It's official: I'm surrounded by morons.

In a recent telephone poll, it was found that 63% (that's sixty-three percent) of Americans support the NSA's wiretapping program. From the article: "On Capitol Hill, though, news that the NSA has been gathering massive records on phone calls met criticism from shocked members of both political parties." Why is it our politicians are more upset about this than the average American? Sure, "if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about," is valid, however, once we allow one right to be infringed upon, there's a potential landslide over the horizon.

Latest Bush Approval Rating

Going down in the polls 1% every day now. That is impressive, even for His Majesty.

President Bush Discusses NSA Surveillance Program

Here are President Bush's remarks on the NSA Illegal Wiretapping program. There's nothing I like more than being lied to. Bye bye personal freedom and security. Hello Big Brother.

President Bush in 2008.

That's right, kids. You just may see Bush run in 2008. W. had this to say about his brother's possible run for presidency: "I would like to see Jeb run at some point in time, but I have no idea if that's his intention or not." Yikes. I just shat my pants. Even the mere possibility is frightening. Can we really trust America to vote in another presidential election? First of all, it's bad enough when your country turns out more voters for a stupid TV show that allows people with no talent to show it off (American Idol) than for an American Presidential election.

The largest database ever assembled in the world

As reported by McNews, the NSA is in the process of creating "the largest database ever assembled in the world" - to store records of every call ever made. In other words, the government will soon know every phone call you make, to whom you are speaking, and when you are making the call.

From the article:
The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren't suspected of any crime.

This flies in the face of what King George first said about the "Terrorist Surveillance Program" (newspeak for unconstitutional/illegal spying on Americans program), which was that it was 'targeted' at 'terrorists' calling from outside the country. Yeah, it is targeted all right - targeted at every American in the country. I believe this is lie #86342 for the Bush administration.
