Think again. Specifically mentions tracking peace activists. War doesn't like peace?

EFF and ACLU Planning to Appeal Dismissal of Dozens of Spying Cases

A federal judge today dismissed dozens of lawsuits over illegal domestic surveillance of American citizens, ruling that telecommunications companies had immunity from liability under the controversial FISA Amendments Act (FISAAA). The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) California and Illinois affiliates are planning to appeal the decision to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing that FISAAA is unconstitutional.

"We're deeply disappointed in Judge Walker's ruling today," said EFF Legal Director Cindy Cohn. "The retroactive immunity law unconstitutionally takes away Americans' claims arising out of the First and Fourth Amendments, violates the federal government's separation of powers as established in the Constitution, and robs innocent telecom customers of their rights without due process of law."

Signed by President Bush in 2008, the FISAAA allowed for the dismissal of the lawsuits over the telecoms' participation in the warrantless surveillance program if the government secretly certifies to the court that the surveillance did not occur, was legal, or was authorized by the president. Then-Attorney General Michael Mukasey filed that classified certification with the court in September and demanded that the cases be dismissed.

NSA spies on everyone:

http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Whistlebl ... _0121.html

Spying is what intelligence agencies do. I'll bet the US does more spying than anyone based on expenditures....and the amount of people employed by our 16 major agencies.

One of my suppliers was shot and killed, by a police sniper,in front of his home earlier this year. He had "barricaded himself inside his home" according to the police. Sure are a lot of police coming to and into homes and shooting people and dogs.

2009 is 1984.

If the shit hits the fan....which is possible....and the government fails....some folks may have certain memories of cops and agents and judges and political leaders. Cops and agents may then become the most effective terrorists...in the absence of law and order. I believe this is what happened after the USSR fell? The KGB became the national mafia and effectively ruled the country?
