    All they lost was the ability to gather it under a single court order. So now they have to submit twelve identical requests to twelve different courts.

    Like I said above, more work for the secretary who operates the fax machine.

    Its political grandstanding without substance. In other words, Rand Paul.
    But will they bother with the 12 court orders? For some reason I'm thinking, "No."

      Of course they will.

      That's why the bill was worded that way in the first place-wriggle room.

      You're talking ten minutes' extra work for a low-level employee.

      Its an old game: they can you can't do X to get Y, you just get Y via W.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.
