An appeals court today found the NSA phone surveillance program unconstitutional. ReactionsÂ across the political spectrum:
From liberals: Good. We’ve been against this ever since the Bushies started it.
From libertarians/Breitbrats: Good. We are winning against the evil Obama/liberal surveillance state.
From Republican hawks: Oh noes!
Al QaedaÂ ISIS will kill us in our beds!
Usual bullshit, in other words.
FYI From Thursday evening until Sunday we’re going to be in lockdown meditate-till-you-drop mode here at the Zen Center, so I’m supposed to stay off the Internet and meditate and think not-thinking like a good zennie. I’ll pop in to clear the message queue when I can, but don’t blab.
