Yet another example of BDS

Rob at Say Anything points out the following:
You know what's funny? The same people who support a tax system that requires me to report every penny I earn every year as well as many of the places where I spend my money are suddenly up in arms over an intelligence program that tracks financial transactions in order to catch terrorists.

Just so we're clear, here's the liberal position:

  • Tracking your money so that the government can get a "fair" share: good.

  • Tracking your money to catch terrorists: baaaadddd.

Why this double standard? My guess is because it was Bush's idea, and they hate Bush.
