I'm a fan of all whistle blowers, and I agree about PRISM, however I don't see why a DNA swab is any different than a fingerprint.
Typical rich white boy (family money, he aint done nuthn) running a "non profit" that his folks endowed. Be transparent Cyrus,....if u still wanna take donations and throw ur lavish parties.
I didn't think that I would ever see, my own country spy on me. Look down on me by satellite; record my downloads, every byte. And all the while tell me I'm free, then sit around and laugh with glee. Problem is they also have the capacity to spy on other countries in such a way to upset the balance of power. This can lead to other nations considering retaliation, whether or not this technology really gives the US an unfair advantage, whether socially, economically or militarily. The tipping point may simply be the assumption that it will.
I saw Buffum on the waterways today working....While you critics complain behind your desks. Funny...
The Solicitor's office can get Defendants picked up when they want to. It's not hard for them to get warrants or court orders when they need one. The basic problem is that everything is so understaffed and underfunded that no one has time to do their job any longer. The Jail is full. The prisons are full. We run both for much less than most other states. The entire system is being run according to conservative values, top to bottom.
" have previously commented that I consider her to be second-rate hack"
You are being really insulting to second-rate hacks.
Oh give me a home, where the criminals roam, and the rapist and crackheads all play, where seldom is heard, a sensible word, as our domestic tranquility goes away.. Home, Home, in SC, where the rapist and crackheads all play... where the judges fail, and let scum out on bail, who should never see the light of day...
This issue should be one that brings us all together. We need to stop this shit immediately and make Congress reexamine the Patriot Act before they make any further votes to extend any provisions.
Our elected officials and their appointees have abused the trust we placed in them.
We are the employers, they are the employees.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: What I can say unequivocally is that if you are a U.S. person, the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls, and the NSA cannot target your emails --
CHARLIE ROSE: And have not.
OBAMA: And have not. They cannot and have not, by law and by rule, and unless they -- and usually it wouldn’t be 'they,' it’d be the FBI — go to a court, and obtain a warrant, and seek probable cause.

I'm curious, what is a "U.S. Person" ?
So no direct Charleston to London QM2 service, then?
"Until Cunard makes Charleston a port of call, I couldn't give a shit."
Of course, Cunard is owned by Carnival Corp., so any finding in this case would apply to them as well, though I doubt any Cunard ship will be calling in Charleston anytime soon.
My son who is a member of a DC think tank sent me this link to an article which also makes similar points... http://davidsimon.com/we-are-shocked-shock…
Its pretty easy. Cops waste too much time on DUIS, minor possession, BS charges. The real criminals are too tough to deal with. They have to be "looked after". Lazy government workers who just want to get a paycheck for being a worthless under achiever could care less.
Its about our criminal government and their focus on letting 30 million illegals roam free and be rewarded for being criminals or putting white and black youths is jail for pot.
Surely its go to be the pot right? Right?
Semantics, my friend. Again I agree with you there is more awareness now, but that awareness is also creating a heightened sense of urgency and tension which causes people to think it is a new and/or growing problem. So I think for all intents and purposes it might as well be considered as such.
Kids I have got to be honest. FXXX all you media agents for taking the piss out of vicemag. They are free to explore themes as they wish as you are too and that is the beauty of free press. So if they want to explore death and you over at Vogue want to explore the dialectics of seemingly unhealthy anorexic women in high heels so be it, each to his own. Let the reader, the consumer make up their mind as to what works for them, after all a media outlet at the end of the day should only be accountable to its readers and not to the vexed insecurities of media agents shrilling existential angst and what they deem fashionably appropriate, the double standard is beyond laughable…
Cartoon Chris Collins has a far greater mastery of the English language than real life Chris Collins...
Until Cunard makes Charleston a port of call, I couldn't give a shit.
"I would personally love to organize a public forum to flush these folks out in an effort to get YOU to actually defend your opinions IN PERSON."
That always sounds like a threat, doesn't it?
Still, go ahead. I'm game.
So the government can do a job better than a private sector contractor?
I was raised by Depression-era parents who wanted me to have what was impossible for them to have growing up as did most of my generation. What they did was from a sense that "I want my kids to have what I couldn't" Unfortunately, we misunderstood and corrupted that into "my kids should have everything they want." With the same lack of understanding, most today believe "we deserve everything."
The irony actually is that by acting in a noble way, my parents inadvertently set in motion a process that was destined to bring society back to the conditions that caused their actions to begin with.
Perhaps my sarcasm meter is not as dysfunctional as your attempts to convey sarcasm.
And finally, as I said, first time I've agreed with Tara. I have previously commented that I consider her to be second-rate hack trying to jump on the Limbaugh-Beck bandwagon.
