Spying on citizens

I cannot understand how it can be countenanced that Bush is simply going to continue listening in on whoever he wants to without a court order.

What do I mean when I say that “I cannot understand?”

I mean it makes me really, really angry. How angry? Well, here’s RudePundit’s take on last Saturday’s radio address, and it pretty much says it all as far as I’m concerned.

And what do I mean when I say that it “can be countenanced?”

I mean that if being a citizen is something that one takes seriously, then defiant lawbreaking on the part of a president cannot be allowed to pass without action, and if no action is forthcoming from our representatives, then a citizen just has to take action her/himself.
