Senate to Re-Look Warrantless Wiretapping
Many of us were very critical of warrantless wiretapping as proposed by the Bush Administration. Many of us were also disappointed in our leadership in the FISA struggle last year. As it turns out, we had good reason to be. Now it appears that Americans were illegally wiretapped and the Senate is set to hold hearings on it soon.
Right-Wing Hatemongers Dream of Secession
You know how Democrats are always being lectured on our patriotism by right-wing zealots. Many Republicans try and paint the Democratic Party as un-American and contend that we hate our own country. Well, something interesting happened at a tea party in Texas yesterday. Despite all the big talk of loving America and being patriotic, Repubicans were actually endorsing seceding from the union. The sad part is one of their "leaders", Texas Gov. Rick Perry actually didn't think it was that bad an idea!!
