absolutely not!

Can't you see it? The whole "debate" is subtle. They are using the idea of "reform" to shift focus, and glenn didnt bicth slap piers for it. The whole discussion plants the following seed:

We need security... if we just address the system or slightly tweak around the edges then we can alleviate the privacy concerns.

Nobody discussed the many glaring potential and real issues with collecting this data. Glenn has been amazing so far, but I'm concerenes he's taking this the wrong direction-> that is 'if we could just get the right people at the NSA, we could fix it.

Don't forget he has been in favor of big government. We need to make the case for elimination, not "reform". That said, I am thankful for all Glenn and ES have done and are doing
