Bush today

Well, a little troubled by this whole "domestic espionage" thing today--even more by the Bush camp's insistence on saying they have done nothing wrong. Anyone who is even passably familiar with the system of checks and balances in this country knows they have gone way out of bounds. Why even bother passing the patriot act when they are just going to go and do whatever they'd like in the interests of national security. I have nothing new to add to this, except that I was more than disturbed at this line from Bush: "Open debate about law would warn the enemy." Yes, God forbid we ever have open debate in this country. No one has ever died for that right, Mr. Bush, have they? Ugh.
