vpb: Mugato: I'm not an expert on This but I know a little and while they're not looking at everyones shiat just assume that they are. But most likely you Are not that interestingI do think that the idea of being interesting enough to watch is a part of what attracts people to these sort of conspiracy theories.
J. Frank Parnell: AGremlin: Hello...just stay in the 25% of the internet they're not monitoring. Duhhh?That's reserved for the illuminati pedophile ring.
uncleacid: Just a piece of paper.[a.abcnews.com image 640x360]
Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: Don't worry, eventually a Republican will be President again, and all you "Patriots" can go back to not caring about this sort of thing.
Outrageous Muff: Face it, you all think the government is lying to you. So no matter what they tell you, you will dismiss it as a lie.Basically:[static.someecards.com image 420x294]
Outrageous Muff: However regulations say that all NSA collected data can not be used against a US citizen and that all dealings with citizens are handed over to the FBI who does get warrants.
Voiceofreason01: lying to congress is a crime
MadMattressMack: redheads when looking for pr4ns
CrazyCracka420: Haha, sure they do *pats nmrsnr on the head*, sure they do.
J. Frank Parnell: mediablitz: HypnozombieX: It's the whole reason that the internet was released to the masses to begin with. To have another dimension in which developed countries could dominate. The good news is that they didn't think their clever plan all the way through. Oh yeah,fark the NSAThere's paranoia, then there is PARANOIA...Yeah, next he'll be saying the internet was invented and given to the world by DARPA.
Lando Lincoln: We're not talking about governments spying on each other.
midigod: The NSA themselves acknowledge thousands of those abuses.
GanjSmokr: I'm curious... to those of you here who say "they aren't actually monitoring, they just have the capability to monitor", would you be as dismissive of this situation if the president had a different (LETTER) behind his name?Be honest with yourselves. I'm sure some of you actually would be as dismissive, but I'm equally sure that some or you would be very vocal about your displeasure./personally, I think it's bad no matter who's in charge//but I try not to be a partisan idiot most of the time, too.
The Muthaship: Maybe sadder than the fact that the government is illegally spying on innocent Americans en mass, is how many of those citizens are making excuses for them.
CrazyCracka420: Also the FBI and other spying agencies certainly would never illegally spy on citizens, it's not like Hoover used this information for furthering political agendas in this country.Seriously, you unpatriotic spineless farks who support this illegal spying on our own citizens, are pretty farking ignorant to our own country's history.
I_C_Weener: I just can't wait until the next Republican president so that I can say, "But Obama."
vpb: Headline: We tap into 75% of US internet traffic.TFA: The system has the capacity to reach roughly 75% of all U.S. Internet trafficHaving the capacity to do something is not the same thing as doing it. We have the capacity to nuke Chicago, but that doesn't mean that we have already done it.This sort of straw man is typical of these NSA "spying" stories.
DROxINxTHExWIND: I don't want to be THAT guy, but I remember in all of the "Truther" threads when people like me suggested that maybe the Bush administration knew more or even were complicit, the argument against it was, "the governement is incapable of that sort of efficiency"./I guess they've been training
AGremlin: Hello...just stay in the 25% of the internet they're not monitoring. Duhhh?
vpb: We have the capacity to nuke Chicago, but that doesn't mean that we have already done it.
