Sometimes it seems like I am.  The so-called “compromise bill” to update FISA for 2008 passed the House today, and nobody is fussing too much about it.  I’m starting to wonder if other people should be as frightened as I am of this thing.  In spite of the troubling fact that the bill grants retroactive immunity to telecom firms that helped the government spy on their customers without search warrants, I heard nothing about this on the radio today, and nobody I’ve spoken with really even knows what this bill means.  Is this weird to anybody else?  Why aren’t we speaking out against this?  Why doesn’t anyone know what’s going on, even?
