I don't expect too many of the usual Total Farkers on this thread.


Yeah but Obama doesn't really mean it. I know this, because I don't look at his policies. I look into his heart.

Or something.

It's kind of funny/sad.  These types of threads during the Bush administration would garner hundreds of posts.  And now....

And the worst part of it is actually twofold:

1. Things are actually *WORSE* now than they were under much of the Bush Administration, because some of those court decisions authorizing this stuff happened after Dumbya left office, and

2. Because of Edward Snowdon, we have hard evidence of precisely what the government is doing and how they are doing it, something that was much more nebulous during the Bush years.

soakitincider: The USA and Russia have done complete 180's; russia has a balanced budget and low taxes, and the USA is starting to resemble the USSR.


That's because US is run by leftist, but in Russia leftists are sent to prisons

We get it, he's black.

Concern-troll.

Listen to this guy, he's basically saying both sides are bad, so we should vote Republican!

So knowing more makes things worse?

I always find it ironic that these people go to places with track records that make the US look outright saintly by comparison. It seems to me that if you wanted to protest or avoid US intrusions, there are far less dystopian places one could go. Why not go to these? Is this supposed to be some kind of neo-Godwinning, or have they actually lost all sense of perspective (or is there even a difference)?

Sure.  Ignorance is bliss, right?  So knowledge is the opposite.

Because generally, if you go to those places, they tend to cooperate with US law enforcement agencies, and they will arrest and hold you while the respective governments fill out the extradition paperwork.

deforge: considering the source being russian equivalent of fox news, this piece is propagandic bullshiat.
the same personal privacy violations americans fear in the us, are present in russian and then some.


I'm not sure that the Russian authorities have the same resources and technical know how that's available to the NSA.

onyxruby: Pause and think about this for a moment. Your going to move servers out of the US where there are at least some laws and court oversight restraining how the NSA works to another country where there are no laws or court oversight restraining the NSA. I can't possibly be the only person that sees this as a massive logic failure.


The article was talking about non US ISPs moving data to Russia. It's still just as stupid though.

Why not, their micro-schemes are the biggest micro-schemes in the world

He's in for a nasty surprise in the near future.

Or maybe not. As long as the FSB/KGB can keep their eavesdropping and data theft a secret, these companies may never find out how much of their assets have been stolen.

If they do find out, it will be in a big way. When the Soviets wanted to let the Americans know they reverse engineered the StratoFortress they did it by flying 4 of them during a MayDay parade. The message came through loud and clear as the US has only crashed 3 of them over the Soviet Union during WW2.
