Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Deeper Down the Hole

I wonder if there is anybody in America who doesn't comprehend yet why it is that the phone companies need immunity from the law with reference to the Bush spy programs. I mean by that that it seems obvious to me that these phone companies wouldn't need immunity unless they were breaking laws.
What laws are they breaking, you may ask?
Isn't it obvious? They are allowing the US government to spy on you and me without probable cause. They are setting up monitoring equipment that can intercept everything we do on the phone lines, every Internet connection, every phone call, every word recorded, computer-scanned, and memorized for posterity.
The argument we give to justify this is that we are such good citizens that we would never have anything to fear from being monitored this way. I've heard that from my own right-thinking relatives.
But guess what.....
It's illegal and we all perfectly well know it. It's unconstitutional.
Who cares about the Constitution, you ask?
We hope someone does this coming November when We the People get to speak our minds.
