Why We NEED THE SPECIAL POWERS ACT...

Is it just me or is there some sort of Terroristical Plot when we have
FBI Director Robert Mueller struggled Tuesday to allay congressional concerns about growing management problems at the bureau, including a report of widespread abuse of its power to obtain phone, Internet and financial records without court oversight.

Mueller implored members of the Senate Judiciary Committee not to strip the bureau of its ability to gather evidence through so-called national security letters, which allow the FBI to request information from businesses without a warrant, subpoena or judicial review.

He said the recent abuses, detailed in a report earlier this month by the Justice Department's inspector general, were the result of honest mistakes rather than skullduggery.

NO HONEST, we did not understand that the FBI or the Justice department was now or at any time involved with that law stuff.

our Bad....

But there is this sequence of comedies
Bears, birds and other creatures could be put at greater risk under proposed Bush administration changes to the Endangered Species Act, according to a U.S. government document released on Tuesday by environmentalists.

The proposed rewrite to the landmark law that protects American wildlife would weaken the act so much that about 80 percent of the 1,300 species now on the endangered list would lose protection, said Kieran Suckling of the Center for Biological Diversity.

or the More Comedic Moment at American Pravda:
The Fish and Wildlife Service is considering limiting the ability of federal wildlife protection agencies to intervene on behalf of endangered species that may be harmed by federal actions.

The proposed regulatory changes, some of them detailed in an article on Tuesday by the online magazine Salon.com, would also increase the role of state governments in administering some of the species protections that are now the responsibility of the Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service.

H. Dale Hall, the director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, which administers the Endangered Species Act, said Tuesday that the draft proposal detailing the changes was “really a beginning of a process.”

[ cf Proposed Changes Would Shift Duties in Protecting Species ]
Ah, don't you just love the honesty there....

That whole Bo Jangles Foot Work with the
“really a beginning of a process.”
Where EVER have we seen that piece of Performance Art...

Oh yes, it was with the whole thing about how the Directorate Of State Security was our Bestist Bestist Bestist Friend, and trust us, now that we have promoted Negroponte from Creating Chaos in Iraq to creating chaos on a global scale, well, things are going to be gooderer....

Just Trust Us.... Since, well, Faith is the Hope For Things You KNOW can not be....

Gosh, what if they decide to put the rest of the Americans who are not Christianists on the Endangered Species, and they figure that this is another issue that should not be dealt with by anyone in the federal government, since the Christianists Terrorists know good and well what it takes to irradicate and infestation....

Are YOU still Feeling Safe???

If YES, please remember to pass to the right....
