In case anyone has forgotten already

by Duckman GR

While the corporate media keeps stirring the Terrorism sham pot this week, let me remind you why.

NSA's Broad Wiretapping Program Unconstitutional

"It was never the intent of the framers to give the president such unfettered control, particularly where his actions blatantly disregard the parameters clearly enumerated in the Bill of Rights," she wrote. " . . . There are no hereditary Kings in America and no powers not created by the Constitution. So all 'inherent powers' must derive from that Constitution."

It's good to remember that, because bushco would rather you worry about terrorists loading airplane barf bags with deadly weapons of mass destruction, and there's always the dead missing blond girl story which has no value whatsoever except as a corporate mass media sales gimmick to distract us.

And why distract us, you ask?

Bush: It's 'Naive' to Believe the President Must Follow the Law

"I would say that those who herald this decision simply do not understand the nature of the world in which we live," Mr. Bush said in a question-answer session at Camp David, Md.

Because we're all stupid and cowards and love al Queda and hate America. Which is why we want to preserve and protect the Constitution from the frightened little men and women of bushco.

The president resorted to his tired argument, "if Al Qaeda is calling into the United States, we want to know why they're calling." So do we.

Of course, that's not he issue with the surveillance and spying, it's the spying on all the other calls of regular Americans and journalists and politicians that they are conducting, American to American within our borders, that is the problem.

And bush and his shorter than bush flunky Heinrich gonzalez will clearly continue violating the law and the judge's order until somebody actually forces them to stop.

As a Talk Left commenter, scribe, notes, [my highlights-DGR]

The problem is, in a system based upon precedent, the only remedy to end this Constitutional crisis is to impeach, convict and remove not only Bush, but Cheney (him first, please) and then the remainder of his cabal. Waiting until the end of the terms to which they have claimed election will only serve to make it OK for some successor preznit to do worse than these bags of protoplasm have done already. Waiting will not end this Constitutional crisis - it will institutionalize it and make worse the order of the day.

So don't forget, bush is a criminal in the eyes of the law.
