I'm going to be asking all the Internet providers and all of the phone companies.
Ask your -- -- customers to join me in a class action lawsuit if we get ten million Americans saying we don't want our phone records look at.
And then maybe somebody awake up and say things will change in Washington either if you look at I was sent around Paul wants a class action suit against the federal government is looking for ten million signatures Eric -- he's via.
I -- if I picked -- he'll get one for me my wife has rising.
We'll sign that they ago I got Verizon Center the look on your exercise -- -- on a second if I -- you know what government.
I think it's okay for the government to go after that information about a lot of people if it's the pursuit of terrorists I'll give -- back.
Degree of privacy to protect myself against terrorists I'll do it voluntarily I'll do it and but I think this government is going way too far collected far too much gone believable and you say -- I agree.
But that's how we set a minute -- in the -- Stewart.
Now all of a sudden it's they've gone to core courses government -- -- if I listen to Rand Paul he said while he's right.
They did they went they went too far the patriot -- If I have a suspicion about someone a person a group.
Either or terrorists or doing something wrong.
You can go ahead surveil -- you can listen to what what they're doing you can -- the phone records find out where that -- -- email.
It was originally supposed to be be for international.
I correspondents whether it's phone call and email.
They've changed it that doesn't -- -- the courts have given them a lot more leeway but the problem is with the -- Obama administration is down with the NSA now says.
Everybody we want to hear we want all the data -- will figure out what's right what's wrong and that becomes that the overreach.
I don't think that mr.
Snowden did the right thing I don't think Edwards Snowden said I'm -- -- be a whistle blower I'm gonna let everyone know what's going on.
I think you broke the law he broke his oath.
He did things the wrong way he could -- contacted congress -- United States and stood up and said this I don't think this is right and maybe got the -- change.
What he did -- I think is wrong.

I think -- will have an impact on the Obama agenda specifically Obama can.
Because the collecting always health information and other trust the government without information in light of these experts agree agree I'm just trying to feel where are you OK with what they did you not okay what did it.
I'm not okay with what -- -- because they don't -- -- -- -- -- but the point is that lost my trust.
That some governments let me let's put this question or he -- -- -- -- said terrorism.
-- -- would you be OK with them a -- all Muslims.
Great would you be OK from -- certain mosques is what I'm -- with -- my producers say it's a slippery slope either you're okay with them surveilling.
Or -- not if it.
That the put them what they with a cable Telecom finally that puts but they had a court -- yes they do they got a quarter for this is what I'm fine with the terrorist in Yemen.

Because they've pinpointed who they're going after.
What the NSA did was they said you know what.
I'm not sure who we're going after we're gonna take this whole three billion calls it and -- to see if we thought we -- data mine aquarius you couldn't find something.
And that's the slippery slope where -- go from.
Yes you -- support terrorism we want to keep safety but you've also violated one -- -- -- -- -- on how would you draw the line I think you draw the line rebuke have to when you notify the court you say specifically this is what we're looking for.
You want to look for somebody wanted to take.
The west side Manhattan because we think someone is on the west side Manhattan then maybe you have a case to say I'll take some people it and maybe we.
-- Extend -- veil of of a lot of surveillance over people who may not be.
Specifically targeted yet they will be their data will be mind.
But you have to be more specific interest -- it would take all phone calls from everybody but our goal lead this would Wear the agendas.
I think the agenda gets hugs because of this bottle rather thing though that's my bottom lost another week another scandal.
OK another weakness and Eric welcome back to a new woody checkbox if you're gonna what this week's historic stone has because I have no color thanks -- -- --
