MoveOn.org has a petition to give Congress demanding they reverse their recent capitulation to Bush and Gonzales’ illegal wiretapping program. It’s serious, folks. The government can listen in on your international calls without you knowing and without legal recourse for you.
It’s time to start getting on the Dems’ asses about this. I expect the Republicans to go along with Bush everytime. They’re sheep. But we elected a new Congress to stop this sort of bullshit from happening. If we don’t get Dems who will do the job, there are progressive Dems waiting in the wings to take their places. Luckily, I moved from Elgin, where my former rep-capitulator Melissa Bean has constituents. She should be flooded with phone calls and emails big time.
