Put blame where it belongs - an admin cover-up

Verizon is not the villain here. It is an administration that wanted to muzzle the press and coverup its misdeeds. Verizon merely responded to legal demands by the justice department for info. Trying to spread the blame and muddy the waters is just an attempt to let the real villains off the hook.

But if Verizon and a multitude of other companies believed in the law of 'warrant please', plus 'lets see if this warrant you finally got is actually valid', people wouldn't continue to be illegally searched and illegally fondled since Dubyas 9/11 B.S.

If the corporation is then punished for refusing to give out unwarranted private information like its raining, then they must purposely publish that information. But then the catch22 of how the corporations bribes to the government may no longer be honored for a few months.

Patriot Act is better known as Martial Law. Different name but still a crime against the people.
Once you let government do something, its really hard to stop it years later as law enforcement and people who think they are law enforcement since they got a uniform and a shiny badge grows accustomed to violating people in the name of paranoia.

Meanwhile certain unhinged members of congress and the senate keep asking questions of Administration appointees and Administration officers who can't answer the questions due to the answers being a National secret. Leaks from morons in elected office are so fun to investigate.
Paranoid conspiracy nuts on National Defense and People who think the world is 6,000 years old who are on Science committees. what a clusterf*ck.

Verizon is a bad guy here. They had the right to request clarification, and do a little more to protect the privacy of their customers. I agree that the justice department is the real villain here, but let's not muddy the waters and let Verizon off the hook.

But, I thought the press was all liberal and did that stuff on it's own?

Right?

Hmmm. Not in Office, at the moment. So, unlikely.

Yea - right... I can think of many other admins worse - several in fact.

Thanks for the laugh - I needed it.

Were you saying the same thing when the previous administration was also doing the same? I'm betting no.

The dolts in the previous admin were pikers compared to the Chicago machine, but way to deflect.

Don't forget that carriers charge anywhere from $500-1500 per record so this is a huge profit center for them.

And this is the fruition of policies supporting illegal wiretaps and the retroactive immunity..... Which you were quite a champion of on these forums....
