For years right-wing legal scholars have proclaimed there was no “right to privacy” as enumerated by the Warren Court beginning in Griswold v. Connecticut.

Over the years the jurisprudence has come to support the findings of the Warren Court about fifty years ago.

Of course, it turns out the government has been making this argument all very irrelevant.

German outrage over a U.S. Internet spying program has broken out ahead of a visit by Barack Obama, with ministers demanding the president provide a full explanation when he lands in Berlin next week and one official likening the tactics to those of the East German Stasi.

You know it’s bad when the Germans start comparing your present to their past.

Former NSA Official Thomas Drake said in an interview that the present NSA data mining makes the Stasi seem quaint. Which is a phrase you don’t see applied to the East German Secret Police very often.



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
