If he wanted us to use sharpened sticks and clay tablets then why did he give me an appendage to write my name in the snow with?
Climate change -- no more snow. See -- this is what climate change brings. Touchscreen laptops. Now you know who to blame.
None of those things will help you. To the NSA, the content of your email may be less important than with whom you are communicating. Yes, the care about the content of some emails, but their dragnet appears to be for network analysis -- sender, recipients, date, time, etc. The NSA almost certainly catalogs every DNS lookup you do. This is the stuff that is erroneously being referred to as metadata.
One possibly surprising way to keep your communications private is to read/post your communications to a very public forum. That way the intended recipient is difficult to determine. Keep the communication slightly covert -- a little steganography goes a long way if you can fly under the radar. Just don't trust others with your privacy.
Our rights are inalienable -- but only if we use them.
how far into bullshit do you have to go in the results before you find a meaning that fits this?

Yeah, if only they'd invent some sort of device to turn a transmitter on in civilian airspace and off in restricted airspace. Maybe they could call it a Radio-Controlled Switch or something. In other news... if you're worried about insurgents shooting down your precious drones, why the fuck did you clear that area for civilian aviation?
Right.... because no insurgent would ever choose to put their hang out near a civilian airport. Someplace nice and safe from those pesky drones. Nope... that would never, ever happen.
Jeez give it a rest, there are people on this planet who'd do anything to live in our democracy and you cheapen the word with your trinket dispenser.
No one is cheapening the word -- it's its usage in this form predates your absurdist politically correct world view.
Model I and "Creative Computing" books/magazines for me. Amazing that these books are available in eBook format now. Search for "David Ahl" on Amazon. Also here: http://www.atariarchives.org/bcc1/
Had loads of fun with Lunar Lander, Hunt the Wumpus, Super Star Trek, and many others.
Maybe a functional theocracy with an end-of-the-world complex developing nuclear weapons wasn't such a good idea.
They have an end-of-the-world complex? Citation please? I'm only familiar with the doomsday preppers here in the U.S. Something similar going on in Iran?
This message brought to you by the hometown newspaper for what is usually considered one of the more politically corrupt cities in the country.
Politically?? My Dear Sir, we do not limit our corruption to just government and politics in this fine city. What do you take us for? Amateurs?
Colbert is no a doctor though...
