    At this point in my life, most phone calls are routine, but it was not always so.  We need to do much more than repeal the Patriot Act.  As long as the law being used to charge Snowden is on the books, I will never feel secure during any phone conversation.  It's crucial that future whistleblowers not be liable for the draconian prosecution we are now seeing.

    •  Yeah, let's repeal the Espionage Act (1+ / 0-)

      if there were ever a worse, more disingenuously-named act I've never heard of it. It's right up there with the Clear Skies Act.

      None of this shit is espionage. It should be called the Anti-Dissent Act.

      Ou sont les neigedens d'antan?
