    Please, remember that the current electronic surveillance was strongly support by TWO presidents, one from each of our two major parties. And they need this information to keep us safe. They have saved us from many terrorist attacks, but these thwarted attacks must be Top Secret, so they can’t tell us anything about any of them, but we know we can trust them, since neither Bush, jr nor Obama has ever told a single lie.


    Actually, the Senate voted in ‘99 that, if the US President says it, then it’s the Truth, no matter what the DNA on the blue dress says. So it’s US law that Bush, jr and Obama couldn’t possibly have ever told a single lie while they held the office of POTUS. They have the Big Picture, and know many things that we don’t. And if they know this is all necessary to keep us all safe, who are we to question our great and (under US law) infallible government leaders?

    Despite your well intentioned sarcasm, it might just be true that we as Americans need the NSA to indeed help keep up safe from the many enemies we have in the world at large (whether we ourselves have created those enemies, or not). I know this is a more conservative attitude, but that does not make it any the less true anyway. And to hamstring those very people that we depend upon for that safety with dealing slowly through courts just is not reasonable. This is particularly true for the more modern forms of human communications, such as the internet with its many social networks. I would also like to think that the NSA is intelligent enough to actually be able to tell the difference between those that are a genuine threat, and those that are innocent of same. After all, that is supposedly why they exist in the first place!


    And it is not reasonable to expect the president (any president, past, present , or future) to tell the general public just who those threats are. Good Grief, that should be a given, and has nothing to do with a president lying or not lying, again, any president!!

    Since all the news about the NSA listening to everything,Al Quieda has stopped using cell phones.All the chatter from Islamic jihad jerks has gone quiet.What are you democrat wizards going to do now that we have no phone talk about where or who they are thinking of blowing up next?Maybe it will be your kids school instead of one in Isreal.Maybe they are looking at fertilizer plants in a town near you.We won’t hear them talking about that sort of thing now thanks to your hero slimball Snowden.

    “I do believe that George Jr. (and his handler Cheney) loved this country.”
    HAHAHAHAHA!
    If they loved it, they wouldn’t have screwed it over so bad. They love their one-tenth of one percent of it, perhaps.

    Lets see – the patriot act was created by a republican house of rep. member, ratified by the senate and signed into law by the \then president……uhh Bush. It was due to have a bunch of things sunset out (2005) but only some of the language was changed. In 2006 a bill was passed by congress basically restoring the act to its original language and passed to the president to be vetoed or signed into law. Bush signed it into law. It is interesting that the current prez is the one blamed.

    The problem with something as the patriot act is it is a lose lose thing. War was basically declared on us on 9/11 and we are still at war. After 9/11 there were those that stated the gov did not do enough to protect us. Then, after the act, we hear complaints that we are losing out “freedom”. Those that have issues with the attempt as security should ask their grandfathers about the security actions in wwII.

    @CDK

    JE Hoover was once highly respected as an incorruptible head of the FBI who went after organized crime in this country. What he became later in his career was something else entirely. But what that would have to do with my post about the NSA, I really do not know.

    If I could, I’d rather ask Jack Kirby.
