Keep Diggin'

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.

If he wants to open my sewage and water bill - so be it. It's about the only snail mail I get that isn't a Pottery Barn catalouge.

Thanks to Ashcroft - I'm just assuming I get anything electronically.

The bunch of assholes!
