    An excellent depiction of the real history of oppressive invasion of privacy, and destruction of rights, by omnipotent authority (right wing).

    Times have not changed much… The chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Mike Rogers, said, “if you don’t know your privacy is being violated, then it can’t be violated, right?” to three experts testifying in the NSA probe. Two agreed with him! The third not so much, suggesting they if you commit a crime and are not caught is it alright?
    Funny story, Mike Rogers’ wife, Kristi, was the CEO of Aegis, a company that deals in international intelligence. Aegis has a ten billion dollar contract with the government. She now sits on the board of Qualys, a network security company.

    Many spouses and other family members of our elected leaders have found working in and around Washington to be very lucrative.

    Note that, back in the days when snooping was put on 3×5 cards, the people who broke into an FBI branch office and stole some of those 3×5 cards were careful to deny everything until last week.


    Snowden, to make sure he was believed, made his identity clear, so everyone would know that he wasn’t making this up, that he really stole evidence that proves the US is snooping on everyone, everywhere, 24/7/366 (I don’t want to leave out 29 Feb, just because it doesn’t have time to come by every single year). The traitor. Everyone was MUCH happier not knowing. Al Qaeda, instead of sending cleartext, will now use an NSA cipher, and opening those back doors is costing the US taxpayers money, for which every US voter and taxpayer should blame Snowden.


    And those who are not guilty of SOMETHING could not possibly object to their government watching over them 24/7/366. Most US newspapers agree and condemn the Manchester Guardian for publishing Snowden, when every loyal US newspaper would have turned Snowden and all his evidence over to the US government:


    it would have been much better if Snowden had complained to his superior and let the US teach him the Spanish he says he wants to learn, starting with the word desaparecido.

    A right wing police state in the making.

    Don’t want right, left, broken or any other kind of police state.

    It has taken decades to get this far, and they aren’t finished yet.

    This reminds me of a quote from Benjamin Franklin from the movie “1776” (and I’m paraphrasing): “Revolutions are only illegal in the third person: their revolution. They are always legal in the first person: our revolution.” Suddenly I’m thinking: “If they are against us, they are ‘they’ but if they are for us, they are ‘us.’”

    The elites, the Plutocrats and their many hangers on in the military, religion (Christian) and even entertainment.
