    It's all fun and games until the police come knocking at the door. Not sure how much truth there is in the following story but I am sure there is a lot.

    Absolutely doesn't make it right, just ironic. I recall quite a few people weren't apathetic when the Patriot Act, which this NSA spying is just an extention of, was passed.

    Ah yes, the Patriot Act. Another "Let's pass this and see what's in it bill" One of the worst bills ever passed. It set constitutional rights back 100 years. Supposed to have a sunset clause in it, but they keep bringing some of it back every year.

    I remember when Senate Democrats had initiated a filabuster to stop the Patriot Act led by none other than Wisconsin's own Senator Feingold. Within a day or two you had some of the establishment Senators jumping ship. In 2013 our Congress and Senate members are so far removed from reality that they probably don't even realize what they're doing to the working poor and lower middle class.
