Democratic Capitulation? Say It Ain’t So!

So is anyone the least bit shocked that the Democrats, after a year of “tough” rhetoric on FISA and wiretapping, give in and bent over with their gaping assholes and took it with stride?

NOT ME.

Of course, what I’m referring to is the fact that today, the Senate passed the FISA bill, complete with retroactive legal immunity for the telecomms.

This fucking disgusts me, but am I surprised? Hell no! Not after years of seeing the Democrats fold over and over again to their opponents after spewing public rhetoric that make them sound like they have a pair of balls. From triangulation to this, the Democrats have demonstrated, time after time, that they lack fucking testicular fortitude to stand up for one goddamn fucking time. Just once, that’s all I’m asking here.

And what pisses me off even more is the Democratic leadership’s public insistence that this final bill represents a hard-won political bargain because it made FISA the only vehicle for surveillance. Well that’s missing the forest for the trees isn’t it: what fucking good is that going to do if the courts do not have meaningful oversight powers into how private companies are helping the Administration?

And don’t even get me started on Obama’s change of position. Let’s not even go there, or at least, not in this post.

    The vote just proves that America is a one political system.

    Having said that, Canada, my country is going down the same road. Policy you would expect the other parties to fight tooth and nail-nothing.

    Our govt. just signed an agreement that allows the American Military to cross our border to put down civilian dissent.

    One Party- One County- One World

    Or.as George Carlin said “Choice-You have no choice.

    Or, as I said ” As went the Jews – so do we follow”.

    Will we fight back or will we get on the train quietly?

    Enjoy the day-we live very interesting times.
