The problem is people keep blaming the fucking NSA when they are just doing what politicians ask them to do. ITS NOT THE NSAs fault. it's the fault of POLITICIANS that you people keep voting back into power. The PATRIOT ACT was not written by the NSA. Yet it's the NSA that keeps getting dumped on in places like slashdot and and the greater media in general. All the memes and talking points single out the NSA as the bogey man and not the fucking politicians that have tasked them to do shit they shouldn't be doing. BLAME THE FUCKING POLITICIANS for gods sake. instead of making jokes about the NSA spying on citizens how about making jokes about mccain, grayham, obama, bush, etc. It is they that deserve the bad name not the NSA. Jesus christ.
