    Probably will go nowhere but all of these distractions might keep them distracted from screwing up this country...

    Or maybe these are their distractions to keep us from looking behind the curtain..

    Former Justice Department prosecutor Larry Klayman amended an existing lawsuit against Verizon and a slew of Obama administration officials Monday to make it the first class-action lawsuit in response to the publication of a secret court order instructing Verizon to hand over all phone records of millions of American customers on an "ongoing, daily basis."
    Klayman told U.S. News he will file a second class-action lawsuit Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia targeting government officials and each of the nine companies listed in a leaked National Security Agency slideshow as participants in the government's PRISM program.
    According to the slideshow, the PRISM program allows government agents direct, real-time access to the servers of nine major tech companies, including AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, PalTalk, Skype, Yahoo! and YouTube.

    The class-action lawsuit against Verizon says the defendants violated customers' "reasonable expectation of privacy, free speech and association, right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures and due process rights."
    "This case challenges the legality of Defendants' participation and conduct in a secret and illegal government scheme to intercept and analyze vast quantities of domestic telephone communications," says the lawsuit against Verizon, which also names as defendants President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, NSA director Keith Alexander and federal judge Roger Vinson, the FISA court judge who approved the leaked April order.

    It's nothing but a circus. You're right, it won't go anywhere.

    I find it amazing how upset folks are about the recent "revelations" about the data gathering, when most of them divulge far more information on social networking sites every day, not to mention the data that they gladly allow Google and others to gather on them every single day. Some people remind me of my geese - they just like to squawk and strut about ruffling up their feathers.

    The difference is consent. sex with consent is a sharing of more than fluids. Sex without consent, is a violation that should get the attacker killed. (If not in the act, then later)

    So, how long before the attorney (Larry Klayman) Vince Fosters? Got to admit he's got balls the size of watermelons to include everyone he did directly as a defendant.

    You don't get arrested for Constitutional Violations. At most you get told "Naughty naughty Barry, Don't do it again. At least don't let any one find out until AFTER the coming Elections!"
