Congress mistakenly gave away the Fourth Amendment

So it turns out that when Congress checked off the FISA bill, they “accidentally” opened the door to “physical searches on American soil”:

(For those of you who aren’t up on the American Constitution, its Fourth Amendment guards against “unreasonable search and seizure”.)

Of course, only whackos and extremists like Ron Paul and Mike Gravel give two tenths of a fuck about the Constitution these days anyway, so it’s not like this is going to make a difference in the long run.  Essential liberty, temporary safety, you know the drill.
