Republicans Want Terror Law Made Permanent
By ERIC LICHTBLAU - NYTIMES

WASHINGTON, April 8 — Working with the Bush administration, Congressional Republicans are maneuvering to make permanent the sweeping antiterrorism powers granted to federal law enforcement agents after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, officials said today...
...The landmark legislation expanded the government's power to use eavesdropping, surveillance, access to financial and computer records and other tools to track terrorist suspects.


 

PluggedIn: Radio tags may track shirts, razors and shoppers
Forbes - By Andy Sullivan-4-9-03
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Do you know what your underwear is saying about you?
Tiny wireless transmitters promise to link tires, razors and other everyday items to the Internet, creating a world where money actually talks and the walls really do have ears.

Add-ons Stall Terror Bill
Newsday - 4 -9-03
Hatch wants to eliminate the law's Dec. 31, 2005, expiration date, a move that some civil liberties groups contend would embolden the Justice Department in its use of the sweeping anti-terror law

 Today's cartoon was inspired by the continuing republican attacks on our civil liberties. Just think, the next time you fly out of the United States, the federal agent at the airport can look up your financial records and also your medical records for any reason.  Gee, I hope that check I bounced 3 years ago and the fact that my Arab doctor wears a turban won't raise any red flags.

Away from the war, well, Rome is burning
St. Petersburg Times, FL - 4-9-03

-- the pollution-reduction goals for our Everglades? What is that, a joke? ...

 

 

Jeb Bush will protect the Florida Everglades exactly the same way he protected the Florida Voters.

US MILITARY KILLS
SADDAM AGAIN!

THE LATE IRAQI DICTATOR SADDAM HUSSEIN (HOLDING SWORD) HAS BEEN SLAIN FOUR TIMES SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WAR
Political Satire by David Podvin


REUTERS The United States military announced on Tuesday that precision-launched “smart bombs” have once again killed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, this time while he was dining in a kosher delicatessen on Baghdad’s fashionable Upper East Side.
Hussein was originally slain on the opening night of the war when, acting as a result of impeccable intelligence data, the Air Force launched a surprise attack on a downtown biker bar where the dictator was meeting with two of his sons, Marvin and Jeb. He was subsequently re-killed when a bunker-busting bomb leveled his time-share condo on the southern outskirts of Basra. The Iraqi strongman also perished when he drowned in the Tigris River because Special Operations forces had deceived him into believing that it was alright to go swimming without waiting at least thirty minutes after eating snacks.
“We had warned Saddam that, unless he surrendered unconditionally, we were going to kill him again,” a triumphant General Tommy Franks declared. “And I cannot emphasize strongly enough that we will continue to kill him until either he stays dead or we just get frustrated and give up.”

Lisa - I got this from a friend - if you haven't seen it I thought you would appreciate it!

The Whos down in Whoville liked this country a lot,
    But the Grinch in the White House most certainly did not.
    He didn't arrive there by the will of the Whos,
    But stole the election that he really did lose.
