When will the ACLU start speaking up against all of our liberties being taken away? When will you have a voice again? You guys have been neutered by kissing Obama's ass for so long. Stand up for Americans! Do your job and get back in touch with your conscience.

You add this with with all the giant data centers Homeland Security is building around the country to store all this info.
They are free to search/sieze any electronics of yours within 100 miles of the border which is the majority of citizens.
Indefinite detention with the usual no due process or judical oversight
Assassination of US citizens with the usual no due process or judical oversight
You have your war on whisteblowers. Obama has use the outdate espionage act to prosecute DOUBLE the amount of people than ALL past administrations combine.
The list goes on and you do not have any recourse as when these cases do make it to court, they get off on national security grounds where they do not have to relase any info as it "might compromise national security"./end of trial.
As crazy as many of the republicans currently are, you fake liberal/progressives make me sick as you were so up in arms when Bush did things not even close to this bad but now that Obama is in office you are deafly quite. You truely are hypocrates and free pass for Obama makes me fear for this country moreso than any republican could.

Must be nice to have your job done for you and the work handed to you on a silver platter.
Workplace lazyness is exactly why the Patriot Act or policies like this will not be ended. Those who use this data would have to find it out other ways-with pesky search warrants or shoe leather investigations. This is one big reason policies like this are hard to retract. There are no take backs or admissions of mistakes in government bureacrat world.
