Senate approves warrantless phone tapping for next 5 years. “The bill now goes to Obama for his signature, which it wil almost surely get—he’s a vocal supporter of the legislation.” Civil rights are only at risk when a Republican is president.

Each and every action by Congress needs to have paper attached to it, with an explanation of how it fits in with the Constitution. It should also have another attached where anyone opposed to it for Constitutional reasons can tell why.

It is Bush’s fault due to the Patriot Act as it opened the door to this, but this time around Bush is not getting the “fault” because a Democrat is in power. If it was a Republican then of course this would have made national news and the evil and racists Republican would have been reviled.

Agreed KimmyQueen. That is why I said every one of them needs to appear and explain

We have to stop saying it’s ok when our guys do it but not when their guys do it. One of the things I hated most about Romney was his support for the NDAA and keeping Americans “safe” by violating our rights. We also can’t afford to support Republicans like Romney just because they are slightly better then the other guy, because the Republican party will never change. Don’t get me wrong, screw the Republican party, if they don’t want to change I’ll vote Libertarian all day long, if they start leaning more Libertarian and Conservative then they may get my vote out of practicality. I don’t think this country can be saved if we keep voting for RINO’s because they will keep doing the same thing and take us down the same path the libs are.

Big brother communist ass holes. What are they afraid of? I know we the people are subjected to the whims of fools and control freaks. This all came about due to the FBI higher ups to damn worried about turf to WTFU and see that 20 jihadist where planning to mass murder us. So the hair brains in DC come up this POS of legislation to hound us al. Ever one who voted for and signed this garbage needs to appear in front of the cameras one at a time and in 5 minutes explain to us why it is that they shouldn’t resign from office then be tarred and feathered.

Looks like it’s time to start going back to the days of meeting up at the pub to talk business.

That is how the French Revolution got started and perhaps the American Revolution as well…

Bingo. No electronic method is safe. None. Cell phones or land lines? Forget it. Innocuous lingo only. Internet? There isn’t a bigger joke than that when it comes to secure comm. Letters through USPS? Ditto innocuous lingo required. Coffee talk, public houses. Small gatherings to exchange desires and ideas. Know who you talk to and don’t talk about anybody. Don’t want to wait too long before determining who what where, it could be too late very soon!

A hearty fuck you to the purported “republicans” in the house/senate. How bout we have that revolution now? Anyone? Beuller?
It is damn past time to take America back from the constitution usurping “elected” officials. This is ridiculous-and un-American. This, NDAA, and all the other constitution pissing of Obama and W equals our demise folks. time to wake the fuck up!

There is no liberal outrage, just liberal complicity. If anybody asks them, they’ll just blame Bush.
