FISA Fight: Last Chance to Speak Up

Chris Dodd in my inbox:

Do you remember the excitement when we first stopped retroactive immunity in the Senate last year?

We earned that moment together -- both the victory and the feeling that we had made a difference.

That hard-earned success felt so good because collectively we made our voices heard in the well of the Senate and in offices across DC.

On the eve of another vote, it's time for us to speak up again.

Please use the call tool created by our friends at Firedoglake and ask your Senators to vote "YES" on the Dodd-Feingold Amendment to strip retroactive immunity from FISA
If it goes the way it looks to be going tomorrow, we'll never know what really happened, and a sweeping federal grant of immunity will override privacy efforts even on the state level.

It's not too late to change this, but you'd have to pick up your phone (which is probably bugged already, because you're a blogger) and call a Senator (who is more concerned about phone companies than you) and complain.

And I know how bloggers hate to complain...

Make a call today in the name of protecting our Constitution.


  1. This is a great reminder, jason!

    We've got to get the word out on this!

  2. Agreed. Tomorrow's Senate debate really will be a deciding factor in the future of balancing national security and our right to privacy and an open and transparent government.
