Comment: Batsh*t Crazy??

Batsh*t Crazy??

I'll tell you batsh*t crazy. It's anyone who thinks these surveillance programs has anything to do with tracking, listening, discovering what a "red dirt" Arab is doing from a cave on the other side of the world. You could take every Al Qaeda activist in the world of 7.5 billion and fit them into my horse corral. And then to spend a trillion $ to track 'em? Who would believe that? Bill Maher?

The elephant in the room is and has always been (can you say Watergate?) about keeping up with and identifying political dissent. It's about them knowing what WE are thinking... not DOING. Hell, WE don't DO ANYTHING, but just in case WE might they will have nearly ALL the info needed to control a situation as it might unfold. Control is so much easier if YOU ARE WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO CONTROL and LEAD IT,(can you say war on drugs? arms smuggling? OWS? Taliban? Al Qaeda? Insurgents... anywhere in the world?). There you have it... and why.

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.
