    Not surprised. Still pissed. Trying to figure out a way to stop this.

    For everyone, there comes a time where you've just had enough and it's time to say "when"

    This is why rational actors distrust government.

    A) The fact people seem to find this surprising amuses me.

    B) If these companies are allowing access, your complaint is not with the government, but rather the systems which are allowing access.

    My opinion has been and remains that FISA is sufficiently robust and flexible to deal with the contemporary terrorist threat in a timely fashion, while safeguarding the basic constitutional rights of Americans. Unfortunately, post-9/11 laws have made possible today's dramatic escalation of domestic surveillance, even if such laws were adopted with the best of intentions. Congress should launch a bipartisan and transparent investigation into the recent reports of far-reaching domestic surveillance, as it may raise profound constitutional issues in the absence of clear and firm restraints.

    Been telling people they need to stop
    and america failed to listen to YOU?

    imagine that

    maybe you shoulda provided a link

    mom and pop were too busy listening to someone else, evidently

    No one should get a free pass to violate the basic civil liberties of the American people – not the President of the United States, and not the telecommunications companies that fell in line with his warrantless surveillance program. We have to make clear the lines that cannot be crossed.

    That is why I am co-sponsoring Senator Dodd’s amendment to remove the immunity provision. Secrecy must not trump accountability. We must show our citizens – and set an example to the world – that laws cannot be ignored when it is inconvenient.

    A grassroots movement of Americans has pushed this issue to the forefront. You have come together across this country. You have called upon our leaders to adhere to the Constitution. You have sent a message to the halls of power that the American people will not permit the abuse of power – and demanded that we reclaim our core values by restoring the rule of law.

    It’s time for Washington to hear your voices, and to act. I share your commitment to this cause, and will stand with you in the fights to come. And when I am President, the American people will once again be able to trust that their government will stand for justice, and will defend the liberties that we hold so dear as vigorously as we defend our security.

    you're gonna be on a list too
    well, if you use a phone...

    As I have always said, never accept powers for yourself that you wouldn't trust to a political rival.
