Stuff to say if you are drawing a blank:

Telecommunication companies already have immunity for good-faith situations: they don’t need immunity for knowingly breaking the law.

Warrantless spying is unconstitutional: the 4th Amendment requires that our privacy cannot be infringed unless government officials obtain an individualized warrant based on probable cause:

Giving criminals immunity for laws they’ve broken undermines the rule of law in our society.

According to Daily Kos, CQ is reporting that House Republicans will try to derail efforts to pass a 21 day extension of the existing surveillance law and force a vote on the Senate bill.

Also noted by Daily Kos:

“If this bad bill is jammed through the House of Representatives, it will be their fault. Call them and tell them to support the RESTORE Act without modification, and to support the 21 day extension of the current law. Tell them to stop enabling the Republicans and Bush in taking away our civil liberties.”
