Today's Cartoon: NSA Wiretapping and Snakes on a Plane

It looks like those darn "activist judges" are at it again! First, they try to legalize same-sex marriage and then when that didn't work, they order the Government to end it's "illegal" domestic wiretapping program, just so the Gay community can wed in secret ;)

The way I see it, it's kind of difficult to know for certain if the Bush Administration's "Terrorist Surveillance Program" is actually "unconstitutional", simply because it is SO secretive that nobody seems to know exactly how the information collected is being used (or abused). I mean, just because President Bush gave the NSA complete authorization to secretly spy on Americans phone calls and emails without warrants doesn't necessarily mean that they are, right? ;)

The US Government claims that their domestic eavesdropping program is an essential tool in their ongoing "War on Terror", but nobody knows if that's true or not because nobody ever gets to see the evidence. So, if the White House is going to use the program to credit for things that they don't have to prove, then why not just go ahead and use it to take credit for absolutely EVERYTHING?

While they're at it, they should probably change the name of their "Terrorist Surveillance Program" to something a little less invasive (and insulting) to Americans; something that would imply its absolute effectiveness, yet in a non-threatening way. Might I suggest "Spidey Sense"? ;)
