    But I don't even buy the premise. So, does his phone get monitored too? And, is there no such thing as a private conversation anymore?

    King's position also proves that the metadata storyline is bull**** too! It proves that content is being monitored and digested as well to determine whether or not a representative is colluding with al Qaeda or not. But then some of us have known that already.

    Sure - home, work, everything. Does the NSA differentiate with the American public between work and home?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He's right. We already know that John McCain uses his security clearance to meet with officials in Al-Qaeda in order to give them classified information.

    Any reason you couldn't supply a Fox link?

    Apparently FOX is reluctant to shed light on the moron, perhaps embarrassed by this republicans position.

    The NSA should pay special attention to these folks:
