The Yankee version of the Ukrainian uprising is a bit more civil. They are taking their government to court in an effort to end the runaway spying program by the National Security Agency (NSA).
The NSA is supposed to protect we the people from foreign and domestic terror. In the quest of the bureaucracy to keep us safe, the agency has become, itself, a danger.
The question persists: Whose method will be most effective? That of the Ukrainians? Or of the Americans?

A new class-action claim against President Obama and the National Security Agency’s spying on Americans could end up with 100 million or more plaintiffs, according to lawyer Larry Klayman, who earlier won a judgment in federal court that the NSA program likely is unconstitutional.
Klayman filed the new claim this week in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in an effort to speed up court proceedings.
Klayman, founder of FreedomWatch, is fighting the NSA’s telephone-call tracking program in federal court in Washington, where a judge ruled the government’s actions are “almost Orwellian.”
He announced late Thursday that the new case was filed to streamline work on the earlier cases, which are pending before Judge Richard J. Leon.
Klayman has filed a petition for review that would allow the cases to leapfrog intermediate courts and go directly to the U.S. Supreme Court to determine whether the massive and indiscriminate collection of data by the federal government violates the Fourth Amendment.
