It's several years too late to moan about the "loss of rights" indicated by the perfectly legal request by the Justice Department for Associated Press phone records. We willingly gave up most of our rights when the Patriot Act was passed in 2001.
In exchange for "safety," we gave up most of what we fought for during the last 200 years. Remember that the next time a president pushes through a rights-robbing law. This is not the president who did that.
