Senate approves warrantless phone tapping for next five years

Quote:
Today, after just one day of rushed debate, the Senate shamefully voted on a five-year extension to the FISA Amendments Act, an unconsitutional law that openly allows for warrantless surveillance of Americans' overseas communications.

Incredibly, the Senate rejected all the proposed amendments that would have brought a modicum of transparency and oversight to the government's activities, despite previous refusals by the Executive branch to even estimate how many Americans are surveilled by this program or reveal critical secret court rulings interpreting it.

I know this doesn't bother a lot of you guys, but it's just another in a long line of bills trashing our Constitution.

Drones killing American citizens without due process excites them also. Wonder how many of them will take issue with this?

Odd. Members of the government do not see any problems with intrusive oversight by government.

We got what we paid for.


The theory used to be that the elected representatives were on our side. Now they are on their side, against us.

To those who said this was an acceptable bill when Bush signed it, and to those who assured us all it was only temporary - this is why it should never have passed. Regardless of the party that passed it.

The Democrats who were against this while Bush was in office sure are quiet now.

Of course, they are... many of the Obama fans are damn near worship of him. He could invade Iraq for WMD's at this point, and many of his base would still cheer.
