I was having blogging troubles on Martin Luther King Day, so I didn't get to post this. But it's important enough to me to do so now.

Below is the text under Bush's picture and the words "IT STILL IS":

At the time Martin Luther King Jr. was championing the rights of all Americans, the government was violating his rights by secretly wiretapping him in the name of national security. The sorry history of the surveillance and wiretapping of dissenters - of those seen as "enemies" of the president - led to a law that specifically requires the president to seek court approval for wiretaps of Americans, even for national security investigations. George Bush believes that he is not bound by this law. An American can be under illegal surveillance by the Bush administration without any judicial check on that power. That's not the America in Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream.
