 15 to 20 FBI files somehow ending up in the Whitehouse? That doesn't seem like much now does it. Oh wait, I forgot, Clintons where involved so that was heinous. Bush's assumption of quite literally unfettered despotic -- eerily Soviet style -- powers is no big deal. Am I right FOXies? You actually wanted us to bring down the Soviet Union so, we could assume their former role, all along? Sorry I misunderstood you Comrades.
