    Worked for Bush too, and he didn't make that phone call either. So long as the Republocrats are in charge, the NSA ain't gonna change.

    Welcome to our surveillance state. Apparently even the USSSC is in the pockets of the NSA.
    Hopefully one of these cases will reach our highest court in the land.



    Not if the Supreme Court decides that they don't want to hear the case.

    Sorry, but unfortunately that's the way that it works (Or doesn't work, depending upon your point of view.).

    The Republicans aren't in charge of Obama's cabinet.

    Nope, they were in charge of Bush's. And as I said, he never made the phone call either. This stuff didn't spring up under Obama, Obama just proliferated it. Republocrat control will proliferate out of control government.

    Bush isn't president. Is this just more, "but...but...but Bush did it'"?

    No, it's more of the "Neither side is doing anything to stop it" mantra. Bush did do it, didn't make it right. But likely no one you will support will change it. Your initial comment is a polarizing comment made only to make the other side look bad with the hope no one questions your side. Partisan politics is a tool used to deceive. Obama is just a continuation of Bush. Rationally and logically no one who liked Bush could hate Obama and vice versa. And so I was just pointing out that your comment condemning Obama's actions is hollow. So long as the Republocrats remain in charge, it won't change. Neither R or D will make that call to reign in the NSA.

    I never claimed otherwise. Do you have a point??

    Did you not read? The point is that your criticism is moot so long as you keep supporting the problem.

    I'm crticizing people who are bitching about the Supreme Court not doing something about NSA spying, instead of bitching about the NSA's boss not doing something about NSA spying. The NSA belongs to the Executive Branch, not the Judicial Branch.
