H.R.6304 don cazayoux is a SELL OUT

louisiana's latest sorry excuse for a democrat don cazayoux

see it doesnt matter if you vote for a democrat or a republican they are the same thing. when are people ever going to realize this? stop being suckers and quit voting for democrats and republicans. congressman jefferson, as usual, was the only louisiana congressman who voted against the fisa bill and we will certainly remember him and do thank him for that.

meanwhile, ryan over at the daily kingfish has an open letter to senator katrina mary landrieu snellings about the senate's upcoming fisa vote. while we appreciate ryan's letter, the fact is that katrina mary landrieu snellings has been one of the biggest bush whores and thugs on the hill and her ass needs to go too. with all of the corruption katrina mary landrieu snellings has been linked to shes probably being blackmailed and if thats the case then what good is she to us anyway?

don cazayoux needs to be thrown out on his ear this fall and maybe he really is a "couillion" like louisiana conservative insists. rodney alexander, charles boustany, charlie melancon and steve scalise need to go as well. they are all traitors.

H.R. 6304 is a bill to rewrite the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA, PL95-511) would almost certainly lead to the dismissal of lawsuits against telecommunications companies accused of aiding the Bush administration’s warrantless surveillance program. In the House, the measure passed with the support of 105 Democrats and 188 Republicans.
If the Senate clears the bill, it will give Bush much of what he wants in terms of spying powers and protection for the telecommunications companies
House members who voted against the bill said its expansion of the president’s surveillance powers would gut Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.
Under the bill, a federal district court would rule that all existing lawsuits against third parties that assisted Bush’s warrantless surveillance program would be waived if there was “substantial evidence” they received written assurances that the program was legal and authorized by the president. A Senate Intelligence Committee report on an earlier version of the legislation detailed how the companies had received such assurances from the Justice Department and the White House. Aides and lawmakers consider the court’s dismissal of the lawsuits a virtual certainty. ~ read more
