WASHINGTON — The director of the National Security Agency told Congress on Wednesday that “dozens” of terrorism threats had been halted by the agency’s huge database of the logs of nearly every domestic phone call made by Americans,Except Boston. Except NY. But anyway, let him provide the proof, as in actual credible plots, not some rambling by someone who was pissed off. Not someone talking shit to his boys back home. Actual factual, in the works plots by people that had not been identified by any other legal, above board means or could not have been identified by any other above board means prior to the so called "terrorist act". Put up or shut up. These folks apparently do not understand that the FIRST duty of all government agents it to protect and uphold the US. Constitution. You know, that sovereign law of the land. You know, that piece of paper that says the govt can't search or seize my stuff without probably cause and under oath. In other words, unless I, personally am a suspect in a crime you can't search and seize my shit. How hard is this to understand? It is THIS and other so-called "guaranteed" rights that I want the government to protect. And I accept the RISK that I might get dead as a consequence of being free from random searches and seizures of my shit by a government that has handed the executive the power to declare who is and is not a terrorist. How hard is this to understand?
