    It's obvious the ACLU went judge shopping on this one.

    Don't worry, trounced. I'm sure this one's headed to SCOTUS.

    I dare say this case was so damn obvious that you couldn't find one who wouldn't have ruled exactly the same way.

    I'm a retard because I have an opinion that differs from your opinion? The plaintiffs should have had no standing in this case. The sixth will overturn this in a heartbeat.

    You're a retard because, well, not to put too fine a point on it, but because you're a retard. Has nothing to do with differing opinion.

    My reply aped the substance of your original comment, oh esteemed legal scholar.

    But they ruled against him in the Gitmo case - said he'd gone too far.

    This could get good...

    Yes, heaven forbid we didn't turn over all of our rights to a nebulous war on a concept.

    I mean, the War on Drugs has been going so well...

    What makes this all the more ridiculous is that Bush could get his law making the program legal.

    He insists on stamping his foot on the gorund and claiming the program is legal because he says so.

    I hate this stupid black-and-white line that's been drawn on everything.

    Either you're behind the president and the White House's every move, or you're for the terrorists.

    It's absolutely idiotic and more than a little dishonest. Obtaining a warrant in order to listen to private phone conversations in this country is one of the basic rules of law enforcement. It's a step that ensures our privacy, our rights and that our government never oversteps its bounds and becomes bigger than the people it's supposed to serve and protect.

    There have been many an adjustment to this law to make it easy, especially in terrorism cases, for agencies to obtain these warrants. The burden of proof on the agencies is, at this point, miniscule. FOLLOW THE DAMN LAW.

    And how anyone could place so much trust in the government that they're willing to hand over these basic rights is astonishing. This, might I remind you, is the same group of dipshits who mistakenly INVADED A COUNTRY. And you're willing to turn over your lives and rights and trust that these people will do the right thing? Damn.

    One question, dog: Are you with Hezebollah or Al-Qeda?
