  •  Rand Paul is gutlessly kicking it to the courts (5+ / 0-)

    And since he's the paradigm of teabagger "Constitution" goodness in the Senate... we're probably screwed getting Congress to give a damn. The one issue they can and should make a difference on and the Paulbots are worthless.

    All the pretty words by Obama aren't about actual reform... the goal isn't to truly reform the agency; it is deceive people into believing it has been so that they no longer fear it or are angry about it. As Greenwald said in his closing paragraph today (total kick ass article):

    Today's speech should be seen as the first step, not the last, on the road to restoring privacy. The causes that drove Obama to give this speech need to be, and will be, stoked and nurtured further until it becomes clear to official Washington that, this time around, cosmetic gestures are plainly inadequate.

    One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. --Carl Jung
