It can all come crumpling down...

First we have the attack on the Rights to Freedom of Speech and Privacy but a federal judge will go ahead with hearings in a legal challenge to a warrantless domestic surveillance program run by the National Security Agency.

U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor also criticized the Justice Department for failing to respond to the legal challenge.

The NSA and the Justice Department declined immediate comment. The Bush administration has said that hearings would reveal state secrets that affect national security.

Secondly, the lack of concern by Conservatives on Mine Safety:

– Require the Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration to randomly check self-rescuer devices upon which miners’ lives depend in an emergency to ensure they are in working order;

– Provide that the air stored underground for trapped miners under the Senate legislation last for a minimum of 48 hours through a chamber or cache; and

– Provide that communication and tracking devices required under the Senate legislation be required in 15 months rather than the 3 years specified.

Theae are the 3 amendments that Rep. George Miller (D-CA) wants inserted into the bill that would strengthen workplace safety for miners. However Conservatives opposed these mine amendments. The Conservatives are being irresponsible, totally unreasonable and simply are choosing to delay the passing of the bill by opposing these amendments. It takes a very unhumanistic person who has no regard for mankind to oppose Mine Safety.

And lastly, but not new to us is the attack on Gay and Lesbian Rights with President Bush promoting a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage on Monday. Tuesday the Senate is scheduled to vote on the cause that is dear to his conservative backers.
The good news is that it stands little chance of passing the 100-member Senate. Several Republicans oppose the measure, and so far only one Democrat — Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska — says he will vote for it.

Bush has lost support among conservatives who blame the White House and Congress for runaway government spending, illegal immigration and lack of action on social issues such as the gay marriage amendment.
What sad times this country has come upon when our own government wants to take away all these rights. Imagine being a gay miner making a phone call?

These are the wedge issues being layed out by the Bush Administration, but they do not have the strong hold they once enjoyed. We find that Bush is now officially the WORST PRESIDENT EVER.

With just one little nudge by a Democrat with a backbone, the whole administration could come tumbling down. Run the gauntlet Democrats!!
