That court reply is also cringe worthy

the court said ... that the government’s “efforts to protect national security should not be frustrated by the courts.”

Which is the whole point of courts. ... Wow

The Yahoo ruling, from 2008, shows the company argued that the order violated its users’ Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. The court called that worry “overblown.”

“Notwithstanding the parade of horribles trotted out by the petitioner, it has presented no evidence of any actual harm, any egregious risk of error, or any broad potential for abuse,” the court said, adding that the government’s “efforts to protect national security should not be frustrated by the courts.”

Wow. That's entirely backwards from how the Constitution reads. So now they can systematically violate our human and constitutional rights and a corporation that doesn't fully represent our interests has to prove that it harms us in a secret court out of the public's eye? Wow. Amerika fuk yeah!! I don't recall the Constitution saying that harm needed proving! Rather it says these are inalienable rights.

If many of us are right in that nine one one was grossly misrepresented to us, that makes all this that much more more absurd. Beyond absurd.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
