Put Yourself in the Government’s Shoes

…Just bear in mind that those shoes might cost a good $16 trillion, give or take. So, not surprisingly, the ever-steadfast State apologist Lindsey Graham doesn’t balk at the idea of a secret, warrantless NSA seizure of phone records: “I am a Verizon customer,” he recently said. “You can have my phone number, and put […]
