In more than a dozen classified rulings, the nation’s surveillance court has created a secret body of law giving the National Security Agency the power to amass vast collections of data on Americans while pursuing not only terrorism suspects, but also people possibly involved in nuclear proliferation, espionage and cyberattacks, officials say.

The rulings, some nearly 100 pages long, reveal that the court has taken on a much more expansive role by regularly assessing broad constitutional questions and establishing important judicial precedents, with almost no public scrutiny, according to current and former officials familiar with the court’s classified decisions.

The 11-member Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, known as the FISA court, was once mostly focused on approving case-by-case wiretapping orders. But since major changes in legislation and greater judicial oversight of intelligence operations were instituted six years ago, it has quietly become almost a parallel Supreme Court, serving as the ultimate arbiter on surveillance issues and delivering opinions that will most likely shape intelligence practices for years to come, the officials said.

More whimsey from the NC teabaggers who couldn't care less about liberty and obviously haven't been Taxed Enough Already:
5 Worst Ideas From North Carolina’s Tea Party Legislature
Accidentally Banning Domestic Partnerships Between Heterosexual Couples
North Carolina voters took to the polls last year and voted overwhelmingly in favor of a Constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. What voters didn’t realize was that defining the only legal partnership as marriage between one man and one woman could in turn nullify domestic partnerships between heterosexual couples. Which is exactly what happened.
The text of Amendment One reads that “marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.” Prior to this vote, same-sex marriage was already illegal in the state. The amendment just added an extra layer, making civil unions and domestic partnerships illegal as well — for everyone.
What do you mean by "domestic partnerships between heterosexual couples"?

Tenzing lives in the Soros Echo chamber that thinks everybody who isn't pro-Obama must be a member of the Tea Party.
I am liking it. He is alienating more than shaming people here which is the stupidity of the Progressive sites.
I'd like to see proof of anything you say in this post, its not the least bit unreasonable to assume that right-wingers on here think they're teabaggers.

In any case, that I think right-wingers pose a threat to individual liberty and small government hardly puts me on the left. You're another confused right-winger who can only think in binary terms: Tenzing isn't a moronic right-winger so he must be an Obama liberal.

That isn't the point and you know it. The so called less government teabaggers have shown repeatedly that one of their first orders of business is to expand the scope and authority of the government in passing or proposing abortion restrictions or bans. Forcing a woman to get an ultrasound before having an abortion is either putting that cost on the taxpayer or taxing the woman seeking the abortion depending on how its funded. Either way it isn't remotely in keeping with the tenet of Taxed Enough Already.

Very true.

Also, it cannot be interpreted as meaning health standards should be abandoned.

Should any Texas woman think that are empowered because they can currently get a D&E for an unplanned pregnancy at a place with lower standards than where they go to get a endoscopy for an acid reflux diagnosis?

Galt believes that abortion clinics should meet the same standards as other outpatient surgical clinics, including the presence of a licensed physician, and that laws requiring same are reasonable under Roe v. Wade. That requirement was one of the elements of the law that you opposed.

Living together.

The NC teabaggers are so concerned with personal liberty they tried to outlaw the living arrangements of consenting adults, even the heterosexual ones ('cause you know how much gayness violates individual rights and increases taxes).

Galt believes that abortions should be performed only by licensed and qualified physicians.

Galt believes that the requirement for an ultrasound should be entirely in the judgment of the physician performing the procedure.

The patient is always free to find another physician if she disagrees.
