  •  aah the strict constructionist... thinking Smith (12+ / 0-)

    is as germane today as when it was passed.

    Or something like that...

    We do these things all the time.

    I would counter the HR, but I do not want to recommend this diary. I think it is an honest representation of the Establishment line, and as such, I find the entire line of argument entirely disingenuous. It is predicated on a reality that doesn't exist anymore - it's an anachronism.

    Personally I don't know whether Tort is aware of this or not, but it doesn't matter. This is not only an allowable point of view, it is the point of view. This is the Establishment line. Clear as day.

    HRing this is a worthless endeavor. Better to step in and talk clearly about how this view of the NSA as protector of American citizen and bastion of law and crafted and overseen with legal care is absolute bullshit.

    The NSA is a collection of spooks and spies cashing in on the privatization and weakening of vital government institutions and self governance. Corporate profits are all woven into the NSA. It's a train wreck.

    Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.
