I realize (just based upon comments) that any non-gun related post is a loser. But, it’s my blog and I like posting about what I’m interested in. So, here’s another loser. Alas, it is all of us. From Techdirt:
James Clapper Pretends It Was Just A Good Idea To Suddenly Declassify FISA Documents; Doesn’t Mention EFF Lawsuit Or Snowden.
That’s just the lede. Please read it because it reinforces the horrible reality of the THX-1138, corrupt and controlling government, 1984 version, that we’re now living with.
BTW: While I haven’t really posted anything about Snowden, it’s only because I didn’t really know what to make of him or what he did. At first, his revelations were intriguing. Then, for a while, I was angry that he was disclosing our country’s defensive precautions.
Lately, though, I’ve changed my mind. The abuses of the NSA, our citizen-appointed government (”of, by, and for the people”) have almost convinced me that he is just an enthusiastic ‘whistle blower’ who didn’t do it right.
I’m glad (in a depressive sort of way) that he has informed us of how badly, how unconstitutionally, how over-stepping-the-bounds, our government has behaved.
As Thomas Jefferson said:
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.
Of course, we are now learning that the government does indeed fear the people. Instead of liberty, we are being spied upon, investigated, monitored, all without good reason or constitutionally. But, since it is happening under “The One’s” watch, and NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, NPR, the NY Times, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, the LA Times, et al, are all — still! — busy sucking Obama’s cock and refusing to act like journalists and watch dogs, the American people aren’t hearing the real story of the ‘end-times’ of the United States.
Liberals will froth at the mouth at that statement. The rest of you know, in your broken hearts, that it’s true.
