Wondering if religion plays a role in different opinions on such topics.3 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago
Given the inadequate answers I've been receiving. I've come to the conclusion Yahoo Answers is nothing more than a kiddy ground that entertains the outcast teen, who is now hidden in the corner of a dark room with black eye liner on. Crying himself to sleep as he jacks off to a picture of Dawkins. Hoping his friends never discover the truth.20 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago

There have been several court cases where the courts declared it illegal and unconstitutional.
-ACLU vs NSA
-Al-Haramain charity case
-Clapper vs Amnesty International
-Secret FISA Case
In these four cases, the courts ruled what the NSA was doing as illegal and/or unconstitutional. In the first three cases, the decision was reversed on appeals not on the content. It was reversed because of the legal principle that somebody standing had to bring the case. Meaning the Court asked them how they were effected by this rule. But the plaintiffs couldn't prove they were effected because they couldn't prove they were spied upon. Now because of Edward Snowden's leak, we now know we were all spied upon.So when politicians try to say "Don't worry about it, I checked with the courts", well you checked with the courts and they largely said no, you got off on a legal technicality, that you no longer have the protection of.
Even the Director of National Intelligence admitted what the NSA done was "Unreasonable under the Fourth Amendment."
We shouldn't simply assume Snowden's disclosures are about a controversial but legal NSA program, as NSA defenders and Obama loyalists assert. Instead it's quite possible they may help definitively prove the illegality of the surveillance operations.12 AnswersPolitics7 years ago

Since I question Richard Dawkins (I asked 2 questions about the man in the past 5 hours), I'm apparently obsessed. Yet, all the atheist do on here is question God. This must mean they're obsessed over Christianity?11 AnswersReligion & Spirituality8 years ago
