Because Freedom Can't Wait For The Next President

Thanks to the ACLU and Electronic Frontier Foundation, we the people of these United States have one last opportunity to stop the government from spying on us without redress. This is a short post today to provide you with information about the suits and links to follow their progress.

The ACLU suit is summarized on http://www.aclu.org/safefree/nsaspying/faachallenge.html and go here for a conversation with Glenn Greenwalk and Jameel Jaffer, Director of the ACLU's National Security Project.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has filed a class action lawsuit against AT&T (Hepting v. AT&T) which may now be voided thanks to Congress, and describe their strategy post FISA signing here. Because I'm feeling patriotic today, I thought I would end this entry by providing the logo of the National Security Agency who has a SERIOUSLY PISSED OFF EAGLE on it. Oh, and that "key" that it's clutching in its talons (its prey of course)... that's the key to your front door and phone and Internet and financial information. Now, say after me... I pledge allegiance to the flag, of the National Security State.... with liberty and justice for all. I forget, am I supposed to say "amen" at the end?

Earl, thank so much for your comment. How can you help?

1/ keep reading my blog and leaving comments.. I LOVE HEARING FROM PEOPLE

2/ Give money to the ACLU

3/ Help me keep up the pressure on Barak to take advantage in the loophole in the FISA law that allows for criminal prosecution of warrantless spying. That's our best hope on the Barak angle to this.

4/ Work along with me and others to uncover why the Democrats are not representing their constituency. There is a scandal in there somewhere and they need to be brought out into the light of day to prevent future trouble of this king. No doubt... "shocks" will be created by our government to scare people and we need an aware and fearless citizenry to not let this happen again.

How can I help you?
