Apparently the FBI wants to be able to more easily wiretap our data transmitions AND make us pay for that privalege through higher user fees. Yay. You know, it's sometimes hard to remember that we once not only lived in a democracy but in a democracy where people's rights and freedoms actually mattered. That was a short lived time period anyway, I guess. Al Qaeda isn't the biggest threat to American Freedom as long as Ashcroft is still in power.
On a related note I never got an opportunity to use my joke about the bombings in Spain. I wanted to say "I don't think it was ETA or Al Qaeda, I think it may have been the Spanish Inquisition." And then the person I was talking to would say "I don't expect it to end up being them." And then...FUN!!
I still have a headache and don't feel great but I think I'm pulling around.
