No Right to Privacy in USA (Cont.)
JUST A TINY REMINDER in case you forgot: the government is spying on you. And no law exists in the US that gives you rights otherwise. You don't even have the right to challenge those who are—right now—going through your mail and email and listening to and recording your phone calls.
CINCINNATI - A federal appeals court on Friday ordered the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging President Bush's domestic spying program, saying the plaintiffs had no standing to sue.
The 2-1 ruling by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel was not on the legality of the surveillance program. But it vacated an order by a lower court in Detroit last Augist [sic] that the post-911 warrantless surveillance aimed at uncovering terrorist activity was unconstitutional, violating rights to privacy and free speech and the separation of powers.
Just when justice tried to finally get a glimpse of our doings. Oh well. Happy (belated) Fourth of July!
