Anyone OK with the govt collecting phone records?

Can anyone spin this so it seems ok? Where are the Obama can do no wrong OGers on this one? Phone Post 3.0

Most everyone is okay with this. Might be a little bitching, but at the end of the day they'll keep voting for the same politicians that allow this

The Republicans pretty much universally support and endorse the practice, so one would assume they all support it.

I have nothing to hide, but this makes me so fucking angry... So far the only excuses for this have been: "I have nothing to hide", "Bush did it" and "Are you really shocked that companies save your info and Government wants it?

This is total bullshit.. Even Huffpo is being honest.

Yea, no doubt. When it comes to trampling on civil liberties our Gov't is bipartisan

The problem is that nobody is making that "excuse."

Serious question, are they just collecting the call data or listening in on calls?

Not that one is better than the other but I thought I read that the only records they would get is how long you were on the phone with someone and who you were on the phone with.

I'm not ok with either scenario, but just trying to clarify.

Most Libertarians believe in a federal government, which makes them the same as everyone else. Other than the anarchist wing of the Libertarian party, there's no moral high ground there.

The slope is becoming slipperier.

Expect this to turn into a 'my team is better that your team' debate though, which is exactly what the big government wants, instead of focus on the issue at hand.

Are any of you really going to fall for this again next election? Having your choices reduced through the media, to two bumbling idiots that will continue to pander to lobbyists and trample your civil liberties?

Every year there is a little more trampling done and the same brainwashed souls come out and say its a conspiracy looney topic and that they have nothing to hide.

Ok. Let's see how this turns out. Phone Post

lol.  The program started in 2006.  You made a thread trashing Obama for something that started in 2006.  What Obama is guilty of is being a 2 faced lying hypocrite who slammed Bush for the same things that he's doing, but like people are pointing out on this thread, eroding the freedoms of the American citizen is a bi-partisan effort.



You didn't want the terrorists to win in 2006.  Do you want them to win now?

I certainly am not

What the fuck are you talking about.


Bush does it, Obama does it.

Someone like Gary Johnson/ron paul would be against it.

haha, exactly.  And as the esteemed tjmitch so astutely demonstrates on this thread, when your team does it, it doesn't seem so bad.  But when the other team does it, by golly....loud noises!
