    •  ACTION DIARY (none)
      Great diary. It seems so straightforward. Warrants are easy to get, so why does Bush have to do it illegally?

      Smintheus has his ACTION DIARY up, urging people to call their senators to demand action on the NSA spying. Please go recommend his diary. And call your senators

      Sorry to post just to pimp another diary, snook, in bold, no less, but your subject was relevant. I recommended yours as compensation.

      But this campaign is important. I've tried Specter's office a few times. The line is always busy.

      This campaign will work if we all call.


      We need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

      •  NSA has been needing scrutiny for a long time (none)
        I'm not even sure if the NSA officially exists yet. It's sort of sitting out there in the same area of spooky deniabilty that's housed big time tin foil hat topics like Area 51.

        I was driving to Virginia Beach from Richmond one day when I was growing up. I pulled off the Interstate to gas up at a Stuckey's... but I guess I took the wrong side of the exit. Instead of a Stuckey's, I see a military guardhouse. I pull up to ask how to get back to the Stuckey's and suddenly I have a very-large Marine at my window pointing an M-16 at what I would guess was my "center of mass."

        I found out a few years later I had pulled up to the front gate of some CIA training facility that appeared on no maps. See how you feel about the state of your freedoms when trying to get gas a Stuckey's can get you shot.
