So true. I wonder how politicians sleep at night.

I wish that's what They meant. :D

What really pisses me off more than anything is the apathy. "Violation of the constitution... whatever. Who wants to watch football?" :facepalm:

I don't even get a clean Internet pipe now. AT&T's head office is a ten minute drive from my house, where the NSA uses beam splitters and racks full of decryption hardware right now to spy on everyone, including me. Why not use that cash to try and desuckify my latency? There should be a law against 600ms ping.

It is pathetic :(. This will do nothing to fight real criminals. All it will do will make average citizens into criminals for doing what they like to do. Our society has been apathetic for sooooo long. This is why I am against hate speech laws and censorship because it stifles free expression and discussion. There should be mutual respect for everyone's beliefs and views regardless if you agree with them or not. This is sadly the price that is paid :(. What do we want more? A society who is free to express themselves and say what they want even though if certain attitudes prevail in society it can be detrimental to all or do we want a secure society that curbs free thought and expression to the point that we are slaves of the system?

There must be a balance between security and freedom. If either one of them goes in their extreme directions, it will harm society.

Easy, they're sociopaths.

One thing I've learned from politics is to never trust a politician to look out for your best interests, because they're all as crooked as a dog's hind leg (save a few that have managed to avoid the temptation of corporate money). They might run on good intentions, but as soon as they reach the National Mall, and get lobbiest money waved in their face, they loose touch with the same people that got them elected.

You see, they're not looking out for us anymore, they're looking out for a very, very small group of people that control the vast majority of money in the US (and, dare I say, the world?-.-). Laws like these are just to protect the aristocracy, not us. They know the people are getting wise to their bull**** (some, at least), and they're trying to put the squeeze on us.

This only further confirms to me that Obama is not going to change anything, and is just continuing the corporatist, fascist policies of the last decade (how soon we forget the Bush wire-taps ;)).

If I suddenly ever disappear from this forum, you know why...

I don't read it all, but this could be only politics:airquote: propaganda.

Sun? Naw, I'm good over here, where it rains, and our Government doesn't spy on us. What utter bullshivic. "Online Terror" Go jump off a building.
