A federal judge in New York ruled Friday that the massive collection of domestic telephone data brought to light by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden is lawful, rejecting a challenge to the program by the American Civil Liberties Union.
The decision conflicts with that of a U.S. District Court judge who ruled against the government early last week, finding that the NSA’s program was almost certainly unconstitutional. The divergent decisions make it more likely that the Supreme Court will make its own ruling. More here:
LOL ... yeah ... the "Supreme Court." The great guardians of freedom that just ruled the government could force you to buy something (health insurance.) And this judge just ruled for the government and against YOU. These government types are really sticking together, aren't they? Checks and balances my ass.
I guess they can just take whatever they damn well please, can't they. Your money, your liberty ... they can spy on you anytime they want without a court order. I'll bet this is EXACTLY what our founders had in mind for your freedom ... an unlimited federal government. And the states can't say "boo." The states are nothing now. In fact, why do we even have states anymore? So they can set different speed limits? Oooooooo ... such power!
Why have senators? If we're going to directly elect senators by popular vote then what purpose do they serve? We already directly elect our representatives. What? We need two more of those boobs per state?
How does it feel being a full fledged slave now? But there's still some good news ... the government still lets you keep SOME of your own money. Less than half now ... but, hey, they probably won't take any more, right?
