It’s official

February 12, 2008

Senate Democrats are wussies. At least 20 of them are anyway. These 20 voted to end debate on a bill to provide immunity for the phone companies who cooperated with the government’s warrantless spying program. By ending the debate, the phone companies are effectively provided immunity from prosecution.

Don’t buy any of the b.s. about the government “selectively” data mining. Just ask Mark Klein, an employee of AT&T for 20+ years, who discovered that the entire flow of AT&T’s Internet traffic in several operational centers was being diverted to the NSA. It appears to be yet another instance of our civil liberties “dropping the soap in the shower” with this administration standing behind us, ready to pounce.

And for all the Googlephobes out there: at least they stood up to the guvment & refused to hand over search data.
