    You get what you deserve.

    Now that would be undeserved, if it were true.

    KhimkiForest dot com. You will care.

    New report from Greenwald:

    Low level NSA employees can read your emails

    But it's an accident when they do it:

    Chambliss said that any monitoring of emails is purely “accidental.”

    Well, I feel better now.

    I hope they nail these fuckers TO THE CROSS!

    They seem to be making a case that it's alright to collect this information provided they don't look at it without a warrant.

    Somehow I can't twist this enough to get there:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    I'm secure against searches and seizures, NOT whether you look at my shit after you've seized it.

    I'm secure against searches and seizures

    .. unless some judge deems it "reasonable". And those sitting in FISA court all deem it so... and they are appointed by the ones sitting in the SC.

    Since they have declared and rationalized their actions as legal (e.g. "reasonable" or that handing your emails to a third party makes it no longer part of "your papers or effects", and thus there less expectations of privacy), here's a simple fix... but this goes to the root, the very foundation, to prevent them from even being able to rationalize their acts as being legal in the first place:

    No property rights shall be violated. Period.

    A criminal loses his rights until restitution is made.

    Thus, if you spy/wiretap/invade someone's property or demand their information, you had BETTER be sure that person is a criminal.

    Thus, all (natural) law enforcement would be inherently speculative, always carrying some risk. In this new constitution, there would be no sovereign immunity to shield them.

    Hilarious. The executive has given itself permission to operate otside the bounds of the constitution and created a secret court and secret body of law as a rubber stamp. It is treating the American people as an enemy and turning a formerly free country into a police state. Yep, that is a hoot.

    If you want to get a chuckle out of me try putting the guilty parties in prison.

    For an extra hoot, make sure they are well tarred and feathered when their arse hits the cell.

  • PH2050||

    Yeah wtf, I can't laugh at this stuff.

    So instead, I self-medicate.

  • Jon Lester||

    I had a comment but it must have gone to the 24/7 entry instead of here.

    Establishment Republicans have been loosely called fascistic for decades now, and I find it hard to believe they're actually branding themselves that way with this recent talk. It won't help, of course; as gladly as the media will focus on Rand Paul's abortion views, at the expense of his otherwise libertarian message, it won't be because they want to do any favors for that other wing of the GOP.

  • Jon Lester||

    Now it appears my comment has gone the wrong blog entry.

  • Jon Lester||

    Three coffees and zero smokes so far today.

  • AlmightyJB||

    I've done that before on my phone.

  • Number 7||

    The NSA funnies would have been funnier if they were actually funny.

  • I can't trust my fans||

    OT: Just because you're a 95-year-old nursing home resident doesn't mean that the cops won't tase you to death. Bitch.

  • PH2050||

    I'd like to quote Professor Farnsworth:

    "I don't want to live on this planet anymore."

  • Alan||

    I almost want to move to New York so I can vote for Dunkin Schoanhauer.

  • James Anderson Merritt||

    Dunkin Schoanhauer reminds me of the gangster US President that Richard Belzer portrayed in "Tunnelvision." Very funny.

  • Canman||

    Robert Redford's character in the movie, "Sneakers": "You know, I could have worked for the NSA. But then they found out that my parents were married."
