Warrants No Longer Needed

In a recent signing statement, Bush gave the US Government the authority to open and read your mail without a warrant.

WASHINGTON - President Bush has quietly claimed sweeping new powers to open Americans' mail without a judge's warrant, the Daily News has learned.

The President asserted his new authority when he signed a postal reform bill into law on Dec. 20. Bush then issued a "signing statement" that declared his right to open people's mail under emergency conditions.

That claim is contrary to existing law and contradicted the bill he had just signed, say experts who have reviewed it.

The Bush family is kaput. There'll never be another Bush in the White House. The new socialist government will be opening Dubya's mail instead. Big Brother will be watching all the greedy old buzzards soon enough.
