If he's a Democrat, Republicans unilaterally oppose it "for Patriotism." If he's a Republican, Republicans unilaterally support it until President Obama supports it, then immediately work to destroy their own bill.

Whoever wins, we'd be better off with xenomorphs and predators.

This is the same guy who introduced PIPA of SOPA/PIPA infamy.  The use of the hero tag is severe stretch.

So the sunset date on collecting data is two years shorter but still 2 years away?  And as an added coincidence, it is AFTER the next midterm election when a bunch of new congressmen can change it back.

Someone asked me why I was not more outraged by this whole thing.  My response to him was that (tin foil hat time) I assumed the government had been doing this for years at least beginning with the passage of the Patriot Act, if not well before.  It is hard to get wound up about something 10 years after it started.  If this was a new bill being passed I would be more vocal but, quite frankly, it has been going on since at least Bush, if not Clinton, and there has been no difference in the way I act.  If the gov't wants to review my extensive history on youporn or espn, they are free to do so.  The only other thing they might find is my wierd Netflix viewing habits, but since the people at Netflix probably already are laughing at me, the gov't added in to that is not going to bother me.
