Kudos to Qwest and Toss the bushies Out on Their Asses

They have no respect for you, your privacy or your freedom. Yet it is the protection of these things, your life, your liberty, your pursuit of happiness that supposedly justifies government.

Governments, as history shows, are not always not frequently good and they can get much worse. For instance, most probably acknowledge that stalinist russia, to use a technical term, sucked.

The ongoing parade of bush administration bad acts seems as if it will never end....why, look no further than the next edition of USA Today for the latest:

The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.
Just go read the rest...

Will we see warrants and probable cause? Nope, likely just the executive order telling folks to break the law, to violate the 4th Amendment. This government need to be eliminated and the companies that are supporting these immoral and unconstitutional programs need to be reorganized, i.e., if there is anything left after they pay the maximum fine/restitution to each individual whose privacy has been compromised.

No matter your political persuasion you should be angry, upset and willing to toss the bastards out because of this type of behavior. It might not be your gang that is using these tools in a few years.

And, yes, kudos to Qwest for saying no!
