The NSA is just a nuclear weapon of a different form. So long as it is on your government's side, be happy. Unless anyone wants to cite a single case in the 30+ years of mass data collection and internet surveillance where this power was abused in any substantial way.
lol countless cases where NSA employees spied on their exgirlfriends and so on. i rather ask you, since you yourself mentioned 30+ years of mass data collection and internet surveillance, where this power prevented terrorist attacks? like lets say 911? cause there are government statements, that all this surveillance had nearly zero effect.
so in end its just another bridge to nowhere, so some politicians can get their bribe ehm lobbying money while tax payers are being defrauded for billions. its kinda cute how you call bribes lobying as long as you put list of your bribes on a website xD
so yeah, an old eastern European joke comes to mind. everything that communists told us about communism was a lie, but everything they told us about capitalism was truth.
thing is, here in eastern europe people learned to read between the lines, so now after decades of "freedom" its just hillarious that the people on other side of the wall are getting screwed in same way as we were, but they are just happy indoctrinated sheep, who actually like being screwed
kinda funny cause if it was russians doing this, everyone and their grandma would be on the barricades "what about truth, what about freedom", but when the "truth patented" people use it, its supposedly for everyones safety lolEdited by revro - 5/26/15 at 3:43am
