Everyone is up in arms about the Verizon wiretapping. This has been going on for a LONG time. In January 2007 the government stated that it believed it was entitled to warrantless email searches and that was under Bush ...as was the Patriot Act ...as was the National Security Letter where anyone (or anything) could be subpoenaed by the government and could not tell anyone else about it. This wasn't reported widely but it finally was struck down as anti-Constitutional in March of this year!
It's time for us to wake up before it's too late!
