US Senators from both parties overwhelmingly approved a bill this morning that will authorize warrantless wiretaps, throughout 2013 and for four years beyond that.

Obama wanted this and they gave it to him. You like Obama so where is the problem?

One thing they can agree on - appalling.

Sad that the GOP in the House insisted on removing Feinstein's amendment the Senate passed that would not have allowed this when the bill went to conference committee--that is who we all should be pointing the finger at and holding responsible for this stripping of our freedoms and rights.

Six months ago I was called crazy for saying these things were coming down the pipe, now here we are. It's gonna get much much worse too. And no it wasn't carrie who called me crazy it was some comments I got on my blog, I wasn't even with CARE 2 six months ago, all I am saying right now is brace yourselves, the ride is fixing to crash.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Joe Mullin. Followed the link in the article to see how my two Senators voted and i was not surprised. Sen. Brown(D) voted against while Sen. Portman(R) voted for it. I have already sent an email to each, thanking Sen. Brown and admonishing Sen. Portman. Will be contacting the White House today expressing my displeasure and asking for a veto. I doubt the Bill will be vetoed but at least they will know how I feel about this piece of very bad legislation. Read and noted.

Yep, and we elect these folks into office. Constitution--what constitution? It's Big Brother 30 years after the title of the book! Hope they find my life more interesting than what I do! God bless them if they do!

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. Complicit Dems. are bought and paid for. So, kudos to Feinstein for recommending the Assault Weapons Ban be passed....then, on the other hand, many "boos" for her fearmongering and parroting words from the Bush years. I swear, they must be taking turns screwing the majority of Americans.
