    If I were a judge for the FISC, I certainly wouldn’t admit it to anyone.

    Sadly appropriate.

    It has not been demonstrated that the NSA is in fact providing us with greater security.
    Even if their surveillance is providing us with greater security, it is by no means established that the EXTENT of their surveillance is justified — and it is fairly safe to say that it is not.
    And some might say that “security” is not sufficient excuse to run roughshod over American citizens. Because it isn’t.

    The last I read about the FISA court had nothing to do with “stop”. It had to do with “Nothing to see here. Move along.”

    Anybody remember old Joe McCarthy, and the era of “patriotism”? The nutso-whacko claque will always seek to “wrap it in the flag, boys; wrap it in the flag”, and get away with as much as possible in doing so. And of course, to “prove” their positions and points, the adorn their silly little imitation Revolutionary war hats with TEAbags today – while the old song has it: " . . . put a feather in his hat, and called it macaroni." Styles may change, but little children still think that “dress-up” makes the . . .“REALITY”?

    It certainly has nothing to do with “stop”! Since the FISC’s inception (as of 2012, inclusive) there have been 33,949 FISA applications presented for warrants and only 11 applications refused.

    Does it qualify as paranoia if someone really is plotting against you? Possibly one fr the philosophers.

    Since the rather inept and infantile presentation of the imaginary “IRS scandal” has sort of flopped already, it might behoove those for whom fantasy and fiction are superior “lifestyles” to mere REALITY to come up with something a bit more . . . entertaining, perhaps? . . . by way of criticism of our President. And, just by the way, the President who left marks from his golf spikes on the Centuries old furniture of the Oval Office was Eisenhower, a good Republican – of which there were still many around in those pre TEAbaghead days.

    Since intelligence work is classified the vast majority of people opining on it have no idea what they are talking about.

    It’s too late – somebody is already making too much money butting into our business. Progressives nor conservatives value the desirability and sacredness of privacy.
