Re: Stalin is beaming I miss the really important stuff. What's Monica been doing? How's Bill?
I think what irks me the most is that with all the trampling of people's rights, the shredding of the constitution, and everything else... Where are the arrests of terrorists??? Why does it take the New York State Banking Commission to discover that Standard Chartered bank is in bed with the Iranians??? Are BANKS and CORPORATIONS OFF LIMITS to "monitoring"? THAT would be incredibly stupid.

I don't think domestic surveillance was ever about terrorism... it is about being able to quash dissent. It is about being able to track down the real threats to the US status quo: Bradley Manning, Anonymous, OWS, anyone else that doesn't agree with the corporate controlled political system we have now.
And yet the good little sheeple just bend over and take it day after day... coming back to beg for more. So sad...
