Say it with me, "Go screw yourself Bush." This is illegal. First class mail is protected BY LAW. I love how Bush thinks he can do something against the law because he is the president. Sorry, no man is above the law in America... or so I'm told.


Most of the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act deals with mundane changes. But the legislation also explicitly reinforces protections of first-class mail from searches without a court's approval. Yet, in his statement, Bush said he will "construe" an exception, "which provides for opening of an item of a class of mail otherwise sealed against inspection in a manner consistent ... with the need to conduct searches in exigent circumstances."

How can the executive branch tack on stuff like this when the bill is signed? This seems wrong. I don't remember this crazy stuff happening before this asshat went into office.
