Against the ACLU: What You Can Do


You've no doubt heard that, today, the ACLU--and assorted other enemies of America--filed a lawsuit against the government for NSA "spying" (interesting that there was no such lawsuit when Bill Clinton was doing the same thing--Remember "Echelon" and "Carnivore"?).

Since the lawsuit was filed in U.S. Federal Court in the Eastern District of Michigan, where I practice, I've already been contacted by concerned U.S. citizens who wish to intervene in the case as interested parties (whose interests and welfare are affected by this case) in support of the government's activities. And we may do so. You may feel free to contact me regarding this if you are interested in adding your name.

Her contact page is here. And yes, I did.

After 9/11, the rant from the left was "Why didn't they connect the dots?" You can't connect dots unless you can find them! Simple as that.

But, you can't find the dots if you aren't allowed to look. We seem to have a sizable population of folks determined to see this nation humbled by the most venal barbarians in history.

As a venal barbarian I can only say to our intelligence community 'get a warrant & obey the law'.

Oh Artie?

Having a little problem with reading, are you? I can recommend a Sylvan Learning Center in your area if you need help.

If you had bothered to examine Benning's sentence structure more carefully you would know that the reference to venal barbarians was to the al Qaeda terrorists - not to those on your side who are making all the noise.

Like grandpa always said, "empty wagons make the most noise."

Of course, if you want to include yourself with those barbarians who are al Qaeda, we can deal with that separately.

As for your favorite 'get a warrant & obey the law' phrase, it is obvious that you have yet to read FISA in its entirety.

Your credibility remains at ZERO!!!!

The FISA/eavesdropping thing isn't the slam dunk you want it to be for the administration. Like many promenient conservatives (Paul Weyrich, Grover Norquist) who I disagree with on almost everything I'm all for a hearing or two to clear this up once and for all.

And thanks for the tip about Sylvan.

Planning to sign up are you?

I don't have the reading comprehension problem, Artie. You do! Didn't address that, did you, Artie?

I was merely adopting the label this crowd at CY feels comfortable with describing those of us a little to the left.

"... ACLU--and assorted other enemies of America...?

Enemies of America.

Rhetorical engines overheating?

Better than running on empty, like you, Fat Bastard.

Posted by: Retired Spy at January 21, 2006 01:41 PM

Spy, you have a brilliant, razor-sharp wit.

Why don't you bring it along sometime?

Oh, and by the way-- finish that logic class yet?

Posted by: Fat Bastard at January 21, 2006 07:23 PM

Hmmmm. I guess you are not running totally on empty. You still have all sorts of hot air to keep the balloon aloft - and changing political winds from the Left to propel you into oblivion with the rest of your pathetic ilk.

Posted by: Retired Spy at January 22, 2006 08:07 AM

It appears that Fat Bastard is just another one-trick pony. He dwells on unimportant things like educational achievement and logic lessons for others in an effort to cover up his own inadequacies.

Sorry, Fat Bastard. Your inadequacies are, like you, too large to cover up.

Posted by: Moshe at January 22, 2006 10:33 AM

Hey, Moshe-- I'm not the one who brought up Spy's PhD!

Be brought that to the party, and I reserve the right to cudgel him with it.

Posted by: Fat Bastard at January 22, 2006 11:59 AM

Oh, and thank you, Spy, for avoiding the "enemies of America" bit.

I just want to be sure of how you folks view people with whom you disagree.

Thanks, folks, and keep those cards and letters coming in!

Posted by: Fat Bastard at January 22, 2006 12:10 PM

I did not avoid anything, FB.

Just in case you were not paying attention, I am not the one who commented on "... ACLU--and assorted other enemies of America..." thing you quoted.

Check your facts and attributions a bit more carefully, please.

Posted by: Retired Spy at January 22, 2006 12:54 PM


Wow. There it is. My comment regarding Enemies of America and the overheat of rhetorical engines.

Your immediate reply that it was "better than running on empty."

But now you say you never commented on it?

Welllll.... okay, have it your way. You never commented on it.

Posted by: Fat Bastard at January 22, 2006 04:22 PM

I was just referring to YOUR engines running on empty. That pertains to almost everything you have written here, FB.

You were the one who posted something about the rhetorical engines overheating. Your engines are running non-stop, but ya can't go too far when the transmission is in neutral, FB.

As I noted, too, it appears that you're running in large part on hot air.

Hot air and a transmission in neutral gear?

No wonder you can only convince Artie and the KOS Kiddies of your wisdom. The rest of us know better.
