    Anyone who watches the documentary “Castle” knows that Al Qaeda has a nuclear arsenal larger than Israel, India, and Pakistan combined. And every week (during prime time TV) they set one to go off in a major US city. Fortunately, by using Prism and Boundless Informant, the NSA, the DHS, and the FBI have stopped every one of these thermonuclear attacks. Of course, this all has to be classified Top Secret, so the American public won’t panic, plus we can’t let Al Qaeda know that we knew about every one of their unsuccessful thermonuclear attacks, since that would give them valuable information to use in their next one.


    Fortunately, as the US media have all agreed, we desperately need Prism and Boundless Informant and every other government program that keeps track of everything about everybody, or we’d have had a thermonuclear explosion every week (during prime time TV) destroying hundreds of US cities.


    So the overwhelming majority of Americans, who rely on the US press instead of conspiracy theory sites, strongly support the US surveillance.


    And we can all speculate on what might have happened if J. Edgar and LBJ had had this. They forced the US Congress to do whatever they wanted, but with Prism and Boundless Informant they could have threatened to reveal all of Adoph’s letters to Eva and all of Ho’s missives and forced their surrender years earlier than was required without these modern, effective tools.


    (The reason Prism and Boundless Informant missed Boston is because they had to concentrate on those attempted thermonuclear attacks. And on the activities of the members of Congress who have the power to shut them down.)

    What we need to do is educate our populous, particularly the tea-bagging conservatives, so they would not be saying such stupid, and hateful things….against our President..

    What the heck is a Lier?
    One who lies down; one who rests or remains, as in concealment. There were liers in a ambush against him. – Josh. viii. 14.

    You know, a lier.
    .
    Onguard is of the belief the President just lies around all day.
    This is in conflict with onguard’s opinion the President plots against his fellow Americans all day.
    .
    Someone is very confused about their feelings towards the President.

    What’s truly amazing is all the flap about spying internally under this administration, that totally ignores the activities of Nixon’s, Reagan’s, Bush 41, Bush 43’s, and yes, even Clinton’s folks. Interesting also that the press is so focused on “scandals” of Clinton and Obama, seeking out “sex scandals” especially, while ignoring Watergate, Iran/Contra (Reagan AND Bush 41), lies to invade Grenada, a phony “arrest” of Noriega that was an undeclared war on Panama, spying failures under “W” (say hello to the twin towers), and of course trumped up “intelligence” to invade Iraq.


    While I don’t like Obama’s administration continuing to use REPUBLiCAN WRITTEN LAWS to continue spying on us, even with court orders and secret warrants from a secret court, they ARE following the law. Hyperbole in the “media” trying to make it otherwise is propaganda, not press, and the effort to discredit the President actually DOES pose security threats to our nation, but hey! preserving conservative politics is a lot more important than preserving the nation.

    I’m sorry, but I must disagree. Watching the watchers doesn’t solve the terrorist problem. Terrorists will attack regardless of whether there is a system in place to monitor for them.

    The bigger danger is this system is in place for future administrations to use. To be blunt, I have little trust or respect for either Bush or Obama. But I feel their administrations are too incompetent to make use of them. But future administrations, more competent and opportunistic, can and will. And History doesn’t really have many happy endings to stories like that. This isn’t a seed which should be watched carefully. It’s a weed that needs to be uprooted before it chokes the whole garden.

    I always wondered what ever happened to “Inspector 12”!
    .
    Remember “Inspector 12?0” (S)He was the person that went through your pants and shirts before they were sold to you to make sure no worker left a dollar in the pocket or something.
    .
    Then along came Home Depot! HD said to Black & Decker, “Listen, you can fire all your inspectors! Just send us the drills and we’ll sell them to our customers. If the drill doesn’t work, the customer will bring it back and we’ll replace it with another one! Our customers are doing the work of your inspectors and we’re taking the risk!”
    .
    “But sometimes it takes a few uses for the problem to show up!” said B&D
    .
    “All the better…” said HD, “that way the customer will have gotten through the job they bought the drill for and then they will think they did something wrong and they’ll just buy a new drill for the next project! Win Win!”
    .
    So the inspectors lost their jobs, eventually Home Depot tossed out their exchange policy and passed the extra expense on to you!
    .
    I never see those “inspected by 12” tags anymore. But I’m happy that “Inspector 12” got a job with the NSA!

    @dtroutma,
    When dealing with the TEA party/Republicans, and their current collection of parrots, etc., one really must remember: NEVER bother minds already made up, with FACTS!


    Vide: The current rush to divert attention from the economy – and the absolutely stagnant inanity, and stupid insanity, of still trying to keep President Obama a “1 Term President” – by heating up the old “ANTI-woman/abortion” miasma, on the Congressional Level.


    The parrots screech and squawk; the Jackasses-in-the-Pulpit bray; and the Teapublican Potty erupts all over, again.
