Oh hell, if he used an "autopen" then the whole thing is illegal even thought republikans and democrats passed the bills and presented them to the president for signing..

Authorize court-approved roving wiretaps that permit surveillance on multiple phones.
Allow court-approved seizure of records and property in anti-terrorism operations.
Permit surveillance against a so-called lone wolf, a non-U.S. citizen engaged in terrorism who may not be part of a recognized terrorist group.[181]" "On May 26, 2011, President Barack Obama used an Autopen to sign the PATRIOT Sunsets Extension Act of 2011,[2] a four-year extension of three key provisions in the USA PATRIOT Act while he was in France:[3]roving wiretaps, searches of business records (the "library records provision"), and conducting surveillance of "lone wolves" — individuals suspected of terrorist-related activities not linked to terrorist groups.[4] Republican leaders[184] questioned if the use of the Autopen met the constitutional requirements for signing a bill into law.[185]"

OK ,here it is . Finally republikans in Raleigh have presented a bill, which if passed, I like.
Non profits will be allowed to have "gaming nights"
which would allow poker games, black jack games , craps, roulette wheels ,etc as fund raisers. I see great potential here (and profits) for my non profit organization to generate competition for the Cherokee Indians. Our financial problems could finally have been solved by-- believe it or not---republikans. We may even have to hire large numbers of people to "administer" this program.

America doesnt stand for anything anymore,and when you stand for nothing,its easy to get walked on.Seems to me that America is ripe for a person with strong views,a person with easy solutions.America now,is where Germany was in the nineteen thirties.

NEVER said "illegal". A Democrat extended the "snooping" so to speak. A Republican had nothing to do with it. Here again, you show your bias. BTW, do not know how to spell "Republican"? Oh yeah, what is that.....bias.

My only concern is that after reading some of these posts is how and why did Americans become so damn dumb? Pease people stop drooling like a bunch of idiots and stop mouthing off withot knowledge first. This why our rights are going out the window....STUPID people have allowed it to happen. When you choose to put more stock in American Idol or other such bull shit instead of paying attention to things that matter....well,,you get what you deserve for your ignorance.

"Dumb" in what way? "Drooling" over what? Not all of us watch "American Idol". Your generic rant is falling on deaf ears.

Bias? The facts are bias? The snooping began in late 2002. Who was president then? The extensions of the patriot act were presented to the president for signing by CONGRESS. The US Senate is controlled by democrats by a narrow margin. The US House is controlled by republikans with a large margin. Both houses passed the extensions of the patriot act and presented that to the president for his signature.
Congress is called the legislative branch BECAUSE THEY WRITE THE LAWS. The president and his cabinet are part of the ADMINISTRATIVE BRANCH BECAUSE THEY ADMINISTRATE THE LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS.
The courts are called the JUDICIAL BRANCH BECAUSE THEY ABJUDICATE THE LAWS PASSED BY CONGRESS.

Some heard it, but it went over the heads of others and never reached their ears. Seems like a lot goes entirely over their heads. Like being unable to understand that CONGRESS writes the laws. That includes laws allowing spying on Americans. Beckerheads!!

READ THE ACT! THEN READ THE EXTENSIONS. Why were ONLY the "snooping" extensions signed? Who had "majority" control of the"administrative branch"? BTW, do you know how to spell Republican?

"Minutes before a midnight deadline, President Barack Obama signed into law a four-year extension of post-Sept. 11 powers to search records and conduct roving wiretaps in pursuit of terrorists.

“It’s an important tool for us to continue dealing with an ongoing terrorist threat,” Obama said Friday after a meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

With Obama in France, the White House said the president used an autopen machine that holds a pen and signs his actual signature. It is only used with proper authorization of the president." " Two senators — two Democratic senators — are asking the Obama administration to disclose surveillance powers under the Patriot Act, saying citizens would be “stunned” to learn what the government says it can do.

More on the secrecy of the Patriot Act.

Democrats ran on a platform of change. Instead, they’ve taken the worst aspects of the big-government Bush era and expanded it beyond even Bush.

You get what you vote for."
