Two prominent civil rights groups have filed a lawsuit against the National Security Agency over its program that reportedly collects the telephone records of millions of American customers of Verizon.

Every once in awhile, ACLU does something good for America...
Purely accidental but I’ll take it.
Never forget that the ACLU was founded by communists.
Discovery could get interesting.
Yes, on a positive note, it’s kinda nice to have an issue as vital as this to see who really gives a damn about their freedom. I can’t in good conscience ever rejoin the ACLU, but at least they cherish this freedom.
(Have to qualify that—only if you’re not still in the womb).
Oh I haven’t forgotten.
First time I have ever agreed with the ACLU !!!
Things must be getting bad in Lib land :-)
Especially considering the fact that the reporter says much more is coming.
What is Fienstein to do?
Strange how they are getting upset over what has happened in every communist/socialist country in the world. Did they think that it wouldn’t happen here?
I’ve repeatedly pointed out to libinlaws the historic consequences of their ideology,
and all I get is “that’s not what we support”.
WHO chose which 130,000 Americans and 2000 al Qaeda
and Moslem Brotherhood had Code Level Access to
How will the MSM continue to support the Obama regime? Will they ignore/downplay? There are now so many scandals in play that it’s difficult to keep track.
We actually need some kind of scorecard. When this is over even if Obama keeps the presidency...and that’s in real doubt...he will go down in history as one of the worst presidents. Maybe after he resigns...some in the press will begin to look into his very mysterious early life...it’s a hope anyway.
Broken clock, blind hog...insert analogy here
Broken clocks are correct twice a day.
But the ACLU is correct far less often than that. Politics really does make strange bedfellows.
It’s about time! This usually is a rallying cry from the left before anyone else so hopefully they will jump on board this time. Oddly enough I agree with the ACLU in this one
