You want to know what I've got to say, ask me or get a warrant.
Or don't talk to foreign terrorists or members of the GRU.

True but the 5th paragraph states;
Quote:
t was designed to spy on foreign citizens living outside the U.S. and specifically bars the targeting of American citizens or anyone residing in the U.S. But critics say the program also sweeps up the electronic data of innocent Americans who may be communicating with foreign nationals, even when those foreigners aren't suspected of terrorist activity.
So people like me who have family overseas get caught up in their spying...

So I let them know my feelings on thI]s topic..[/I]

Ever heard of the Resistance? It is a Democrat movement built on hatred of Trump, oppose everything he tries to do and destroy him personally.

Pointing out the hypocrisy of the Democrat led Resistance members in Congress is not hate, it is fact. Of course anything that even hints at criticism of the brave defenders of democracy will never be tolerated.

If you think I'm making the call from my U S home, get a warrant.

While you are waiting for the judge, grab a copy of the Constitution and read it. It's not that difficult to understand.

Exactly. Not just those with family abroad, but anyone communicating for any reason outside the country.

My SIL still has family in the Philippines, speaks/texts/emails with them regularly.

While I understand that both sides of a communication may be picked up, someone is going to end up being 'violated'.....

Unless you are calling a terrorist you wont be picked up. The only way they would monitor you specifically is if they obtained a warrant through the FISA court to do so.

That's what happened to members of the Trump Campaign remember?


I thought terrorism was the scariest thing to Conservatives? Isn't that why you want to ban all muslims from entering the country?
