I fight against the NSA by not having a life. I'm so dull I hope to induce narcolepsy in the entire agency.

100% agree :thumbsup: I'm just sad that it took people 10 years to figure out how ridiculously intrusive the patriot act is, particularly section 215, since it got so much attention during the Bush years with the "warrantless wiretapping" investigations. Changing the standards for search and seizure from "probable cause" to "reasonable suspicion" is completely unconstitutional, as is allowing warrants to be granted from the same branch of government that wants to do the search in the first place. I also can't stand the political theatre, watching congressmen with their faux-rage at the use of the powers *they* specifically created, and re-authorized. If anyone thinks this is serious, please contact your congressmen (and women) and don't let them off the hook until they repeal this abomination.

Having said that, there is a legitimate place for a FISA court. Constitutionally, the judicial branch must be involved in allowing the executive branch to breach a person's 4th amendment protections (by issuing a warrant). FISA justices are available 24/7 for "national emergencies" and are cleared for security, which is a necessity for national security cases. However, the problems right now are that the executive branch has been granted the power to procure their own warrants without the aid of the judicial branch in certain circumstances, and the FISA rules need to seriously be updated for the new technology available in the digital age. Without clear-cut guidelines, the NSA, FBI and even CIA will overreach as much as they feel they can get away with.
