Our fantastic Congress is about to give Telecom Man a pass on spying on you, a quite literal get-out-of-jail-free card, which I find fundamentally un-American, creepy, fascist, and a slippery-slope to tinhorn dictatorship, Cheney’s masturbation fantasy. Once this stuff is gone, it doesn’t come back. If you don’t do anything, you may as well be declaring your willingness to have a camera and microphone on you full time in Big Brother’s best interest.

Regardless of your political affiliation, aren’t you a little tired of the careless rich and powerful getting their way with the law? What happened to the GOP principle of “personal accountability?” Remember, under the law, corporations are people, too.

Go here and join at least (it takes all of 20 seconds) and donate if you can. This is serious business for your children and grandchildren.

More here from Glenn, a 1st Amendment attorney with excellent skills for exposing the madness.

Don’t come whining to me when The Man screws you later. More likely it will be someone you know, like your kids or grandkids, or even someone you know who knows someone.

In any case, some of us saw it coming.

Update: The point is that it is obvious the Democrats were up to their asses in this, too.
