    I’m sure they will have some fun stories to swap about how they trample people’s liberties.

    If you have the technology to take information from others, what makes you so sure you can keep that information to yourself?

    You can’t. A small newspaper from Manchester, England broke the story that the NSA has been monitoring our phone calls since ’07. And if a small-town newspaper knows, EVERYONE must know.

    Computer tech sites have had articles published about this for some time.

    Remember: it happened because of the Patriot Act instituted by none other than President Bush. Experts said at the time that what the government was going to do with that was take away the rights and liberty of the American people. The American people said, “Please take away our rights, our liberty and freedom to protect us against those terrible terrorists…oh, and please start a war for us, too.” The people were warned by statesmen and justices on both sides of the political divide—-most conservatives, however, said “President Bush and John Ashcroft won’t use it against US…just against those terrorists.” So, please…don’t blame it on the Obama Administration. Read this from 2007:

    “America is going to lose Alaska to China. Mark my words”

    And you know this how?

    Accurate portrayal – of the naivete of our president.

    I’d say there is a greater chance of Alaska declaring itself independent than China getting it.
    Where is the NSA? They will have their claws both ways and every way in all of us.

    Can’t blame presidents without blaming the Federal Courts and Congress also allowing such depredations of our Liberty.

    “Thanks to the corrupt GOP the Chinese will soon steal everything we own. As always the GOP creates problems then blames the Dems”.
    You need to turn that around.

    This is so true, the Government Gone Wild is Hacking us while the Chinese is Hacking the Government Gone Wilde. The first business of the Government is to protect the Constitution, move your Data Mining & Hacking Abilities away from us and on to China. Shut down some of the politicos foreign accounts, that will get their attention.

    Good one. Let’s see what happens if/when Mr. Soros and/or the Koch Brothers can’t access their accounts……

    Alaska citizen here, Joe Volger had the signatures and was headed for the UN to push for Alaska independence.
    He was assassinated, pistol shot to the back of the head, a couple weeks before he was to leave to the UN.
    Serious talk of independence gets serious results, remember The War of Northern Aggression?

    ypoons7666: China is just the third largest holder of US debt, beat considerably by the US and substantially by Canada.

    Some talk above about Alaskan independence. Not such a bad idea. Especially in these days of debt-paranoia. After all, Alaska takes twice as much in Federal revenue than it generates. Taking the state as a whole, each Alaskan receives the equivalent of more than $7400 in subsidy from the Federal Government. The people of NO OTHER STATE are as heavily supported by the Federal Government as Alaska.

    The top six states for contributing more per capita than they take from the Federal Government are Delaware (way in the lead), Minnesota, New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, and Illinois. Note that all six are firmly “blue” states. Of the 20 states where the people give more than they take, 16 are “blue” states. Of the 30 states where the people take more than they give, 19 are “red” states.

    If the country were somehow divided in two, with all the blue states in one union and all the red states in the other, the blue states would be much more prosperous than they are now, and the red states more insolvent, cut off from the Federal trough.
