Bush has exported so much democracy there's too little left here at home (7/2/06)
”Privacy is dying in America—not with a fight but a yawn.”
Jonathan Turley, law professor at George Washington University, pointing out how the Bush administration, after Congress put a stop to the Total Information Awareness program, quietly and systematically, with utter disregard for the Constitution, began implementing TIA piecemeal. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which was assigned the task of mining information for TIA, has established databanks that continually invade almost every aspect of a citizen’s private life.
[(Vice) President Cheney and his puppet, Dumb Bunny Bush, are going after The New York Times for exposing their naked ambitions to public scrutiny. The creeps are eating democracy one bite at a time, but people are so inured to secrecy and government spying that no one is raising much of a fuss. As Turley writes, “It is something that our fiercely independent ancestors would have never imagined.” The Neocon Propaganda Machine is working overtime to revise history as it happens. Future generations of Americans won’t even know they’ve been robbed of their most cherished possession—liberty. Time for a rousing chorus of Homeland, Homeland Uber Allus.]
