    the MASSIVE on U.S. citizens phone tapping started in the 1960’s, (62-63?) w/ TELSTAR.
    As the gov needed a cut out, the gathering was out sourced, one of our "allies’, right?

    Good one, Ted.

    But as far as science goes, we’re dumber than some but not all. See here.

    And not just science…

    More people knew that Michael Jackson composed Beat It than knew that the Bill of Rights was amendments to the Constitution

    Explains why our “leaders” are so crappy…

    Quite a few Americans have seen the illegal, classified films that Bradley Manning made public.


    At least 99% of the Americans who saw the films (or just heard about them) saw (or heard about) brave, American soldiers killing enemy combatants who would have killed thousands of innocent Americans had our troops not acted to keep us all safe.


    But a tiny, tiny, unpatriotic minority, from both the extreme left and the extreme right, didn’t see the same video. They saw American soldiers shooting innocent civilians and laughing about it, shooting from where those soldiers were under no threat of any kind, shooting innocent civilians for sport and amusement.


    Fortunately, the overwhelming majority of ordinary, middle-of-the-road Americans saw one and only one crime: Manning’s treason in releasing the videos where they provided aid and comfort to America’s implacable enemies: those extreme left-wing and right-wing voters who would weaken the US if they ever got the chance (but, being a minority of much less than 1%, they won’t ever get that chance).


    (And, as Mr Rall concludes, that tiny minority also thinks that the US economic system is flawed, when the overwhelming majority of voters know, since they’ve been told by all their newspapers, that the US economic system is the most perfect economic system that has ever existed,)

    Dear Ted,

    My insurance company raised my rates because of your meta-data tarnishing mine. Your drone risk is much too high. Sorry, but we have to end our relationship.

    @Baslim the beggar says, "The past is the enemy of the future."

    “More people knew that Michael Jackson composed Beat It than knew that the Bill of Rights was amendments to the Constitution”

    Was? Did they expire?
    The article was interesting though. Not overly surprising, but interesting.

    No, the Bill of Rights has not expired… yet.

    “Brave American soldiers” you say? From a helicopter gunship. The people were not solders or terrorists. They were in their own country and an foreign invader, US, killed them. Murdered in fact. That is one good reason why we are both feared and hated. Not a good thing for us unless we want to be a blood thirsty empire. Do we? I don’t.
