    nah i just pay attention to politics.

    the only california congress members mentioned in the news these days is Darrel Issa and Nancy pelosi, and nether of them are getting good press.

    at least my congresswoman eshoo has not done anything stupid enough to earn scorn.

    LOL ... no, but when one goes to make a smarmy comparison, in this case to paste Sensenbrenner, while at the same time accidentally indicating that they do not know who the man is, it is funny to the rest of us. Not to mention that if you had just tried to keep up with the thread, I had mentioned him in a post a couple hours ago, if that, where I spoke of his tenure, and that he was R-WI.

    The police are not allowed to just walk into our homes or peep into our windows without a warrant. Out on the streets we have no reasonable expectation of privacy. It is reasonable to expect that your phone calls and e-mail are private.

    And he is out. The man who revealed this **** storm. A hero and a great man that was not afraid to tell the truth and reveal something he thought was wrong. Whistle blowing is not a crime! [/FONT][/COLOR]
    An excerpt from the DNI's public statement today:
    "As our nation faces the most diverse set of threats I've seen in my 50 years in intelligence, the unauthorized disclosure of two important surveillance programs has inflicted potentially long-lasting and irreversible harm to our ability to identify and respond to those threats. As news coverage of these unauthorized disclosures continues, we need to press on with our mission and not let these disclosures distract us from our intelligence efforts.

    "The articles published in conjunction with these leaks contain numerous inaccuracies, both in describing the purpose of our efforts and in the way they characterize the work that we do. They omit key information regarding how these classified intelligence collection programs are used to prevent terrorist attacks and the numerous safeguards Congress, the FISA Court and the Intelligence Community have put in place to protect privacy and civil liberties."

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I'm impressed, and rifling through the phone calls and emails of ordinary citizens is how they're doing it. Just like strip searching Grandma at the airport, they're just taking precautions. I agreed to a narrow focus of known terrorists contacting potential cells inside the US, not wholesale scanning of everyone's phone calls and emails.
