From the Patriot Act to Telecom Immunity

If, in the years since 9/11, you haven't seen the remarkable 1998 movie The Siege, you'll have a queasy feeling when you watch this trailer for the film. We can't say we weren't warned.

Repeal FISA is now a day and a half old. We have nine bloggers with at least one more in the works and have been visited by 499 unique viewers. Other sites have placed us on their links and people are posting about us independently.

Anyone who wants to is welcome to sign up and become a Poster. The purpose of the blog is to organize a drive to repeal the FISA laws and all laws that pardon or give immunity from prosecution anyone who has violated the Constitution during the Bush Administration.

If you have a blog already and you become a poster we will link to your site.

It's discouraging how most, if not all, of the big "unexpected" developments aren't unexpected at all.
The Siege didn't even seem all that revolutionary an idea...just another riff on a theme that had almost become commonplace in movies, books and comics....the powers that be using fear to establish some kind of police state.
The Siege may have been the most specifically accurate....but when it came out, it was almost like, "Ok...ok...I've seen this before."

For all the good that did.....
