Warrantless wiretapping? - Don't sue the feds. Sue the telcos!
This is smart, smart, smart because unlike the ACLU's suit against the federal government, this will hit right where it hurts, in the pocketbook of a huge Republican corporate donor. Though Bu$hCo will almost certainly try to quash this suit using the state secrets privilege, the negative publicity coupled with the specter of damages in the billions (with a capital "B"), will force the telco to pressure the administration to end the surveillance. AT&T will scream, and Bush will listen.
So now the question is: What about Verizon, Quest, and BellSouth?
Are you serious?!? Have you ever TRIED to get their customer service people to answer the phone?!?
Didn't the President ask us last night that it's irresponsible to question the past? Let's just move on America!
Besides lawsuits are frivolous!
Killing all the Lawyers,
Rex is a delight. Always there to keep us on the straight, narrow, and patriotic. ;-)
BTW, I see you've had a gender change. Woman trapped in a man's body?
As long as there are barristers there will be lawsuits..by the suits againsts the suits.
Just give me a few good ol fashioned sit-ins..
but then....its not PC to do that anymore I guess.
I used the SOTU as an opportunity to play a drinking game..each time the Repubes stood up..we did a half shot of B and B..when both sides applauded and gave that jackass a standing "O" we did a whole shot..kept me from shooting the TV..in the memory of Elvis of course...
I think that is the real answer to all this crap.
Also, in response to Dusty, we should have sit-ins. Sit-ins may be illegal soon, so let's have them while we still can! Same with name-calling... it may even become illegal to say things critical of Dumbya.
Let's not let that happen. Let's kick him out of the White House and keep him from repealing the 22nd amendment.
