The American Civil Liberties Union and the New York Civil Liberties Union said in the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan that the public has been kept "almost entirely in the dark" about implementation of the FISA Amendments Act of 2008.

Among other things, the law shielded telecom companies from lawsuits <span style='font-size: 20pt'>under the warrantless wiretapping efforts initiated after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.</span>

The suit seeks a court order requiring the government to immediately process requests for information made by the civil rights groups about six months ago.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>According to the complaint, the 2008 law gave the government <u>"virtually limitless power </u>to collect Americans' international e-mails and telephone calls en masse, without a warrant, without suspicion of any kind, and with only very limited judicial oversight."</span>

The suit said the public deserves to know how broadly the government has interpreted the law, how the surveillance powers granted by the law have been used, whether those powers have been abused and how many U.S. citizens' and residents' communications have been collected. </div></div>


This is clearly illegal and TOTALLY against the the ideals that the US CON stands for but was there even a whimper from todays Tea Party people then?

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>I can't remember any objection from the Right to the Govt takeover of privacy.</span>


..............but then again, in those days the Pres was a good ol' boy you could trust.........

None of them objected to any of Bush/Cheney/Libby/Rove/Rice/Rumsfeld Multiple abuses of power, obstruction of Justice, treason, lying to the Congress, you name it, they did it, and none of the sheepies around here minded one bit, and in fact, they defended all of it!

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">To hear President Bush tell it, he's on the side of the angels when it comes to federal spending.

In his Saturday radio address, he blasted congressional Democrats for pursuing "tax and spend policies," while trumpeting his own commitment to keep taxes low and restrain federal spending.

He said his plan will produce a balanced federal budget by 2012.

But what Mr. Bush didn't mention, and what he almost never mentions, is the National Debt.

With good reason.

On the day he took office, the National Debt stood at this unfathomable number:

$5,727.776.738,304.64

In fiscal shorthand, that's $5.7 trillion dollars. Trillion with a "T."

Six and a half years later, the Bureau of Public Debt tells us the National Debt clocks in at a staggering:

$8,835,268,597,181.95

That's $8.8 trillion <span style='font-size: 20pt'>an increase of $3.1 trillion dollars since January 20, 2001. And that amounts to a jump of 54% during Mr. Bush's watch. </span>

If you wanted to pay it off, dividing it equally among the U.S. population (estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau to be 302,103,675), it would come to $29,245.82 for every man, woman and child.

Sot it's not really hard to understand why Mr. Bush almost never mentions it. </div></div>

He doubled the Nat Debt and still left the country in crisis!
Remember how those outraged GOP/Rep/Con TP yhinking citizens marched to the WH and demanded that GW stop selling their children's future?
No?.....nor do I.

And you persist in being a willing tool of the party.

Where is your disdain for the Obama regime's deficit spending which dwarfs what you are complaining about here?

What's that?

Dearest leader told you that deficits are only bad when the other party does it?

Imagine that.

You still don't get it!
Spending by Bush was bad.
Spending by Obama is good, but it's Bush's fault Obama is spending!

Lunacy from the left!

LMAO! Obviously the right didn't listen to Bush's warnings about the coming depression, that could last as long as over a decade, if we didn't bail out the banks, and spend money to stimulate the economy.

Amazing how easily they distort reality to suit their twisted partisan logic.

One president, Bush, inherits a budget surplus, a big incrfease in jobs, a pretty strong economy, and then he cuts taxes and launches two incredibly costly wars, one of which made everything worse because he broke the Geneva Conventions, and disgraced our country in the process, while borrowing more momey than all previous administrations combined, and then bush leaves the country in the worst economic disaster since the onslauight of The Great Depression, and the other one, President Obama, inherits all of Bush's messes, at once, and must spend to stimulate the economy, save more jobs after Bush's monthly losses of over seven hundred thousand, and continue to work to avoid complete global disaster!

Then they bash him for not taking the time in the midst of all of that to reappoint the corrupt heads of agencies left over fvrom the Bush Administration, while Republicans block every appointee!

Now that's what I call idiots!

Their hypocracy knows no bounds! Bush was hemmoraging American jobs for two years before he left.

Clinton created over five million!

Sixteen National Intelligence Agencies stated that Bush's Iraq policy, and his torture policy, emboldened our enemies, and increased terrorism, franchised their operations, increased terrorist attacks, and recruitment.

Facts are not included their view of the world, that's why we see an entire state, losing it's most precious pristine environment, and industries, fishing and tourism, while still calling for more of the same, dangerous deep water drilling, which will continue to threaten our oceans, our future and our health.

Breaking our dependence on oil, creates a safer world for all Americans, AND the environment, and adds jobs to our economy, which cannot be outsourced.

They compare a president who inherited a country that was not in any wars, with a budet surplus, and who had unprecedented warnings on both a foreign attack, and on a devastating hurricane, but who failed to do one single thing to prepare for, or prevent the damages of either....

to the president who inherited all of Bush's F-ups, then they write about common sense? BWA HA HA HA!


It's as if they are too dumb to realize that a collapsed economy, and a completely corrupted "free" market, isn't harder to inherit than a budget surplus!

Clinton ran this country a thousand times better than Bush! The right is just too uneducated to understand the results of Republican Policies.


NUTS!

Please let us know at what point in your mind did Bush become an economic expert. You don't believe anything he ever said, and think everything he ever did was wrong.
That, all of a sudden, you would hang on his economic predictions is laughable.

You are such a partisan wimp it's amazing.

<span style="color: #000066">TARP was the Bush policy, period. dont try to lay it on Democratics, whenn they, and we, were in no position to take a chance on another Depression, a global one at that.

Events at the time indicated a domino bank collapse. The question is, which party preaches deregulation and an unregulated market????

Deregulation, and no government oversight, goes all the way back to Reagan, along with the amnesty which invited hordes of illegals, and moving away from deepending our dependence on foreign oil, with whoom Bush and Cheney have had close ties for decades...

You just can't stand the fact that it is obvious that Republican policies have devastated this country, so you insult those of us who predicted all of our current disastrous legacy from Bush, and the proof of failed Republican policies.

I base my views on factual information, while you buy into the rhetoric of nutjobs like Limpballs and Palin.
