    Collecting this information isn't mandated by law. There's nothing keeping Marse Barack from just orfering the NSA to end the operation.

    It's amazing how, again, it's not Marse Barack's fault.

    I suppose he could, but could you imagine the outcry from Congressional Repubs? Most of them are completely happy with it. I mean, he did inherit it from Marse George didn't he? Something that Marse George passed through a Congress that was friendly to him, as I recall.

    This is true. But don't hold your breathe that the next president, regardless of party, will either.

    Oh no, I'm not saying that at all! It's every bodies fault. And as stated above, Obama could end it? If you want it ended though, you need a guy that thinks like Rand Paul on security/liberty issues.

    Precisely. Which is a demonstration on how partisan Americans are enablers to their party. It's such a bummer that so many Americans are democrats first, and Americans second, and the same with republicans.

    Which he has already stated he will not do! For "security" reasons we must continue to spy on the American people. Perfectly understandable, you know, because we are an evil bunch of dastardly no-goods that requires constant surveillance! Yep, it's money well spent!

    Greetings, apdst.

    Hi Polgara, you know the saying of what you get when you allow security to trump liberty!

    Good morning, Montecresto. Good to see you!

    I believe Ben Franklin said it best, and I paraphrase: When you allow security to trump liberty, you deserve neither, and when the pillars of a free society are dissolved, tyranny is erected on its ruins. I agree with Old Ben!

    Yep, that's the one. And the underlying tone of Obama's speech yesterday was security. I'd like to see a transcript of the speech and count the times he used the word, and justified and defended the program on it.
