Cartoon #232: “Domestic Spying”

Title: Domestic Spying; Text: (National Security Agency seal with the word 'Security' replaced by the word 'Disgrace' and the eagle's head bowed and wings lowered in shame.)

Here’s the deal. The U.S. is not at war. How do I know? Look at any seal of the United States, or any seal of any federal agency. It is also on the back of a one dollar bill. Look at the eagle’s head. While the head has been facing the same side as the eagle’s talons holding the olive branch (symbol for peace), the U.S. has been in peacetime. When the U.S. was last at war, the eagle’s head faced the other way, toward the talons holding the arrows (symbol for war). The last time any seals of the U.S. depicted wartime was in 1945.

The claim that the U.S. has been at war since 2001 is a lie. If, like lots of United Statesans, you believe this lie, you now know the truth. Only citizens of the U.S., through direct action by their representatives in congress, can go to war. Now you know.

Moreover, President Bush has been using this lie to justify the uprecedented, dictatorial power of illegally spying on you. The National Security Agency is complicit in this conspiracy. The NSA obeyed an illegal order from the president in peacetime. These are high crimes. Felonies. Violations of the fourth amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Impeachable offenses.

Do your duty.
