NSA Eavesdropping is Bad, MMM'K? 

Cross-posted from SoCal Grassroots

Bless U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor from Michigan. She has ruled that the NSA eavesdropping program is unconstitutional:
[Taylor] further declared that the program "violates the separation of powers doctrine, the Administrative Procedures Act, the First and Fourth amendments to the United States Constitution, the FISA and Title III."

She went on to say that "the president of the United States ... has undisputedly violated the Fourth in failing to procure judicial orders."
I think we need to send her a big candy heart and a bunch of flowers.

(The complete ruling can be found here.)
