Off to Burning Man!

That's right guys, I'm off to burn the man next week. Assuming I'm not attacked by an angry mob for doing so, I will post pictures of the event to my flickr page when I get back.

Yay for camping in the desert....

President Bush on the Patriot Act:
"The legislation strengthens the Justice Department so it can better detect and disrupt terrorist threats."
- President George W. Bush
March 9, 2006

Apparently, the term terrorists now applies to ....Cock-Fighters.... as the FBI is now using "Sneak-and-Peak" warrants (we can search your property in secret without serving you warrant) to investigate people who kill Chickens for fun and profit.

Acting under the authority of the Patriot Act, the agents had obtained
a search warrant that allowed them to clandestinely enter the property,
search for evidence and not tell anyone about it until the government
or a judge was ready to let the owners know they’d been there.

As if we needed another reminder that the Federal government cannot be trusted to protect our civil liberties.
Restraint is not a concept the FBI, CIA, NSA, or any alphabet group seems to understand.

I've had it.

When the Democratic congress was elected I had some hope that they would restore sanity to the police state this country is becoming. I was wrong. Those bunch of worthless assholes have just signed away the 4th amendment to the constitution. The Bush administration can now, with the blessing of the congress, wiretap American communications into and out of the country without a warrant.
From the ACLU:
“That a Democratically-controlled Senate would be strong-armed by the Bush administration is astonishing. This Congress may prove to be as spineless in standing up to the Bush Administration as the one that enacted the Patriot Act or the Military Commissions Act.”
Every Senator from California, if they voted for it, just lost my support. In fact, I'll donate money to whoever runs against them next time they're up for election. Of would help if they would tell us who the hell voted for it.
While the House of Representatives' website gives details of how each member voted, the Senate website just displays the message "Results of roll call votes are published here approximately an hour after they have been announced." even though the vote took place more than two days ago.
This is un-fucking-believable. Write your senators and representatives. Ask them why the Constitution isn't important anymore.....

What kind of country is ours?

What kind of country do we live in where these things are written?

In case my assets, which are few, get seized and my hard drive gets
robbed under Bush's new executive order of July 17, 2007, I want you to
know my name so that I am not disappeared. I have a 6-year-old son to
raise, and, like so many intelligent, passionate peace activists, the
world needs me to be a leader in ending my country's imperial addiction
to warfare
