Well, this is gonna be good.

Man my headline was better and it hasn't even been rejected yet.

Sad face

"Let them enforce it."
 
2013-12-16 03:41:03 PM
Is this really a newsflash? The judge didn't actually halt the program, just told the Federal government to justify it.
 
2013-12-16 03:41:07 PM
OK, so......let's let Snowden come home now with no charges filed?
 
2013-12-16 03:41:18 PM
NSA: "Ah man, now we have to stop! (LOL)"
 
2013-12-16 03:41:49 PM
Well I'm sure they'll shut the whole thing down now and call it quits.

Because I'm a gullible idiot.
 
2013-12-16 03:41:53 PM
To which the NSA's lead counsel was heard to reply; "So?"
 
2013-12-16 03:41:54 PM
As we speak, the NSA is looking at his web traffic to see if he trolls the gay hookup section of Craigslist, or likes to view teenage barely legal Pr0n.  He'll change his mind quick.

After the blackmailing of course.....
 
2013-12-16 03:42:59 PM
Nice knowing you, Judge.
 
2013-12-16 03:43:10 PM
They'll just go back to the good old days of listening without benefit of any oversight or warrants because Communism, Drugs, Terrorism, or whatever else.
 
2013-12-16 03:43:12 PM
Good.
 
2013-12-16 03:43:20 PM
But we're not interesting enough for them to care about! They can't be collecting our data because we're so uninteresting.
 
2013-12-16 03:43:31 PM
Called it.
 
2013-12-16 03:43:55 PM
It's not like the constitution ever prevented the NSA from doing anything in the past.
 
2013-12-16 03:43:59 PM
Well, that settles that.
 
2013-12-16 03:44:42 PM
Well I am sure everything will be better now!!
 
2013-12-16 03:44:47 PM
Well that will stop them.

I was coming to submit one too. But to be fair..and honest..this is probably better than what I would have submitted.

/unlike the person who stole my cbs headline. You know who you are.
 
2013-12-16 03:45:02 PM
So, they have to go back to the old method of paying/forcing the cell carriers to give up the data that they were mining from customers from the day they signed service contracts?


Net result:  No change

Nabb1: Good.


Good.

I blame Bush, the republicans and the democrats that went along with the 'Patriot Act' that created the climate that legitimized this atrocious behavior. It's about time this got reeled in.  The only problem now is that there is pretty much no way to enforce this.

I prefer the term extortion, the 'X' makes it sound cool.
 
2013-12-16 03:46:16 PM
Good

Any ruling that protects the 4th amendment is good with me! Make 'em get warrants from regular judges in open court if they want the warrants that bad.

/ I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't do anything that would be embarrassing if it were to be reported on in the evening news.

Oooohh, that Snowden's really gonna get it now!

As long as they don't start sharing that information with corporations in loads called Fusion Centers to help curb protest against corporate malfesience. Because that would just be crypto fascist.

Nabb1: Good.


This.
 
2013-12-16 03:47:39 PM
There's a whole lot of 'That!' going on in this thread.  Like the gov't gives two shiats.
 
2013-12-16 03:47:45 PM
I was told that what the NSA does is not unconstitutional.
 
2013-12-16 03:47:54 PM

groppet: Well that will stop them.

This will go the same way the NYPD stop and frisk case went. The judge will be called out for having some made up bias. The case will be retried with a different judge and the NSA will get the outcome that they want.

rinse repeat
 
2013-12-16 03:48:34 PM
Next newsflash: NSA becomes a corporation and can now do whatever it wants.

Well, if the Supreme Court ruled that the surveillance is unconstitutional, then presumably it could never be admitted into evidence in any trial in the country.  That wouldn't be the end of the world from the Administration's perspective probably (they probably are more interested in using it for military intelligence), but I'd think it would have some impact.
 
2013-12-16 03:48:39 PM
It's interesting reading a fox news article after reading a politico one and how much information the Faux News one omits.  Such as the whole "not ruling on the constitutionality" part.

The drone is on its way.

mainstreet62: OK, so......let's let Snowden come home now with no charges filed?


How about no?

He did something very wrong and should be jailed for it.

We'll just have to nerve staple it.
 
2013-12-16 03:50:20 PM
This changes nothing.
 
2013-12-16 03:50:40 PM
So lets say someone is arrested because they said something on the phone that was flagged by the NSA. Couldn't he get off on the fact that there was no (initial) warrant for it?
 
2013-12-16 03:50:48 PM
ZOMG, we are all going to die now in a terrorist attack. That is what the guy on 60 minutes said...

Oh, change? That's gonna take years.

This allows for the slight possibility for change. Maybe.

Funny how I thought people were innocent until proven guilty in court.

Judge rules NSA collection illegal and therefore must destroy the information collected about the two plaintiffs.

BFD.
