AT&T and the NSA teaming up to protect the country from it's citizens.

It seems that AT&T turned the works over to the federal government to monitor our phone calls and internet activity. Apparently Bush considers us all potential terrorists.

Let's see, business and government teaming up, I believe that's point number nine of the 14 Points of Fascism.

"9.) Corporate Power is Protected: The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite."

"George Bush and the 14 Points of Fascism" brought to you by the good folks at Project for the Old American Century. A great place to stay informed.

An AT&T whistleblower gives us an inside look at how AT&T helps Bush spy on

AT&T provided National Security Agency eavesdroppers with full access
its customers' phone calls, and shunted its customers' internet traffic to
data-mining equipment installed in a secret room in its San Francisco
center, according to a former AT&T worker cooperating in the
Frontier Foundation's lawsuit against the company.

Klein, a retired AT&T communications technician, submitted an
in support of the EFF's lawsuit this week. That class action
lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Francisco last January, alleges that
AT&T violated federal and state laws by surreptitiously allowing the
government to monitor phone and internet communications of AT&T
without warrants.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
