I do not know how many of you have been keeping up with the new FISA bill and its provision to provide 'retroactive immunity' to the telco companies, who have already broken the law while in league with the Bush Administration. But, it was getting very close to passing. However, Senator Chris Dodd vowed to filibuster the bill and he was good to his word. Just a few minutes ago, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reed tabled the bill. This may be the biggest victory we have had to date against the WH. The current bill would have allowed them to cover up their tracks, and we would have been hard-pressed to learn the truth. This would have prevented the courts from having any jurisdiction in what will surely be unparalleled illegal spying on American citizens, and violations of their civil rights. ...... you cant get around the fact that this is what REAL, American leadership looks like ..... Of all the candidates, there are two that really stand out in my mind. One is Chris Dodd and the other is Joe Biden. Virtually every single day, I am reading, listening and watching what the candidates are saying, doing, how they are voting, etc. It seems to me that Dodd and Biden are 'a cut above'. Yet, they are being largely ignored. So, I have started asking people why. So, I will ask you; why do you not support them? I am really curious. Dodd just stopped in the middle of the campaign trail and came back to fulfill this promise to the American people. Biden is jumping back and forth to DC for his Senate investigations. These are the guys who are doing what we hoped for last January. Anyway, I would be very interested to hear some other peoples thoughts.
