07:32 am - Telecom Immunity up for vote again
Telecom immunity is up for a vote in the House of Representatives again today. Please call your representative and ask that they not grant immunity. The telecom immunity issue is all about making sure that we never actually find out the scope and extent to which we're spied on. If they really wanted to reward these companies for doing their patriotic today they'd indemnify them (basically promise to soak up any damage awards), not grant immunity which will shut down the court cases and the resultant discovery that has already revealed many interesting things.
Please call your representative right now. The House had a backbone a couple of weeks ago. Let your representative know how much that was appreciated and ask for the same level of spine again.
