Some Good News At Last

A Federal Judge has ruled the NSA's Metadata Collection unconstitutional.

The Judge argued that the technology we have now far exceeds that of 1979, and that the precedent set by Smith v Maryland no longer applies in the age of the internet and cell phone wire-tapping. I would argue that even Smith v Maryland itself is unconstitutional because I believe that any information gathering obtained without a warrant counts as an "unreasonable search and seizure."

So, it looks like we may be putting an end to the War on Privacy. Provided that this decision is upheld on appeal.

Some more good news, Scott Lively is running for governor of Massachusetts. This will be provide me with much amusement over the next year.
