The Obama Administration did something remarkable recently, not only did they defend and uphold the NSA Wiretapping policy (the one that means the government can listen in to any conversation, anytime, without a warrant) but they one-uped the Bush Administration!

The Bush Administration always claimed that even if you couldn't sue the Telecomms (a bill Obama voted for even when he said he wouldn't) you could at least sue the government. Now the Obama Administration says that you can't sue the government either. You had no 4th Amendment rights under Bush, and you have even fewer under the Obama government.

So let's review, you can't sue the government that took your rights away, and you can't sue the machinery that they are using to take your rights away.

Just because the new king is better than the old king, doesn't mean he isn't a king, and it certainly doesn't mean that you are free.
