Response to ProSense (Original post)

Fri Aug 9, 2013, 01:35 PM

153. If Snowden was to tell exactly how the NSA types of

data mining types of procedures and codes and directives, that would really make his whistle blowing go from letting people know the NSA and private contractors have the capabilities of extracting info from people's personal accounts, to dangerous information being leaked on the exact how to of the programs that are operating.

It doesn't make sense to me to release the specifics of the programming code and protocols used for other people to create similar systems that are foreign Govt's or terrorist hackers (not that they probably don't have similar shit going on anyway).

The reality is that this really shouldn't be news to anyone. The Patriot act and the NDAA basically insulated the govt from being prosecuted against the 4 th amendment. The fact that this came out under and Obama admin and the right wing crazies who have been scared by the Fox News types, think its awful that Obama could read their emails and come for their guns. There are quite a few republicans who were trying to kick this shit storm under the bus since they had really begun doing this type of stuff since forever. Now one really wants the American people to question the "black books", the CIA, NSA and the rest of the alphabet soup. They don't really want Americans to wake up to what is going on in the world and here in America.

God forbid those rabid tea party freaks, libertards, and progressive liberals actually came together on the idea that the police-state/ spying on Americans type of shut has to go... And anyone supporting this shit has got to go. But the people in power who lord over their subjects have always wanted to know what is going on to make sure they can remain in control. A fair, democratic republic, was instituted and from the inception, those who want the power and control have tried to figure out how to manipulate and break the idea behind a free, fair, and just society.

It's harder and harder for them to hide behind their classified BS and security measures because the Internet and almost everyone with a smart phone/ camera of some type can instantly show everyone what's going on. A decade ago, we would have to take written word witness to the women in TX being subjected to a roadside probing... However, the police authorities own dash cams caught them in the act of going above and beyond what is necessary... And most of this is to instill fear in the people to rise up and take ownership of this country and for other people's around the world to join together in a unified voice to say this shit is wrong and there is no reason for the world to be operating like it is. There is no reason to have slave labor or military used for multinational companies to exploit resources... Or that there is a real need for all of the spying on people that is occurring. Or that police forces are no longer a part of the community serving as peace officers, but rather used more like a thuggish brute force against people where everyone is suspect.
