Spying, schmying...who cares?

Looks like not many people are upset about government surveilance of their private affairs.

Sixty-four percent (64%) of Americans believe the National Security Agency (NSA) should be allowed to intercept telephone conversations between terrorism suspects in other countries and people living in the United States. A Rasmussen Reports survey found that just 23% disagree.Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Americans say they are following the NSA story somewhat or very closely.
At least they don't make a connection between the Big Brother approach to security and a more controlled approach.

Meantime supporters of the Patriot Act and it's spinoff effects are having a great time being snarky about those who raise concerns.

Keep those cards and letters coming, folks...
Er, I forgot. We don't do that any more, do we?
How about Keep those pings, e-mails and phone messages coming, folks!
