    NSA Phone data Collection ruled Illegal

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/08/us...ourt.html?_r=0

    WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court in New York on Thursday ruled that the once-secret National Security Agency program that is systematically collecting Americans’ phone records in bulk is illegal. The decision comes as a fight in Congress is intensifying over whether to end and replace the program, or to extend it without changes.
    I total agree with this decision. I hope it is truly the first step in reeling in the power of the NSA.

    So can we stop calling for Snowden to be hanged as a traitor, then?

    Amazing how people called him the traitor instead the dirtbags spying on the American people and those who failed their oath to uphold and or defend the constitution.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I agree 100% with the decision, now only if they enforce it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Agreed - as it should be.
