Supreme Court allows NSA to continue looking at telephone records for now

Washington (CNN) - The U.S. Supreme Court will allow the National Security Agency's surveillance of domestic telephone communication records to continue for now.

The justices without comment Monday rejected an appeal from a privacy rights group, which claimed a secret federal court improperly authorized the government to collect the electronic records.

    "Our days as a democratic republic are numbered. It is only a matter of time. "

    End times END TIMES!!!! THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!

    Just more projection: the only entity whose time is ticking down is the GOP/Teatrolls. Their worst nightmare of demographic shifts slowly eroding their political viability are driving a massive fever dream about the death of Amurika. It's nothing more than them declaring "Amurika is no longer the white-controlled country I want it to be and I'm unwilling to change and adapt, so that means it's dead to me."

    Say true conservative.....when you said that "Some of us still believe in the law and we follow it.." were you just referring to this law or all laws? Because I see you guys have a really hard time with the AHA. Or is it only laws that you are told to like.

    "close Gitmo....imrove our standing in the world.....I guess he lied aout those things too"

    Hard to claim he lied about something he tried in good faith to do but was blocked by Congress. But that's ok, we know that the GOP/Teatrolls have been deeply engaged in a game of trying to cause problems and failures and damage to things so they can just turn around and blame it on Obama. It's not like they've done a good job of hiding it from anyone paying attention. The MSM does a fairly good job of hiding it on their behalf from those who pay only cursory attention though.

    The American people have no privacy at all anymore.
    Sure they do... they have a right to a private abortion.

    True conservative....why don't you mention the bills that passed the Senate that the House is sitting on? Or maybe the record number of filibusters set by republican Senators? ZERO negotiation from conservatives.

    And while we're talking bout Obamacare, why don't we get video of the republican presidential nominee from 2012 saying that Romneycare would be great for the nation right before saying that it wouldn't be.
