I'm a US citizen that's strongly opposed to all of this bullshit. I've lost my own patience for my government. What should people like me do to show people like you that we're just as fed up as you are, if not more? Protest? Rebel? Sign some pledge? Comment on Slashdot?

Buy more ammo!

I used the built-in encryption, so guessing the whole phone (it's the Nexus 4 with no external SD.) I can't find anyway to get the files downloaded to the root dir. I tried redirecting the download folder in Firefox to root. I can't seem to find out how to change it on Chrome or Dolphin. I have boots into Recovery mode & then I get the stuff posted above. I'm at work now so I can't hook it up to the computer. I'll mess with it when I get home...worse comes to worse I just do a clean boot.

I'm the head of the IT shop at a military unit. When we log on to military networks we all click the "consent to monitoring" banner, so you basically have no privacy rights on .mil networks. I had a civilian manager come to me the other day demanding "web link" logs for 10 different people. She wanted to see if they were doing their jobs or just fucking off. I told her that I would not (and legally could not) provide that to her. I told her she could either get with the NSA for logs or go read a management book to learn how to properly manage her people. She did not like that response, but I think she got the point.
