28 Senators said no to the FISA bill today.
Obama voted with the heathens to allow warrantless wiretapping and Telco Immunity.
Hillary Clinton voted no and supported Feingold and Dodd. From TPM muckraker:
Moments before the final vote, a handful of senators voted to filibuster the vote, including Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York, Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, and Tom Harkin of Iowa.
So what does that mean? It means that the nations largest telecom companies no longer have to worry about a batch of multi-million lawsuits filed by customers angered that the companies turned over their personal information to the government without a warrant.
It also means that if you are at home making an overseas phone call to a suspected terrorist, the government can monitor that call without a warrant.
Perhaps its just my usual ‘kneejerk’ reaction but I applaud Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, Patrick Leahy and Tom Harkin for standing their ground on this most heinous bullshit.
Obama can kiss my hairy ass at this point, he looks like all the other sell-outs that voted to destroy our civil rights and grant the fucking Telco’s immunity from civil lawsuits. That might also just be my usual kneejerk reaction but that said..I ain’t happy about his vote to sell the constitution and the rule of law down the fucking river.
