Simple compromise to get the spying bill passed
I seriously suggest a horse swap to get this bill passed.
Give the telecoms blanket immunity in return for George Bush agreeing to remain open to serving one year in jail if the ACLU and the nasty trial lawyers can successfully convict him of being a party to breaking our nation's privacy laws.
You take the money out of the equation and the American people get their just reward, a pound of George Bush's flesh.
Simple, expedient and fair.
Or you can be a bit more adventurous by also making the telecoms sign a statement that they will keep their greedy mitts off the current neutrality provisions of internet protocols.
