Checks and Balances are Overrated Anyway

Interesting NYT article on some of the new changes our fearless leader is asking for in his fight against terrorism...

I think my favorite part is this:

Officials could not cite specific examples in which difficulties in obtaining a subpoena had slowed a terrorism investigation.

So they're not willing to actually give examples of why this is needed, and we should just take them at their word that it's a good idea, and accept their assurance that it would only be used when it's in our best interest.

Pardon me if I'm less than thrilled about this concept.
