    One outraged senator, Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said of the phone-records collecting: “When law-abiding Americans make phone calls, who they call, when they call and where they call is private information. As a result of the discussion that came to light today, now we’re going to have a real debate.”
    But Republican Lindsay Graham of South Carolina said Americans have no cause for concern. “If you’re not getting a call from a terrorist organization, you’ve got nothing to worry about,” he said.

    this is Not News, this has been happening for years. Dubya did it,, and there were others too. anyone with a phone book used to find out all they wanted.

    Hey, D-Bagger, this is Obama, not Bush we’re talking about!

    Hey Rep-tard, it started under Dubya. Bi-partisan efforts (mostly Democrats) to get more transparency have been shut down in Congress since 205. It’s a target-rich environment for villains (in Congress, the White House, and the Justice Dept) since 2005.

    I don’t care who’s doing it, I don’t like it. I don’t like it that Bush made it possible, and I don’t like it that Obama made it worse.

    I remember back in the 1970s, the great Judith Merrill (the science-fiction writer) said one day on the CBC show “Ideas”, “Privacy is over. Get used to it.”

    Never trust anyone who says: “If you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about.”

    If you hear that, start worrying. Even if you haven’t figured out what to worry about.

    Why limit this to libs? I think we should all be very afraid. George Orwell just had the wrong calendar in front of him…..

    Hey, D-urd, 1 – I don’t care who started it, I didn’t like Bush starting it. 2 – So, that makes it ok for Obummer to take what was bad and turn it far worse? Your priorities are whacked and your reasonings are unjustified!

    Rather quick to judge aren’t we?
    Convenient to leave out the prime suspect?
    Mr. and Mrs. and Ms. Americans?

    I said it was a target-rich environment for blame to go all around. That means both parties, d-wad.

    Just because you are paranoid does not mean they are out to get you.

    Ajax, I think what you wanted to say was, “Just because you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you.”
