    You're accusing me of bad faith? After all the years I've posted here?  Admiral Santa went back 33 years. I was a child 33 years ago.

    I relied on media reports like this:

    As required by provisions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Amendments of 2008 (FISA) and the Patriot Act (as amended in 2005), the Department of Justice revealed to Congress the end of last month the number of applications for eavesdropping received and rejected by the FISA court.
    To no one’s surprise (least of all to the architects and builders of the already sprawling surveillance state), the letter addressed to Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) reports that in 2012, of the 1,789 requests made by the government to monitor the electronic communications of citizens, not a single one was rejected.

    I didn't see the most recent numbers .03% that Mother Jones reported last month. I missed that.  I was dealing with a family member who was dying. I can give you a letter from the funeral director. Would that do?


    And just so we're clear, .03% rounds down to freaking ZERO.
    You clearly missed the joke.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
