Samuel Johnson 1775 : “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel”

A federal judge has ruled that Google Inc. must comply with the FBI’s warrantless demands for customer data, rejecting the company’s argument that the government’s practice of issuing so-called national security letters to telecommunication companies, Internet service providers, banks and others was unconstitutional and unnecessary.

FBI counter-terrorism agents began issuing the secret letters, which don’t require a judge’s approval, after Congress passed the USA Patriot Act in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Better to spend trillions of dollars, start multiple wars and destroy the US Constitution – than to trust airline pilots to carry pistols. We trust airline pilots with massive projectiles loaded with jet fuel and hundreds of passengers flying 600 MPH, but we don’t trust them with a .45 revolver.

    So true. Not to mention the immorality of all the murders the government cult members have committed since 911 in their revenge crusade.

    If I say something against patriotism the right wing goes nuts and if I say something against man made GW the left goes nuts. ugh.

      According to my old Webster’s, a patriot is one who zealously supports both country and leader. I have not been a patriot for a good number of years, and not because I have a problem with the ‘country’.

    And Obummer has just appointed Conely to lead the FBI. Conely was a key Bush man behind illegal wiretapping and torture.

    plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose
