I'm going to beg my colleagues indulgence for cross posting for the first time. I just received an email from Glenn Greenwald, Jane Hamsher and Matt Stoller asking for signatures on a letter to be delivered to Harry Reid requesting that he honor Chris Dodd's hold on the FISA bill containing retroactive immunity for the lawbreaking telecoms who sold out our privacy rights. You can sign on here.
I've been talking a bit about point and click activism in the last couple of days. I know a lot of people think these things have no effect and have stopped participating, or feel inundated by the sheer number of requests and feel like they don't have the time to do everything. All I can say is preserving accountability and the rule of law goes to the core of what defines our country. It takes so little effort to add your name and this one is important. Please take the thirty seconds to sign on.
