Bush defends spying after database report - U.S. Security - MSNBC.com
WASHINGTON - Following a report that the U.S. agency in charge of a domestic spying program is building a database of every phone call made within the country, President Bush told the nation from the White House that all anti-terrorism efforts are within the law.

Facing new concerns in Congress, President Bush referred to the report but did not confirm or deny it, and instead sought to assure Americans that their privacy is being “fiercely protected.”

“We are not mining or trolling through the personal lives of millions of innocent Americans,” Bush said. “Our efforts are focused on links to al-Qaida and their known affiliates."
Then WTF are they collecting it for?

I can think of several things off-hand:

1) Blackmailing people calling porn lines into contributing to the Republican Party

2) Harassing anyone who calls any number deemed objectionable by Bush (ie. Democratic Party, Planned Parenthood, yr mom, etc.)

This is so outrageous I can hardly speak. Anyone have the definitive list of the Evil Doers? The only company they talk about refusing to provide records to the govt is Quest. What about Sprint? What about T-Mobile?

So if you call your rep to complain abou this, the fact is likely to be noted in the deep memory of the govt.

Good afternoon, friends. I haven't been online much since NOVA (and still have some prime pix to upload for you) because I've actually been working on some art for a change, preparing for a solo print show up in Michigan.

So I checked the news for first time in a few days and discover THIS CRAP.

And on top of it all, Chris was thrown out on American Idol. (Isn't this about the time Constantine was thrown out last year?)

(Sorry to trivialize for a moment).

If a single Republican is elected this fall, we as a nation are doomed. There are links on the side. Please use them.
