What’s The Fourth Amendment, Again?

    Under President Bush, one of the most controversial of his administration’s anti-terrorism tactics was wiretapping. It ticked off some on the right, worried some in the middle and made the left rage uncontrollably. Now, after falling in line with the Bush administration last year on wiretapping, against his campaign promise- and, according to this writer, even going further than the Bush administration- President Obama’s Department | Read More »

    Privacy, Security, and The need to say “No!”

    After 9/11 I heard so many people cry out for the government to provide more security.  There was an obvious sense of worry and even in many cases, outright panic – and for good reason.  9/11 killed thousands of innocent Americans going about their daily lives.  It would change America forever.  I just hoped it wouldn’t change the essence of who we were. Unfortunately, it | Read More »

    DNC Admits Barack Obama WAS Collecting Information on People Via Flag@Whitehouse.gov

    Greg Sargent, doing his part as a mouthpiece for the online left, is trying his best to deflect concerns over flag@whitehouse.gov, but in the process reveals that Democrats are now admitting the White House collected data on individuals from flag@whitehouse.gov.Here’s the deal — and you’ll have to pardon wading through the stupid that is Greg Sargent regurgitating DNC talking points:John Cornyn has a contact form | Read More »

    ACLU’s Pizza Palace Health Care Privacy Ad

    O’Connor still doesn’t get it

    Maybe you’re like me, but the more former Justice O’Connor speaks, the more I’m convinced she is separated from reality.  This morning I was doing something I rarely do – watching Morning Joe on MSNBC.  I was flipping through the tube and noticed Justice O’Connor talking to Joe, so I stopped for a minute to listen. Joe said he, although a pro-life conservative, was always | Read More »

    Fusion Centers

    I am hardly one who agrees with the ACLU, but I do on their concern about “Fusion Centers”. From ACLU.org: A new institution is emerging in American life: Fusion Centers. These state, local and regional institutions were originally created to improve the sharing of anti-terrorism intelligence among different state, local and federal law enforcement agencies. Though they developed independently and remain quite different from one | Read More »

    SCHIP is just the beginning

    Today President Obama signed the SCHIP bill to much fanfare (wouldn’t it have been cool if he had walked out for the signing ceremony, said “just kidding guys” and walked back out?).    In his remarks he said severl frightening things.    I will leave aside the issue that SCHIP will now be founded on cigarette taxes, meaning fewer people will smoke, thus causing less tax to be collected | Read More »

    Democrats Hate Privacy Invaders. Unless…

    From the diaries by Erick It is interesting to see how Democrats react to abuse of power and invasion of private personal information. The Democratic Party made President Bush a pariah over his supposed act of “domestic spying” when Bush was attempting to stop terror attacks against citizens of the U.S. They called him all manner of names, tyrant, despot, etc., etc., even though no | Read More »

    The big “O” stands for “Orwell”

    “Gosh, I don’t know how they got in, it must have been one of those pesky test accounts…” This should chill to the bone and Sarah (I don’t think Mac will do it) should beat Big Brother Obama up one coast and down the other with it. Or just give it to Biden, he’ll eat anything… http://www.dispatch.com/live/content/local_news/stories/2008/10/24/joe.html?sid=101 (I don’t post much – you folks say | Read More »

    Let’s Amend the Constitution

    One of the most stubborn areas of political debate today concerns the Supreme Court and its power to legislate or “interpret the law” as they prefer to call it. The result is that the Court is creating political issues that cannot be resolved through the political process. There is also the ongoing problem of earmarking during appropriations and the always problematic federal budgeting process. I | Read More »
