House Democrats Green Light Wiretapping
In more proof Democrats say one thing and do another, the House has passed revised FISA legislation that provides immunity for telecommunication companies like AT&T and Verizon that have been actively working with the federal government to perform warrant-less wiretaps on its citizens.
The good news is AT&T has announced preliminary plans to offer a new service to its customers that would allow them to "silently observe" the phone conversations of others who use the network with the fewest dropped calls. We kid because we love.
