When do things start getting better again?

If you're reading this, you're probably already on John Ashcroft's 'list'
"The legal system itself is being rigged to condone whatever foregone conclusion the Bush administration desires."

The subjects of searches don't have to be terrorists, or even foreigners. To secure a warrant, the government only has to make the case - to a secret court - that individuals may be tied to terrorist activity and, therefore, should be subject to surveillance. Virtually no American is safe from undue prying.

Prosecutors will now be able to manufacture a case against an individual out of circumstantial evidence that would normally not be admissible, such as wiretaps and secret searches. Probable cause for arrest becomes whatever prosecutors want it to be. - Daytona News-Journal.
