Oh crap, my bank website uses encryption, paypal uses encryption. Windows uses encryption. Politicians use encryption, the media uses encryption, the NSA uses encryption. Humans use encryption.

There can be only one logical answer.

When the Ruskie's stated that the US would collapse from within they weren't kidding. Interesting that they fell victim to the same things, and that most are side stepping the issues created for the airline industries by the rest of all this bullshit. Terrorists's impact the US economy? They couldn't possibly compete with our own stupidity...

You are all missing the point here, the county cannot afford it, mind control works on people but not on the bottom line. Based upon the fact the California Lotto was accepted and implemented to fund the cost of education means there is obviously something wrong with that program.

Shitcan the lotto, or fix it.

In all actuality, Congress was a part of a democracy, to put a finger on Congress would be like the pot calling the kettle black. What we have is a first world problem and they don't run a democracy. There cannot be a single order over the entire world with respect to individuality or culture.

I would tend to disagree on theft with no victims. What happens when the person that got their medical records stolen finds this was promoted by or done by the people that now harass them on the phone. And when said victim shows up on their doorstep with a baseball bat because the law (not unlike 9/11) failed to act and have now produced case law that will prevent them from having to act on it in the future? I think their are more individual people than corporations, think the law will fail to act on backlash?

Great idea, then the NSA can justify a bigger black budget in a country that has been floating on credit since it went bankrupt in 1971 as a direct result of what the mob did in the late 50's/early 60's beyond turning national security into a fucking joke. It is completely understandable as to why they did what they did to Snowden, and not in a good way. The more people they push towards the edge, the more that will start playing it like they have nothing left to lose. Think Bosnia.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
