Telco Morons

The dumbest thing I've heard the telcos say in regards to turning over customer data to the government, quoted from The Washington Post: "The company said it does not determine the requests' legality or necessity because to do so would slow efforts to save lives in criminal investigations....Verizon and AT&T said it was not their role to second-guess the legitimacy of emergency government requests."

Yep, you got that right. It's NOT your role to determine the legality of requests. THAT'S WHY WE HAVE A COURT SYSTEM THAT ISSUES WARRANTS FOR INFORMATION, MORONS.

Idiotic, yes, but not surprising, given that most people believe you're not patriotic unless you nod your head to every asinine thing required to do in the name of stoppin dem terrists.
