George W Quote of the Day

I saw on the Situation Room(CNN) today our President actually say this, "The FISA Act was written in 1978. We are in 2006."(Para-phrased) This was in defense of his NSA eavesdropping program.

The implication is that the law written in 1978 was good then, but not now. That may be the case. But, the Congress went to the White House after 9/11 and suggested changing the FISA laws, which they did not want to do. With that in mind, the law is the law, and should be followed as long as it is law. I think that all sides can agree with that.

My point, the point I've been writing on this blog for some time, (here, here, here, and here) is that the Constitution of the United States of America was adopted in 1789 and that is that. Yeah, we are reading it in 2006, but it is still the basis of our country and should be followed until the Constitution is amended. The President and his administration have set out a track record of corruption, Constitution raping, law breaking and corporate pimping. The middle class is becoming extinct because of this. The country is living in a state of implied fear and propaganda. The truth is we are no more lily white then any of the bad people that they taut. We are no worse, but no better. There is a general difference in governance and ideology, that's about it.

If this is how the President is going to follow the laws of this country, then he is no more then a simple criminal, only difference is he's President. He should be impeached and order restored.
As a nation we write checks, but have no balances. When there is no balance in your account you close it or deposit more. In this case the account is our freedoms and liberties. So, make sure and balance your ledgers and keep the checks and balances in place. For all of us.
