sanriosucks: Someone brought this up in an earlier thread, but it's a perspective I had never really thought of;All things aside (which is hard to do, considering basic, fundamental American rights and all), all of that, put aside for just a moment,... What an incredible, monumental, epic boondoggle. Such flagrant waste, fraud, and abuse. The NSA has spent an untold amount on this.. We don't even get to know. And for what. Let's assume they know everything... They can't use it. They can't share it. We know for a fact they can't even look through it all.Can you imagine if they were scientist, ornithologist, say, and went to congress asking for a budget to collect everything imaginable on ivory billed woodpeckers.. An unlimited budget to collect all information on each of them. Each individual bird. How many mites were in their nest, etc.. And they had to promise in their budget to never, ever use the data. To collect more than they had the capability to process. For science, you know...
enry: Can we take all the "Thanks Obama" GIFs and replace then with NSA?No love lost between me and them but do we really need to think that the NSA really knows everything and is involved tangentially or actively in every nefarious plot out there?
