    Apparently it is the logs for business calls.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Maybe so, but warrants don't automatic make things right, only legal.

    So it's to protect us right? Who will protect us from the government that has shown it can abuse its powers?

    Here is the bottom line: Nothing is going to change. No one in government is going to get into major trouble over it. No one at Verizon is going to lose any sleep over it. Citizen can demand that Washington repeal the Patriot Acts. Citizen won't demand it. Washington knows this. Washington will do as it bloody well likes; they'll make a few statements and excuses; the opposition will rattle sabers but in essence will do nothing about it. The majority of voters will continue to remain partisans and they will vote the incumbents back in office. Washington knows this. Nothing will change. Nothing will change. Nothing will change.
