Happening Now...

Tune in to C-Span 2 (Channel 41 for Wyandotte Cable viewers) to watch the Senate debate on S 2248, the bill that deals with warrantless wiretapping and gives the telephone companies retroactive immunity for helping the bush administration illegally spy on you. Senator Chris Dodd has pledged to filibuster the bill if it includes such immunity. Use the tool below to keep track of the votes and contact your Senators. I've already contacted Senators Stabenow and Levin to request that they join the filibuster, and I plan to call Leader Reid's office as well.

I've heard it said many times in Democratic and liberal circles, and even from principled conservatives, that bushco is shredding the Constitution. I've come to believe that it's more like they've poked hole after hole in it. Outright shredding would be too obvious. They think we won't notice if they randomly, brutally, pierce away at our freedoms, just a little at a time, until there is nothing left. Let it not be said that we remained silent. Call your Senators and tell them we're watching this closely. We have noticed, and what we have seen is not acceptable. Make the call.
