    The Obama administration is to set out how it proposes to end the mass collection of Americans' phone call data this week, as legislators in the House of Representatives prepare to unveil a bill that would significantly curtail the practice but lower the legal standards for the collection of such information.
    That last part bears repeating:
    but lower the legal standards for the collection of such information.

    And:

    A separate proposal, to be published on Tuesday by the leaders of the House intelligence committee, would not necessarily require a judge's prior approval to access phone or email data.

    So another fake to the left, then a hard right toward fascism.  No thank you.  I'll stick with the 'probable cause' thingy in our Constitution.

    The only reason the 1% are rich is because the 99% agree they are.
