United Police States of America

It's not enough that the Bush administration is spying on Americans and collecting our phone records and other personal facts without judicial oversight.

That apparently just doesn't do enough damage to our so-called rights.

So, to take it a step further, Bush's buddies on the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that police no longer have to knock before busting down your door and searching your home. [Read story.]

What's next? The end of the presumption of innocence until proven guilty? Oh, wait, that's already gone, as evidenced by the hundreds of detainees in the "war on terror" who are being held arbitrarily and indefinitely and without due process.

The Constitution was really good while it lasted.

God bless America.
