At least by moving it offshores, the NSA actually has to resort to actions that have a good chance of causing a bit of egg on the government's face if they're caught.

The government's face has zero adhesive attraction to additional egg - they need to wash the face first to remove the existing dried egg.

That might explain why the murder rate is so high in Brazil. "In most cities, the vast majority of violence takes place on just a few street corners, at certain times of the day, and AMONG SPECIFIC PEOPLE."

Every year, Brazil hosts the world donut festival which attracts significant numbers of American pOlice officers. Shootings of black people from behind increase according to the inverse square law - by diminishing distance from the closest donut eatery.

In the U.S., the cities with the largest population of blacks have the most crime and the cities with the lowest number of blacks have the least amount of crime

If there are fewer black people, the pOlice find it harder to track them down and murder them from behind. Duh! Not exactly rocket science.

What is wrong with you people (no, not you brain-dead basement dwellers - you, the majority of your countrymen and the policymakers).

You need to be prevented from travelling overseas or having any influence on world events until you've achieved civilization according to a modern definition of the word. Warning: this probably means getting decent healthcare too. ie.Healthcare with a primary goal of *drumroll* providing health (omg!) to your population rather than as a secondary but necessary expense of profiting from them.

Really, I'm so sick of hearing USA USA USA trumpeted from every fucking orifice. Fix your shit. Fix the imbalances in your society and maybe things will start to heal.
