Quote:A federal judge ruled Monday that the National Security Agency program which collects information on nearly all telephone calls made to, from or within the United States is likely unconstitutional.
U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon found that the program appears to violate the Fourth Amendment ban on unreasonable searches and seizures. He also said the Justice Department had failed to demonstrate that collecting the information had helped to head off terrorist attacks.

I don't believe it takes a judge, or even law degree to come to that conclusion. All you have to do is familiarize yourself with the constitution.
Whether or not this ultimately changes anything remains to be seen, but I have my doubts.

I'm not sure that the NSA cares about the Constitution, nor the laws of the USA.

That's why National Security Letters should be banned. They make it a crime to expose the government's crime.

Bad Karma

Octo and I were both quite surprised that any of this came as a shock to anyone.
I just naturally assumed every stroke of the keyboard and phone calls were being monitored.
I guess it was the actual verification of the fact really pulled the carpet out from under the sheepsies feet.

gaah.gif How dare them pull the carpet out from under my feet!

Actually I figured octo was NSA and didn't tell JAY, (who she chipped when he was asleep).

Remember the last time octo told you to do something and you didn't want to do it? What happened? You did it.

See. damned.gif

Hi JayRodney,

Yeah,,,I think we have known this for a very long time,,,

from that guy screaming long ago about the computer equipment list

and cable pipe going into and out of the secret room,,,

that was a decade ago,,,now they say they don't listen to our phone calls,,,

right,,,computers do,,,everything,,,everything bought on credit cards,,,

they got everything,,,now what I wonder about,,,is all the stuff

we don't know about,,,all the stuff Snowden hasn't said yet,,,

what the new future story is,,,what the real game plan is...
