Just askin, cuz:
Obama's regime has announced it supports renewal of three crucially intrusive, anti-Constitutional provisions of the Bushevik bullshit, according to the NY Times:
The Obama administration supports extending three provisions of the USA Patriot Act that are scheduled to expire at the end of the year, the Justice Department told Congress.I just want to thank all of you who voted for "change." Cuz he's changed, fer sher: changed his mind, again.
The provisions give the government the authority to access business records, operate roving wiretaps and conduct surveillance on “lone wolf” suspects with no known link to foreign governments or terrorist groups.
Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich said the administration was willing to consider stronger civil rights protections in the law “provided that they do not undermine the effectiveness” of the three provisions.
Here's another shit-encrusted stick in the eye of the "hopey/changey" crowd, cuz Candidate Barry O said he was "open" to repealing the most odious parts of that egregious act of anti-democracic, unconstitutional surveillance railroaded through the Congress in just three days just over 8 years ago.
And I can hardly wait to hear the choruses of explanations about how this isn't really what it seems to be: Bushevism 3.0.
I still do not know how people who voted for Obama can imagine that someone who was so desperate for the approval of and so indebted to the Ownership class would EVER turn on the hands that cosseted and curried and carried him to his present power and prominence.
