Wasn't the RIAA exposed to have interest in attacking DNS? No doubt NSA has been in there a long time but this news is recent, nothing like a batch of movie industry lawyers putting off the fact that movie sales are down because they have only been producing sh!t for movies lately, so they are doing the only intelligent thing. Pass the buck, blame it on piracy. I for the life of me can't figure out why anyone would want to pirate this crap.

It's just 'Karma', you know ;). I do not agree with what is going on with these clowns, in fact, no reasonable expectation to privacy en mass is unhealthy, they are effectively lining people up to buy Prozac from big pharma. Just another case of the government feeding a line of paranoid bullshit to the people with hidden objectives, and it always turns out to be about money.

In other news the NSA has declared that 43% of Anonymous Coward's are terrorist's and have now been added to no fly lists. You have now reasonable expectation to privacy because da gubbermint has been breading stupidity for so long, the people do not know what is best for them, big thanks to Hitler for your salvation.

The CIA has added waterboarding as a sport like wakeboarding, snowboarding, surfing etc.

Do you think they are spying on me personally because I frequently push encrypted files around?

I rather doubt it. I'm sure that they passively grab things from me just like they do from everyone... but as to specifically focusing on me?... unlikely.

No, they are spying on everyone because they are so self conscious and are insanely jealous of penis sizes they observed while watching illegal PR0N.

No really, it is about power, it is about awareness to maintain it. What bugs me about it is the I.T. community has played into an act on their part of taking up the sword against their own people, the ones they have been charged with acting in the defense of as well as the constitution, all for the purpose of justifying the insane size of the black budget.

Yep, trouble is getting the test to delineate the skunky smell from one's clothing or one's breath.

There is really no way to measure THC based on breath, it is absorbed primarily through the lungs, and the amount in the blood stream should be the determining factor, this is where an acceptable error rate could be hiding just like with alcohol and the systems repeated failure to calibrate equipment and dole out tickets when the budget is running lean. Don't think for a minute that the gubberment is being sympathetic to people with cancer or glaucoma, or pain problems. This is about money, and taking it from the cartels plenty of the badge wielding bums have been playing mule for since '71...

Exactly, over the polar cap in the original migration that has archaeological evidence dating upwards of 16k years back in the US, so where did the Mayans actually come from, and when did they develop math skills and apply them to astronomy, and why did the Catholic church destroy their written records.
