Big Brother arrives: A federal judge has approved the installation of surveillance cameras by the police — on private property without a warrant.

Let me repeat that: The judge said that the police have the right to enter private property, without a warrant, in order to secretly install surveillance cameras so that they can record whatever happens on that property.

Doesn’t that make you feel safe?

    Really, ya have to wonder, what is happening to this country? It seems the Constitution is no obstacle to anything anymore – a president can openly flout Constutuitional laws by Executive Order, and courts allow invasions of privacy clearly in violation of the 4th Amendment. And we have regime in power for another 4 years that will only seek to expand its power – does anyone think Obama’s re-election will cause him to feel more cautious, more respectful of Constitutional limits on his power?
