I seem to remember it basically died and nobody cared for it anymore around 2002-2004 or thereabouts.
That's around when I stopped paying attention. Just too many other options and not enough time.
because I don't have the money to pay for a nice VPN
Not sure how much money you have but I highly recommend CryptoStorm. Very inexpensive, plenty of payment options, and they even have a free, limited to 128kbps, option you can use if you can't afford the higher. Read about their unique token-based authentication that separates the user account/payment information from the company.
Since charter schools aren't required by the government, your arguments are, and have been, illogical.
But we are required to pay taxes to said government that ends up funding the religious dogma in those charter schools.
It is irrelevant that we have the option to have our children attend the charter schools, paying for them is not.
in fact, it is so irresponsible to give one person access to so much secret information that either the NSA is completely incompetent or it would have a reason to permit one contractor access to so many documents.
Have you even read anything about how Edward Snowden came to be in possession of said documents? Nothing was GIVEN to him. He used other peoples accounts that DID have access to said documents via social engineering and other means.
Really? Would you say its safe to assume Germany is tapping the white house?
This has been done for hundreds if not thousands of years. Even Bill Clinton was accused of secretly tapping at least one of his interns.
