Not that I want to take up arms or anything, but it’s getting desperate. Thanks to David, who’s been blogging up a storm about these things.
Someone remind me. Aside from the resolution about Iraq, have we officially declared war on anyone? I mean we’ve been in some kind of vague war since I can remember–war on drugs, war on poverty, war on crime, now war on terrorism. And maybe we’re in an age where we don’t wage war on a specific country, but you can’t use this vague war to excuse spying on your own people or spying on organizations that are using their first amendment rights.
I think what creeps me out most about the whole thing is the vigorous defense by the administration. Methinks they doth protest too much.
