It’s really crappy decision week at the Supreme Court.
First up on the list, FISA. FISA stands for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. It’s the ultra-secret act that our wonderful government uses to spy on Americans suspected of being bad guys. The Court ruled earlier this week that it is impossible to bring a suit against the Federal Government unless you can prove they are spying on you.
“How are you supposed to prove that a super secret federal program is spying on you”, you ask? What a great question! I’m pretty sure the answer is, “you aren’t”. So with this final hurdle, the Supreme Court has now given the Federal Government carte blanche to spy on its citizens.
The Legislative Branch wiped its ass with the 4th Amendment in 2001, 2007, and 2008 when they passed the bills. George W. Bush wiped his ass with the 4th Amendment when he signed each bill into law. Barack Obama wiped his ass with the 4th Amendment when his administration defended the Act in the courts. And now the Supreme Court has finally wiped its ass with the 4th Amendment and flushed it down the toilet.
God bless America.
