Chipping away... 

One of the benefits of creating an atmosphere of fear in a country is the ease with which individual freedoms can be increasingly infringed upon (see: McCarthyism).

Bush is all a-twitter that someone had the gall to leak his newest spy game.

President Bush on Monday said disclosure of his domestic eavesdropping program was a “shameful act” and said he will keep using it “for so long as the nation faces the continuing threat of an enemy that wants to kill American citizens.”

Bush said he approved the action without such orders “because it enables us to move faster and quicker. We’ve got to be fast on our feet.

“It is legal to do so. I swore to uphold the laws. Legal authority is derived from the Constitution,” Bush added.

Has Bush ever been accused of competently thinking quickly? I think any of his unscripted question and answer sessions contradict this idea.

I know I feel safer because of this law.

Oh wait. Not really.

Guess I'd better stop calling abroad. Especially to countries with Muslims (or Communists) in them.

you are a commie, pinko, hippie, liberal whiner. get a job you silly sod. whatever else you think, this is not being written from fort collins.
I have a job! Even though it appears it doesn't want to work out!

This had better not be coming from Fort Collins. I know a certain wooden fort that may find itself reduced to ashes if I find out this came from that area...
After a threat like that you are just asking the government to spy on you. Good thing you are homeless and they have no idea where to find you.

Why are you worried if you have nothing to hide?
I'm not worried because I have something to hide, but more because of what deterioration could lead to. In McCarthy's day, you didn't necessarily have to be guilty of anything to be indicted: wrong place, wrong time; piss off the wrong people.
