...the phone companies are so committed to helping the Bush Administration defeat the enemies of freedom that they would only cut off illegal wiretaps if the bills weren't paid, not because they were, uh, illegal.
I'd heard this shit before, but I played right into the Dubster's hands, because I laughed. I mean here His Fuckheadness is trying to sell this idea of everybody getting behind the cause of defeating dem dar terrists, while... sheeyit.
So he's hoodwinked them into breaking the law for free, and they've had efuckinnuff. Pay up, fucker.
If you don't pay, we'll fess up in court and than see where your ass is at, eh?
"What the Amer'can people need to unnerstand is that this is too hard for them to unnerstand, and if we tried to explain it, the terrists will find out how to kill all your famlies."
In at least one case, a wiretap used in a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act investigation ''was halted due to untimely payment,'' the audit found. FISA wiretaps are used in the government's most sensitive and secretive criminal and intelligence investigations, and allow eavesdropping on suspected terrorists or spies.
''We also found that late payments have resulted in telecommunications carriers actually disconnecting phone lines established to deliver surveillance results to the FBI, resulting in lost evidence,'' according to the audit by Inspector General Glenn A. Fine.
True patriots, eh? When duty called, when September 11 happened (oh, wait, actually before September 11 happened), these brave footsoldiers in the trash-the-Constitution movement were more than willing to charge the government millions. Of course, the fact that the Administration let these kinds of bills go unpaid is ridiculous, too, but nobody's really covered in glory here. Especially when these are the same phone companies who want full amnesty for this lawbreaking, and the Administration has made it their top priority to deliver it to them.
I stole that from here, and if that isn't enough, swipe some terms and google.
I know the guy's pure slime, even dressed in a tux on his best day, but... he's married to the chain smoking Laura Bot. I'm heartless like he is. If he's that desperate for porn, he doesn't need the NSA, I'll forward him my "Favorites."
And I won't need immunity, cuzz I don't do kiddie porn.
Now he doesn't want it. Oh well.
