Bush to Constitution: Go to hell.

Bush and Cheney have either got the biggest set of brass balls even forged on the earth, or they know that the American people are so cowed that we are willing to accept anything they do, so long as they are promising to protect us from terrorism.

A knock at the door in the middle of the night. A wife goes missing, taken from the street by sunglass wearing well dressed men in a sedan. A soldier reports for duty, and winds up a prisoner instead of a guard, and is never told why. These nightmares, born of my own imagination, may not be far from the mark.

In USA Today, Bush has made it clear that he intends to continue to spy. Based on behavior by Nixon, Reagan and Bush, one would be hard pressed to believe that this latest domentic spying problem is new. The people of the United States have always been seen as disposable serfs by the rulling class. Bush and Cheney, as well as Gore and Clinton, would gladly set aside whatever protections we have from the government, so long as they are the ones ignoring the Constitution.

It's like The Clash wrote in their song "Know your rights"

"You have a right not to be killed. Murder is a crime. Unless it's done by a police man. Or an aristocrat. Know your rights! These are your rights!"

In this case, the lyrics might say "You have a right not to be spied on. Illegal search and seziure is a crime. Unless it's done by the NSA. Or an oil magnate. Know your rights! These are your rights!"

Damn these people piss me off.

*Taking his bloodd pressure meds*

OK. I should be OK soon.
