This Just In

I'm on MoveOn.org's email notification list. Every once in a while they send me petitions to sign. They just sent me one on an appalling maneuver being tried in Congress. Seems that . . .

"This week, the Sentate is planning to quietly hold a vote that would pardon President Bush for breaking the law by illegally wiretapping innocent Americans without warrants. Acoording to Senator Leahy, the bill would "...immunize officials who have violated federal law by authorizing such illegal activities." (quote directly from the MoveOn.org email)

If this doesn't scare the crap out of you, I don't know what will. If this bill passes, our Presidents - both current and future - will be above the law. Exactly what was it we were suppposed to be doing in Iraq? Oh, yeah. Spreading democracy. If we're successful in Iraq, maybe we can move there after our democracy crumbles into useless offal.

Interested in signing MoveOn.org's petition? Try this link: PETITION

If the link doesn't work properly, send me an email via the sidebar (under the FtTP heading) or use the comment link below and I'll forward it to you.
