• Fourth Amendment Of The United States Constitution

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." The recent capitualtion of the United States House of Representaives to the Bush Administrations demands for TELECOM IMMUNITY in anticipation of the United States Senate following suit shall not stand. Congress is empowered to pass laws. If they pass a bad law it needs to be repealed. This is bad law and this site seeks to have this law repealed.

Song Interlude

A long, long time ago…
I can still remember
How that parchment used to make me smile.
And I thought that we had a chance
That Freedom’d get more than glance
And, maybe, we’d be happy for a while.

But July 9th made me shiver
With every vote cast on the Potomac river,
Bad news in the Congress
About them now I care less.

I can’t remember if I cried
When I saw the way our Senators lied
But something touched me deep inside
The day the parchment died.

So bye-bye, Constitution goodbye
Drove my Chevy to the Congress
But the Congress just died
And them good old boys were drinkin’ koolaide and lied
Singin’, “this’ll be the day that we spy.
“this’ll be the day that we spy.”

Did we write the Declaration of Independence?
Do you believe in freedom’s transcendence?
Only if the pundits tell you to?
Do you believe the people rule?
Or are we just a bunch of fools?
I don’t believe we are, do you?

Well I know that you’re as pissed as me
‘cause I saw you enjoying Liberty
We both are not amused
Now our country’s more than bruised!

I was just a normal working schmuck
With an impossible mortgage and a pickup truck
But I knew that I was out of luck
The day the parchment died.

I started singin’,
“bye-bye, Constitution goodbye
Drove my Chevy to the Congress
But the Congress just died
And them good old boys were drinkin’ koolaide and lied
Singin’, “this’ll be the day that we spy.
“this’ll be the day that we spy.”

  1. This FISA bill was a test. They now know they can do anything, with no accountability. Can Bush suspend the Constitution? Sure, why not! Who’s going to stop him? What would the ‘opposition party’ do about it? Nothing. What would we do about it? Nothing. Well, we might post in our blogs about how outraged we are. How much good has that been doing? Suppose since it’s worked so well up ’till now, we should keep doing it? Right? Can Bush bomb Iran? Sure! Could President Obama bomb Iran, or Pakistan, or Canada? Sure, why not!

    Your ‘rights’ exist solely at the whim of unaccountable politicians. How does it feel?

  2. Hope is not lost – the ACLU has filed suit against FISA. When the American public begins to REALLY understand what’s happening, they will reject it too. Our work is still ahead of us.

    Private contractors are copying all U.S. telephone and internet communications, that’s an intellectual property security risk.

    See http://youtube.com/watch?v=ojkgOK8Im9o it’s fast and rough, the message can be refined as time allows.

  3. A lawsuit? hahahaha. You trust SCOTUS to do the right thing? If they don’t, what then? Impeach the Supreme Court? Who’s going to do that, the same congress that just nullified the 4th Amendment?
