The Upside of the FISA Amendments Act
I admit that we have been a little bit down in the mouth, bitter here at Irregular Times lately. How could we not be, what with the passage of the FISA Amendments Act, and Barack Obama jumping on the Homeland Insecurity bandwagon?
Sigh. I’m glad that I ran into someone online who could show me the brighter side of the FISA Amendments Act: We’ll finally be able to get our government to listen to us!

“We can look at the upside – Funny, how everytime you call a gov. agency, you get put on indefinete hold, or disconnected – When we contact them, THEY don’t want to know what we are saying – Think of it as our own RED LINE to the Prez, now we can just call any number and bitch at Bush. We should have a national Pick Up the Phone and Bitch at Bush Day.”
I love this idea – and I think that we could have a series of FISA spying holidays. How about Get To Know Your Government Eavesdropper Day? Just pick up the phone or log on to the Internet and say “Hi!”
Yes, they’re violating your constitutional rights, but that’s no reason not to be friendly!
