Total Information Awareness funding blocked
Well, it's about time the United States Senate got its act together against the creeping fascism that is overwhelming our government. Yesterday, it blocked funding, by voice vote, for the Pentagon's Total Information Awareness project [http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A34837-2003Jan23.html]. It still has to go to the House for passage and the Pentagon could just ignore the congress and fund it out of its black operations budget. But let's just say that this is a good first step in reeling in the fascists.
