U.S. Government Tracking Your Mail Without Probable Cause, Authority or Reasons

You may recall last year’s revelation that the U.S. Post Office is taking pictures of every single piece of mail as part of a gigantic program to keep track of who communicates with whom in America. Under the Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program the pictures of your mail are made available to law enforcement […]

Post Office Spies On All American Mail, NSA Style

In the latest of a series of revelations of the surveillance systems that the U.S. government has arrayed against the American people, we have now learned that the U.S. Postal Service has been storing images of every single piece of mail that is sent within the United States, recording who is sending letters and packages to who, and entering that information into a gigantic database that can be accessed by law enforcement agents, who can read through lists of who any American is corresponding with – all without a search warrant as required by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

Samaroo Joel writes in to Irregular Times, hoping to set us straight on genocide in the Bible.

If Muslims can pray on Madison Avenue, why are Christians banned from praying in public and erecting religious displays on their holy days?

Tell me again, whose country is this? Ours or the Muslims?

The answers are simple.

Christians can and do pray […]

Why Are Letters To Congress Still Being Delayed For Weeks?

Mail to our senators and representatives is being subjected to weeks of extra screening, as if an anthrax attack is likely at any time. […]

Applying for Permission to Protest in Washington on January 20, 2009: Please, Uncle Sam, can my Friends Talk Too?

[Update: The National Park Service has now changed its stance. As of the end of November, 2008, individuals and groups of less than 25 will be permitted to attend the inauguration, with signs, without a permit.]

If you want to carry a sign to the presidential inaugural parade on January 20, 2009, you’ve got to […]

Tip for the Terrorists: Use FedEx!

This morning, I gave a call to the National Park Service to check in and found out that if I wanted to carry any kind of a sign when standing in the crowd at the presidential inaugural parade on January 20, 2009, I’d have to apply for a permit. A free speech permit. To carry […]
