Nanny State

The loony, moonbat, ultra-liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals predictably handed out rough treatment of the Justice Department yesterday.

At issue is whether lawsuits against the Federal Government and AT&T over warrantless wiretapping can indeed go forward. The Justice Department says that to let the suits proceed would put the nation in danger. They have also argued, essentially, that everyone should just take the government's word for it that nothing illegal has happened, nothing illegal is happening and nothing illegal will happen.

How quaint. For the record, this flaming liberal has never given complete trust to any level of any government and never will. In fact, one would be hard-pressed to find a liberal anywhere that would claim the level of trust in government for which the Justice Department is asking. Liberals simply believe that government can be effective at taking care of certain things. We're certainly not the ones who think the government should be able to listen in on everyone's conversations no matter what, or what behaviors are acceptable in people's bedrooms.

Of the two broadly defined political perspectives in this country, one is radically changing its rhetoric and actions. If I belonged to that perspective, I'd be pretty ticked off.
