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.
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!”
