LP Monday Message: On civil liberties, Obama is worse than Bush

August 2, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Last week it was reported that the Obama Administration wants to give the FBI power to force internet companies to reveal information about their users' internet activities: things like who they send email to, times and dates of emails, and maybe also information about their web browser activity.

Even worse, they want the FBI to be able to demand this information without a warrant!

How the city politicians of Bell, CA conned the low income taxpayers to unwittingly pay for their huge salaries

"The outrageous story of the hapless city of Bell, California is now widely known across the nation.  A group of city politicians led by City Manager Rizzo allegedly colluded to pay themselves obscene salaries in a poor city of under 40,000 residents.

The War in Afghanistan has dragged on for almost nine years. According to the Washington Post, there have been 1,189 American military deaths, which is more than two per week.
