  • This is my BIG beef with the current president. The DOJ just argued Bush's same arguments in court and the Patriot Act needs to be SHREDDED NOW...ASAP!

    So forget the tea bags, I WOULD protest THIS!!

  • This is one area where I am disappointed with the Obama Administration. I feel that warrantless wiretapping is against our right to privacy. Although the only thing they would get from wiretapping me is some good gossip LOL.

  • Not only did he argue Bush argument, but he ADDED to it with (quote from article) it's the Department Of Justice's second argument that is the most pernicious. The DOJ claims that the U.S. Government is completely immune from litigation for illegal spying — that the Government can never be sued for surveillance that violates federal privacy statutes. This is a radical assertion that is utterly unprecedented. No one — not the White House, not the Justice Department, not any member of Congress, and not the Bush Administration — has ever interpreted the law this way.


    He just took warrentless wiretapping to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!!! jmo

  • lol sweet. sidebar: Huffington reports the news TITLE, but then their blogasmear adds a spin that is (to say the lease) leaned in a certain (leftist) direction... On more than one occassion they have reported content that was "doctored" to satisfy their agenda. Not till caught and pubically ripped apart, did they remove them... Not a great source for news, but a good one to build your liberal interpretation of current events, for sure! jmo..
