We just got a letter…if George W. Bush didn’t take it. The New York Daily News reports today that El Presidente claims, via a signing statement, that he has the power to open every Americans’ mail without a search warrant.
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 man knows no bounds, does he? There is a place in America where the authorities open your mail without a warrant. It’s called prison.
