    Just perhaps we might reconsider all of those American military bases defending Western Europe against a non existent USSR?

    I was channel surfing between CNN and France24 TV (my landlord put a big dish on top of my apartment building).


    CNN says the traitor Snowden has made the world a much more dangerous place because the Europeans are sharing less data with the US now.


    France24 TV said Merkel and Hollande knew all along, but when Der Speigel and Le Monde reported on what Snowden released about US spying on Germany and France, Merkel and Hollande had to feign outrage for the benefit of their voters, but they won’t actually do anything any different.


    Believe whom you will.

    Gotta say, sure you gather intelligence on your friends as well as your enemies, but there is a line and the US has crossed it. Obama come on man, think how you would feel if someone were tapping your Blackberry.

    No real support here.

    NSA right or wrong, but my NSA! Funniest was on Bill Mahar. He said that Germany will not have these Facist tactics. (Tee Hee!)

    So you wouldn’t mind if a relative or a close friend was to read all your eMails and browser history without you knowing it, huh?

    Well, that’s one “interesting” take on it. The fact they all had interlocking defense pacts that got activated by the actions of one lunatic had little to do with it. Right?

    Good call as the whole situation has the same feel the movie did.

    All those that think Obama`s not being tapped hold up your hands. Not many there.

    Same stuff’s been going on for decades, but with the ’media" the only difference is the fact Obama is now President. Just a little more proof the “liberal mass media” in the US, is a myth.


    Nathan Hale was a patriotic hero. Every hear the story off the Trojan horse? Spying and intelligence gathering, on friend AND foe, is as old as humans forming alliances, or maybe walking upright.

    As much as so called “liberals” complained back when the so called “Patriot Act” was enacted and so called “conservatives” complain now, the sad truth is both Republicans and Democrats voted for the expanded powers to spy on the citizenry. Almost no congressman voted against it. Take a good look at the voting records. If the congressmen you voted for voted for these expanded powers, then you are partly you blame. If you continue to vote for those congressmen and they do nothing to curtail those aforementioned powers, you are to blame for the continuation.

    BTW, same goes for the deficit. Take a good look at the pork barrel spending your favorite congressman slips into bills.

    ‘This is what happens when Obama invades the privacy of others.’
    -
    Once again, for all the so-called ‘conservatives’, EVERY issue revolves around hatred of Obama. No issue is considered on its own merits.
    -
    Whatever spying ‘Obama’ did would be absolutely OKAY if only it had been a Republican doing it.

    I was against the Patriot Act then and I was against its extension and expansions of power. Part of the reason I oppose it is, as you said, powers are rarely given up once they’re obtained.

    ^ Not a big Reagan fan (after all, the first thing he did as governor of California was to RAISE sales taxes by 25%!), but I think he’s generally correct in that quote.
    -
    I don’t remember him dismantling any California OR Federal government programs.
    -
    There may have been a couple, and maybe you can cite them, but I can’t remember any.
    -
    If he eliminated any in California, Mickey might know.
