That old truth about cockroaches and the light. No wonder the Digital Stasi hate Snowden.

NSA faces backlash over collecting phone data

You can tell when the credibility of the U.S. government has hit an all time low, when Eric Holder has to assure Putin, that Snowden will not be tortured, if returned. Think about that. In the eyes of the world, we have sunk to the level of Idi Amin, the former ruler of Uganda! We are now viewed as being on the same level as Baby Doc Duvalier, former ruler of Haiti, or Pol Pot of Cambodia. Never in my lifetime did I think I'd read such a thing coming from so high in government. Yet, that exchange went right over the heads of most Americans. Even if there were a total house cleaning in Washington, it would take centuries to repair the damage done to this country by the last two Presidents. The NSA, through limited hang-out, lies, using people like Saxby Chamblis, is trying to minimize the damage. They DO read e-mails; they DO listen to phone calls; they DO ignore the law. We-the -people are in more danger than we could ever know. Foreign threats to the U.S.,cannot compare to the domestic threat by government.

Yeah, and the other old truth about money buys votes was alive and well during the Amash amendment vote.
quote:"The numbers tell the story — in votes and dollars. On Wednesday, the House voted 217 to 205 not to rein in the NSA’s phone-spying dragnet. It turns out that those 217 “no” voters received twice as much campaign financing from the defense and intelligence industry as the 205 “yes” voters."unquote

Especially those two scumbags, Boehner and Pelosi...

quote:"House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) voted against the measure. He ranked 15th in defense earnings with a $131,000 take. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) also voted against Amash. Pelosi took in $47,000 from defense firms over the two-year period."unquote

youbetcha..alive and well. And they don't even try to hide it anymore. Corruption on steroids.
