FISA Petition

Ok, I'm not going to spend a lot of time on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, (the current 'compromise' version of which offers retroactive immunity to telecom companies that have broken the law in monitoring conversations, emails, etc. and grants all kinds of intrusive powers to the government going forward) under the assumption that you've read about it elsewhere. God knows you've had the opportunity to.

What I will do is include a link to a Petition to the Senate floating around the internets (one of several) and invite you to sign it. I did, and included the following comment:

This Independence Day, I'm choosing to defend the Constitution, and invite the Senate to do the same. In fact, didn't you take some kind of oath to that effect?
Holla to Russ Feingold, who's leading the legislative fight. Wisconsin represents.
