Time to Mail 10,000 Copies of the Bill of Rights to the White House

Guess who recently added a signing statement to a postal reform bill granting himself permission to open and read any piece of domestic mail, at any time, without a warrant, without notifying the sender or the recipient, without documenting the fact that the mail has been tampered with?

I'll be happy to give him the opportunity to read a postcard that's actually addressed to him, from me, bearing the following text:

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

And THAT is why I'm a Libertarian and not a Republican.

THAT is why I "waste my vote" on Libertarian candidates in a tight election.

(That's the number of attempts I have made so far go get this fucking post through Blogger.)

And I'm so sorry to hear you are still having problems with your wisdom tooth extraction. Eeek!

I think that if he feels he can open our mail then he should have to pay the bills in our mail too. It only seems fair.
