Why do you give a flying **** what the NSA are doing with your data?

Because government entities are being used to punish those of differing political beliefs than those in power. It will only get worse, and it matters not what "side" the current rulers are. The current administrations favorite punishment tool seems to be the IRS. Can't wait to find out how bad it gets with the next administration.

It is with great shame and humiliation I confess that I approved of the Patriot Act when it was first passed. I distinctly remember telling a friend of mine that I could care less if the government wanted to listen to each and every one of my phone calls, because I had nothing to hide. How embarrassing.

Emotions get the best of everyone, politicians know this better than anyone, that is why it had such great initial public support. Who was it who said "never let a crisis go to waste"? This foul tactic works quite well unfortunately.

This 3D printing hype is tiresome.

I somewhat agree, but it is exciting to think that this is just the ground floor of something awesome. I tend to look at this as a technology in its infancy, using plastics and non-durable materials.

Give it time, in a matter of years technology will allow the plastics to be replaced with hard metals, etc.
