So, apparently Dick Cheney was on with Rush Limbaugh the other day. And
apparently he said things like, "People who don't want to -- I guess want to
leave open the possibility that the trial lawyers can go after a big
company that may have helped
. Those companies helped specifically at our
request, and they've done yeoman duty for the country, and this is the
so-called terrorist surveillance program, one of the things it was called
earlier. ... We haven't violated anybody's civil liberties. It's in
fact a good piece of legislation." (Emphasis mine.)

To that I simply have this to offer: if there have been no civil liberties
violated, then why do we need retroactive immunity to criminal prosecution?
If no wrong has been done, then why are you afraid of being charged in
court?

"Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway scoffed at the news, but there are
no plans for to protest
the City Council's decisions."

This just amused me. Article Here, about
Berkeley, CA, telling the Marines to remove their recruiting station from
the town.
