House passes bill to end bulk collection of phone records by NSAhe U.S. House sent a bipartisan message Thursday, voting to end the practice of bulk collection of phone records conducted by the National Security Agency. The surveillance of such "metadata" was revealed last year by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, prompting public disapproval and congressional anger from lawmakers who said the intelligence agency was not forthcoming with Congress about the scope of their surveillance efforts.The USA FREEDOM Act, sponsored by Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., passed 303-121 with 179 Republicans and 124 Democrats in support. Of the 121 lawmakers opposed, 51 were Republicans and 70 were Democrats. Sensenbrenner played an instrumental role in shaping the federal government's post-9/11 national security infrastructure.

I'm 100% confident the NSA and federal government will completely obey the law. I'm so relieved my phone and records are private again!

He will just executive order it back to the way it was.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
