Congrats to the EFF - https://www.eff.org/issues/national-security-letters
If you've been living under a rock and dont know what a SNL is basically its a letter from the FBI that says you must turn over everything about what you know about XYZ because of national security and btw you cant mention it to anyone, not press, not co-workers, not family/wife etc and if you dont turn everything over then we throw you in jail, if you talk about it with anyone, we throw you in jail.
BTW if you want to know how fucked up American thinking is at the moment check out this Orwellian double speak
"The nondisclosure requirement doesn’t constitute prior restraint of speech because recipients can be punished only after they make a prohibited disclosure, lawyers for the U.S. argued in court filings."
So did you get that....we basically have broken your constitutional rights to free speech...but we didnt break the constitution because we told you that you cant do it...before you are told you are prohibited. Hey Obama "Free and open my ass" go fuck yourself.
Is this the swing of the pendulum back to sanity, all i can say is lets hope so.
