Cheney wants to see your credit history

Who's taking more power now?

That would be straight shooter (just kidding) Dick Cheney. And DICK is the right name for this mean sumabiatch...

GU National security letters permit the executive branch to seek records about people in terrorism and spy investigations without a judge's approval or grand jury subpoena. ``The Defense Department gets involved because we've got hundreds of bases inside the United States that are potential terrorist targets,'' Cheney said. ``The Department of Defense has legitimate authority in this area. This is an authority that goes back three or four decades. It was reaffirmed in the Patriot Act,'' he said. ``It's perfectly legitimate activity. There's nothing wrong with it or illegal. It doesn't violate people's civil rights.''
