2. Shout Out
to all that have a heavy heart. Come forward and perge yourselves. You will be able to rest in peace. Come forward now and tell all you know that is not right you owe it to your country-enough said.

9. Russell Tice, former NSA Analyst, up now.
Much worse than we thought.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they are not out to get you.


:wtf:

"access to ALL Americans. They monitored ALL communications."

12. I was against this from the start
People told me I was nuts. If you're not doing anything wrong, why worry about it. For me it was the principle of the thing. It was just all kinds of wrong. Ugh, I am steaming mad right now but not even the slightest bit surprised.

13. Geez, a few more of these Bozos show up and I'm going to have to ditch the tin-foil hat.

Now, to those of you still purporting that:

1) Peak oil as well as demand in China and India were solely responsible for $4+ gas and

2) that it's not the banks and hedge funds who raped U.S., you'd better buckle up. It's gonna be a bumpy few months.

14. more will come out..journalists dont surprise me..but itll be
artists, entertainers, musicians, environmentalists, democrats holding local office, teachers, professors and whoever these people had electronic communications with, etc.

in other words, people who absolutely pose no domestic or terroristic threat


and for those who think domestic spying is only done for good reason, and to a very few, some of us have personal proof as to how far they went with innocent people and their families decades ago
