    It really is disgusting what this “security apparatus” has become. But since voting Republican is off the table (since they can’t seem to nominate candidates who aren’t sociopaths or sycophants), what can we do about it?

    I would not be calling Republicans sycophants when you have President Obama, remember some of those bizarre articles on President Obama when he was first running, those were sycophants. Sycophants don’t run for president they only try to get their value from somebody as high up as possible.

    As a sociopath, not listing to anyone including other Democrats and expecting Senator Reid and Congress Woman Pelosi to bail him out again and again, then thinking it is normal, that is far more sociopathic then anybody in recent years.

    I’d say that GWB was certainly that way. Not caring who disagreed with him he went his own way regardless of what others thought. Maybe being a psychopath is now required by the Plutocrats in order to be allowed to run for office in the Democrats and Republicans parties.

    This is somewhat off target – whoever is president has no real control over the NSA – Obama himself is NOT doing the listening – he is nothing more than a well-compensated flak catcher, paid to stand out front and absorb/deflect the public ire. The NSA is housed in the Dept. of State, along with the CIA, and operates according to long-standing practices and procedures that have grown ever more devious and complex since the days of Kissinger’s tenure at State. The DoS takes more of its direction from certain offices and organizations in NY than anyone in DC.

    Ok first a psychopath is now such a large part of mental illness it has little impact when you say it, how do you mean psychopath?

    Actually the only thing that’s changed regarding spying is now there aren’t any warrant-less wiretaps on Americans.

    EUGENO, both the NSA and CIA operate under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense, not the Department of State.

    Psychopaths are just like you and me except for one difference. Depending on the severity they have no empathy to anyone. Some are even without fear. But the bottom line is such people can’t be trusted yet they get in charge of govt’s and and armies and large corporations. The smart ones can feign emotion where needed by are heartless back stabbers who just love chaos. The ones that don’t become criminals can become quite successful but still dangerous. And of those mot psychopaths our own system especially in the corporate area promote psychopathy as the way to succeed. Calling it initiative and dominance/

    She isn’t my candidate. She is just as dangerous a right winger as Obama though not as overtly fanatical as any Tea Party fanatic they can put out to run.

    @churchillwasright

    And the CIA is not part of the DOD.

    @pirate227

    I believe you may be right. I stand corrected.

    But the NSA does report to the DOD, not DOS.
