From what I heard, this only applies to communications that are with foreign entities.

Could you clarify 'foreign entities'?

I email with J-1 Visa students who are coming to work for us come summer (read: tourist season). I would hate to think I've blipped on their radar for ANY reason....

I'm not really sure as I just heard it on the radio during a news break (the played a snip it from Paul Ryan explaining it). My guess is that it would be monitoring of communications between someone overseas with someone in the United States. However, I would need to read up on the legislation to be sure. As I am working at the moment, I don't really have time right now. I will try to look into it tonight.

Except that if you order a bottle of wine from Burgundy, the government then has the right to monitor your calls.

I have a right to be secure in my person, papers, and possessions and protection from warrantless searches. This violates both.

I'm not arguing that point. I was just pointing out that I had heard that the bill that was passed today had to do with foreign surveillance.

Hopefully it goes down in fiery blaze.No warrant then no collection of data. I don't give a **** if it could be used to catch drug dealers and other scum.

Vastly underreported is the hypocrisy of Democrats supporting this bill giving the executive branch unfettered access to American communications with foreign entities after denouncing Trump as mentally unstable and unsuited for the job. On the one hand Trump is Putin's puppet but let's give him authority to easdrop on Americans.

Don't want your communications to be monitored? Well, then don't communicate with Russian Spy's.

Someone should have told the Trump Family about that.

You want to know what I've got to say, ask me or get a warrant.
