I had always learned that there were three branches of government under our constitution: legislative, judicial and executive. When did the NSA become a branch unto itself that ignores the constitution? Are our elected representatives so spineless or ignorant that they don’t care that parts of the Bill of Rights are being blatantly abused everyday?

We badmouth other nations that have secret police forces and yet our own government is doing the same thing, only on a worldwide scale.

The president’s supposedly “open government” sure got the door slammed shut in a hurry.
