    Ha-ha … words do matter … Classic Dishonest Hypocritical Government: “Do What I Say, Not What I Do”; excepting he did do what they said and not what they do (keep secretes and lie to Americans)!

    What is that THING in the red coat standing near the President? Man, those are some CRAZY eyes. Surprised the SS let somebody who looks like that get that close. Just sayin’.

    I’ve always felt that the problem with ubiquitous surveillance would be its unequal access.

    Politicians, other 1%ers and their minions among the 99%ers always feel that they and only they should have access to the data.

    That is what being “Big Brother” is all about…

    If the fruits of this ubiquitous surveillance, the mined data, meta or not, was made universally accessible in real-time to all, just by Googling it, it would be truly earth shaking and civilization altering.

    The level of criminality, typically the planned kind as opposed to the opportunistic violent kind , would rapidly drop because people would realize that they couldn’t hope to get away with it and be forced to find some other legal way to provide value for money exchanged.

    Look for prostitution and drugs to become legalized and regulated just like alcohol.

      Mob rule is never a solution.

      • Rick Salsman says:

        Mob rule is the free market.

      • msbpodcast says:

        It depends on how unfettered the mob can be.

        When French farmers are pushed too far they dump tons and tons of manure all over the avenues around the Champs Elisé.

        They don’t take shit, they spread it and just happen to shut down Paris in the process.

        That’s rather more effective than what our farmers do, which is whine until the USDA come across with their subsidy cheques.

        That’s because stupid Americans don’t realize that food doesn’t actually come from the super market.

    WH said nothing about treasonous acts of violating the oath to secrecy of Americas intelligence or military operations. Why do teapublicans hate our men in uniform and place them in harms way?

      This post is brought to you by Wikipedia and its “Word of the day”:

      “An idiot, dolt, or dullard is a mentally deficient person, or someone who acts in a self-defeating or significantly counterproductive way. Archaically the word mome has also been used. The similar terms moron, imbecile, and cretin have all gained specialized meanings in modern times. An idiot is said to be idiotic, and to suffer from idiocy. A dunce is an idiot who is specifically incapable of learning. An idiot differs from a fool (who is unwise) and an ignoramus (who is uneducated/an ignorant), neither of which refers to someone with low intelligence.”

    he said what they did

    They now even call for arresting the journalist of the Guardian. Yeah, focus on and kill the messengers. Do not look at the problem they exposed.

    I have no doubt they already compiled lots of dirt on royals, politicians and whoever. You? Me? The whole NSA database is the perfect tool for keeping everyone in line with their program. Stalin and Hitler would have been very jalous.

    If you defend this mass spying system (“I have nothing to hide”) and want whistleblowers convicted, you really know shit about history. And what will hit you soon. No matter what political color you admire.

    It is not what snowden says, it is he knows the passwords and codes

    • Holdfast says:

      And how long does it take to change a password or coding?

      If it takes moer than 5 minutes, then that is another reason that some very senior people should be put on the unemployment lines.

    “to prove he’s actually married to Micky”. Hello? Is this No Agenda or Entertainment Tonight? You get my drift….get back on track, okay?

    I’m waiting to see someone question the easy and unquestioned use, or misuse, of the Classified designation. Hope I live long enough.

    Like so many other things the government claims to do, or claims we should to. This obviously was a case of IYSS,SS theater. Not on Snowden’s part, but on the WH’s part. They don’t really want their own, exposing their dirty little secrets to the public’s attention. And any stated policy, that says otherwise, is strictly theater.
