The Terrorists Have Won!

Those F&%^$#!%$# Democrats If they hate America so much, why don’t they just leave???

We had such a nice cozy arrangement between the federal government and the telecommunications industry. The telecom companies were enabling our intelligence agencies to spy on Americans — anybody, any time they felt like it. And in return, we promised the telecom companies they wouldn’t be sued over civil liberties or the Bill of Rights or whatever it is those whiny liberals are always wailing about.

And now, the House of Representatives has shown us — once again — whose side they're on. They’ve allowed the Protect America Act to expire. The telecom companies are no longer immune from lawsuits triggered by their spying activities. And because of this, they might be less willing to help the government spy on American citizens.

The spoiled drug-addled fratboy President of the United States has been begging, pleading and stamping his foot, trying to get Congress to provide retroactive immunity for the telecom companies so they can't get sued by every whiner that comes along. These Congressional Democrats had better hurry up and bend over for Dumbya — and you know they will; they always do — before the terrorists attack.

If the telecom industry doesn’t have retroactive immunity from lawsuits, what dire circumstances can we expect? Well, for openers:

This means Osama bin Laden and Hillary Clinton can talk on the phone with no fear whatsoever. There'll be nothing to deter them. They can talk about their plan to bring America to her knees, and we won't even know about it until it’s too late. That smoking gun will turn out to be a giant mushroom cloud!

Barack Obama is probably sending a triumphant e-mail right now to Vladimir Putin and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (with a copy to Hugo Chavez). “Yes!!! It worked. Those stool pigeons in Congress fell for our propaganda, hook line and sinker. Now we can hatch our evil plans and get all of our codes and signals worked out. And then — BWAAAHAAHAAHAAHAA!!!!! Praise Allah!”

These damn Democrats/liberals. Don't they know that in order to be patriotic citizens, our phone conversations have to be listened to and the telecomm companies must be immuned from lawsuits? Now we're just enabling a terrorist attack. I'm moving to Cuba.

Can you imagine how difficult it might be for a Verizon employee to hear a Bin-Laden--Hillary conversation, and not being able to tell anyone about it? Talk about a frustrating job!

Jo: Yes, Cuba; there's a country that knows how it's done. Or Russia or China. Someplace where Big Brother is monitoring everything all the time and everybody is safe and secure. This freedom nonsense is just too risky.

People In The Sun: I hadn't thought of that. That sure would be frustrating for a telecom worker, just bursting at the seams trying to hold in all that titillating information.

I just hope the House Democrats don't cave like the Senate Democrats did.

Libhom: I hope the same thing. But if the Democrats actually stand their ground and stand up to Bush, it'll be a first.

They might as well round us all up and cart us off.

Great post Tom, I guess it's good to be in the telecommunications business at this period of time. They have Bush to assure they want be and cannot be touched by what they do to the citizens who pay for their service, only to be recorded and spied on.

Next year, I hope brings a different story to this disaster. Just maybe both house and Senate will be able to make a difference with a Democratic President who will not tolerate this type of nonsense.

Let's Talk: Yup, those telecom executives are in a pretty cushy position. Charge outrageous prices to your customers and then stab them in the back by spying on them -- nice work if you can get it.

Wow...you really got this one wrong. The bill that you are referring to does NOT allow Washington to spy on whomever they please. For starters, the bill is focused on intercepting telecommunications that pass through communications pipelines in America.

In this digital age all communications (emails, phone calls, et cetera) travel through telecom hubs where they are passed to other hubs and finally to the end user. The goal of this bill was to allow our intelligence organizations to tap into these hubs and monitor communications (with a FISA warrant) of foreign nationals as well as some Americans when they were communicating with known terrorists abroad.

It's exactly this kind of misinformation that you are spreading that is making America less safe and, quite frankly, more ignorant. Now I'm an liberal and an ACLU supporter, but your argument is baseless and not supported by fact.

Andrew: The main controversy in this bill is whether the telecom companies should have retroactive immunity against lawsuits. I don't know anybody who has retroactive immunity against any possible lawsuit. Do you? Why should it be any different for large corporations?

And Bush has threatened to veto this bill if it doesn't have that retroactive immunity clause. Obviously this bill isn't as crucial to America's defense as the neocons want everyone to think, or Bush wouldn't veto the bill (or let it expire) without that one clause.

The neocons, with a little help from their "media" lapdogs, are trying to scare Americans into giving the Bush Adm. and the telecom companies everything they ask for, or else the sky will fall. Sorry to see you've fallen for their rhetoric.
