This is what I have to deal with every night...

I've spent most of the day so far beating myself over the head with a 1000 + page dreamweaver 8 manual. There are things I want to do with the site that I don't know how to do, but I don't think I'm going to be able to learn everything in the time that I need the website up in.

George W. Bush, president of the United States of America was awarded the first place Jefferson Muzzle, anti-free speech award for 2006, by the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression. The NSA warrantless wiretapping that was authorized by a secret executive order by him was cited as the primary reason for this distiction. Acording to their website: "...the Jefferson Muzzles are awarded as a means to draw national attention to abridgments of free speech and press and, at the same time, foster an appreciation for those tenets of the First Amendment."

To legally use electric surveillance against citizens in the US, the government has to get a warrant from the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The court was established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978. However, the US government maintains that they are allowed to under the Authorization for Use of Military Force of 2001. "Our position is that the authorization to use force, which was passed by the Congress in the days following September 11th, constitutes that other authorization, that other statute by Congress, to engage in this kind of signals intelligence," Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said on December 19, 2005 [1].

Joe and I are setting up a web design/tech support business. Right now I'm trying to get the website up and running.

One thing I think I keep forgetting from running is how much of a nightmare it could be sometimes. I've only been working on for a few days and I already want to fucking kill myself.
