The 4th Amendment is Dead

Long live the 4th Amendment.

Sometimes I do not cover things because those stories are covered at great length in many other spots, several of which are linked to from here. However, sometimes things are too important to not mention. Today, the US Senate, mainly republicans (who were in charge when 9/11 happened, thank you), voted to gut the US Constitution. As others have pointed out, Bush said Bin Laden (still out there) hated our freedoms (even though that's not what Bin Laden talks about), so Bush is taking away our freedoms in order to make use safer (nice plan!).

The 4th Amendment is the latest victim, along with all of us.
