Work for the fascists, become a fascist yourself. There are times where you have to take a stand or become part of the forces of evil.

In order to stand against evil you generally must be able to identify it. You seldom succeed in this since you are generally anti-American and substitute America for evil while either ignoring actual evil or claiming it wouldn't exist if not for America. That isn't a recipe for successful stands against evil. It's almost the opposite.

Oh, there is more to it than that. Canning was a vital element of Napoleon's war machine.

Why Napoleon Offered A Prize For Inventing Canned Food

1. Napoleon's Food Preservation Prize (1795)

Napoleon offered 12,000 francs to improve upon the prevailing food preservation methods of the time. Not surprisingly, the purpose was to better feed his army "when an invaded country was not able or inclined to sell or provide food". Fifteen years later, confectioner Nicolas François Appert claimed the prize. He devised a method involving heating, boiling and sealing food in airtight glass jars — the same basic technology still used to can foods.

How many of those cogs of a war machine do you have at the moment? Shouldn't you rid yourself of them for the sake of purity so you don't feel compelled to hold yourself in contempt?

If we did it, it's cyberterrorism. If they do it, it's law enforcement.

Assholes.

They are part of the government, you are an individual citizen. Do you somehow not see the difference? Is this a difficult point for you?

When was the last time that you personally passed a zoning ordinance and fined people for not obeying it?
When was the last time that you personally arrested and imprisoned someone after their appeal to your personal court failed?
When was the last time that you imposed and collected taxes?
Does any of this ring a bell?

A few of them probably should be hung for treason.

Until you can reliably discern the difference between the powers wielded by a government and you as an individual citizen you aren't really qualified to make any claims of treason.

Morally, every black hat should be targeting these agencies to cause as much damage to them as possible -- because the damage they're doing to our freedoms is immeasurable.

What could possibly go wrong? And of course "black hat" hackers are not a problem in any way.
To the extend that you aren't "free" it appears to be mainly due to being captive to some crank ideas.

Thanks, America, for leading the charge in fucking up the planet.

Unserious and apparently unmedicated.

Will your spleen be empty any time soon?

Remember this statement?

If this were a legitimate concern why can he not point to a single incident of someone doing exactly this rather than merely spreading FUD?

Apparently it is a legitimate concern and your view isn't worth much.

BTW - That "single" incident resulted in two assassinated police officers.

mi (197448) writes "A shadowy Bermudan company that has funneled tens of millions of dollars to anti-fracking environmentalist groups in the United States is run by executives with deep ties to Russian oil interests and offshore money laundering schemes involving members of President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle.

With oil prices plunging as a result of a fracking-induced oil glut in the United States, experts say the links between Russian oil interests, secretive foreign political donors, and high-profile American environmentalists suggest Russia may be backing anti-fracking efforts in the United States."

Waze has been around for over 6 years. If this were a legitimate concern why can he not point to a single incident of someone doing exactly this rather than merely spreading FUD?

You seem to have missed some news stories.

NYPD Cop Killer Used App to Track Police Movements Since Early December

NYPD Cop killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley was using a traffic app called Waze to track law enforcement’s movements, NYC Alerts tweeted on Monday. According to an available screenshot, Brinsley was tracking two officers who were almost 4 miles away from him in Staten Island at 10:44 PM EST since the beginning of December.
