Just When You Can't Imagine the Next Problem....

Bush decides that if he wants to read your mail, that's OK. This from the New York Daily News:

"President Bush has quietly claimed sweeping new powers to open Americans' mail without a judge's warrant, the Daily News has learned.

The President asserted his new authority when he signed a postal reform bill into law on Dec. 20. Bush then issued a "signing statement" that declared his right to open people's mail under emergency conditions.

That claim is contrary to existing law and contradicted the bill he had just signed, say experts who have reviewed it."

What next? They can read your mail, they can listen to your phone calls, they can read your e-mail, they can detain you in secret locations, can detain you indefinitely without evidence or ever filing charges, can torture you until you're incompetent (see the latest Jose Padilla news), and can confiscate everything you own on allegations without proof. They can declare Martial Law to quell 'civil unrest or riots' - which would be any attempt at overthrowing the power of the administration. They've even claimed to have the power to halt elections in case of emergency - and we all know that 'an emergency' is defined by the president saying we have one - so no 'right' to vote unless they decide to let you.

Hell, what's next is whatever is left. And that's a good question - WHAT IS LEFT for these bastard traitors to undermine and take away from US citizens? (And believe me, if it happens here, all of Europe will follow quickly. The rest of the world is pretty much there already.) At the moment I can't think of anything as important as what's already taken away. So help me out folks, what is going to go next?
