Bono said today, "Working with Apple is always a blast. They only want to do things that haven’t been done before — that’s a thrill to be a part of.” This makes me wish I could travel back in time to 1983 and tell my 16 year old self that while "New Year's Day" is indeed a great single that becoming a fan of the band will not pan out in the long run.

... if you Democrats and you Republicans will, just this once, stop trying to frame this massive criminality as something that Those Awful Others are chiefly to blame for. On this matter - as in all matters of true importance to the Empire - the two wings of the Money Party are in complete, intimate, and profound agreement.

The US government has the ability to spy on every electronic communication you make, it has been exploiting that ability to the fullest for many years now, and it will continue to do so forevermore. It will do so for the sole purpose of increasing its own power. If put to the inconvenience, it will lie to your face about it. This state of affairs will prevail regardless of which branch of the Money Party is in power. And there isn't thing one you can do about it.

At this point, I'd expect nothing less from him. But isn't it silly to complain about the NSA? We have reached the point in our slide into fascism that the government loudly proclaims the "right" to - and in at least several cases that we know of - actually has executed American citizens without trial. (Including a 16 year old kid from Denver whose "crime" was having the wrong father.) To complain that such a regime is also spying on your communications is a bit like complaining that one's torturer has bad breath.
