    Hell, let’s make it three bridges.
    Not just the famous Brooklyn Bridge, let’s also throw in the Willie B (Williamsburg Bridge) and the Manhattan Bridge!

    What secrets do you have that would affect National security? None? Why does it matter if NSA snoops then?

    “What secrets do you have that would affect National security? None? Why does it matter if NSA snoops then?”

    If only they only cared about national security. Let’s take a true example: Pete Townsend of the Who was asked to provide music for a documentary on child porn. He did some computer research. Then he was arrested on suspicion of child porn, had his computer confiscated, on and on. Now, being Pete Townsend (wealthy and connected), it only took months to clear his name.

    Now, imagine you’re not connected and wealthy. Imagine you want to serve your community and decide to run against a ruthless political opponent, and you’re ahead in the polls. Can you honestly tell me that you’ve never been to a website that could be used against you in just this situation? And what might be the outcome if your opponent, by virtue of his office, could use this info, and you couldn’t even access his?

    Knowledge is power. Do you want to give more power to the idiots currently in power?

    Yeah, I’m sure you would’ve been fine If Bush(that guy you lefties called Hitler) was recording all of your online activity and your personal emails, right?

    OK, why do you believe you know what the difference is? Manning is no hero he just handed it over to Wikileaks no telling what it would have done plus a propaganda machine for our enemies.

    Snowden I though he was one then he ran to China then Russia so no I was wrong and so are you.

    What makes you think he didn’t? That’s the thing here; this program has been going on since at least 2006. Why does it seem that suddenly now it’s news?

    And, as an aside, I have never called Mr. Bush Hitler. I never saw a lefty do so, but I saw a lot of righties accuse Mr. Obama of being Hitler. I even saw large throngs of people carrying posters with his picture “modified” to look like Hitler. Bad manners and lack of respect are not confined to a single political ideology.

    Yo no reason, just read your post from yesterday, did I hurt your feelings?

    You did what you always did, you could not argue your point so first you split hairs then you created personal insults. Truth is I am tired of you and your behavior trying to pretend you know what you are talking about I will not post to anything you say again. If you post to me my only reply is that I do not want to get involved with a man child.

    “If only they only cared about national security.”
    Very nicely presented. Look what J. Edgar Hoover was able to do gathering information the hard way.

    On your reply to ConserveGov

    What many don’t realize is that the legalizing (on a large scale) of all of this surveilance actually started with PUBLIC LAW 95-511—OCT. 25, 1978 the “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978”(FISA)enacted under Carter. Prior to this law enforcement had to go to a regular court and get a warrant. With the enactment of the FISA the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court was created where warrants could be issued in secret. The last time I checked, there have been 33,949 warrants issued. Then comes the National Security Letter. There have been 304,862 issued since 2003. When issued they come with a gag order. These NSL’s are what have been used to get personal information from Google, Facebook, etc., and are currently in the court system as to legality. They can be issued by personnel as far down the chain of command as a Special Agent in Charge in a Bureau field office. Could all of those warrants and NSL’s really be connected to national security? No way to know. It’s all secret.

    PAJ is not Ima. PAJ is the ZIT, as in HowgoZIT.

    @mikefive

    mikefive, what you say is true. And, applause for your digging to provide actual information, and facts.
    -
    But, like almost all other issues, the substance doesn’t matter — the goal of the Republicans/Fox “news” viewers is to express hatred toward Obama and to damage his presidency.
    -
    This is true of health care, Syria, Libya, bank bailouts, withdrawing from Iraq, withdrawing from Afghanistan, payroll tax holiday, Israel/Palestine, etc.
