I stole this reader comment from this article: http://www.economist.com/blogs/freee...gy-and-freedom


The most Popular Person in the World is Santa Claus.
He gives gifts to all the good boys.
And lumps of coal to the bad boys.
Santa knows when you have been good or bad.
Of course he has an extensive 24/7 surveillance system with millions of ninja spying elves deployed worldwide in children's bedrooms.
As every child knows, Santa always had TOTAL INFORMATION AWARENESS.

-Long Distance Intercontinental Calling
-Modern Computers
-The Internet
-eMail
-Global Positioning System
-Commercial Global Passenger Airline System
-Worldwide Commercial Jet Service
-Cloud Storage of Data
-Mobile Phone Technology
-The Smart Phone
And like Santa Claus, it monitors bad boys from a northern fortress of solitude.
It doesn't read your thoughts....Just your Facebook.

The greatest Pride of Men, is that they are held responsible for their Success.
The greatest Fear of Men, is that they are held responsible for their Crime.
Yes, we are responsible for our own actions.
Some will fear this. Others will feel vindicated.
Act as if all your actions will be observed, questioned, and judged.
Even if they aren't.
It is called being an 'adult'. Being responsible.

*** Catholics know him as an vengeful Archangel Angel
***Muslims may call him the angry Prophet Muhummad
***Agnostics may call him blind Justice with a scale and a sword

***John Lennon called him Instant Karma
This is the basis for universal morality: Do good. Don't do evil.
Any way you call it, Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
Be good.

This, if true, should be disturbing:

The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won't snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That's right, the government's sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

Not surprising since spying on people is more for political purposes than for security of this nation, so this would make sense that muslims are excluded. Spy on 80 year old grandmas who visit conservative websites and go to bingo since they are deemed more dangerous. But Obama defenders will just make more excuses for even this idiocy.

You guys miss the point. Read the latest piece by Paul Craig Roberts. He has it right.

Since 9/11 there have been what...two cases of domestic terrorism?

The absence of terrorism is the real story.

The expansion of FEMA, NSA surveillance and Homeland Security has much more to do with our expanding police state. Those willing to surrender liberty for security deserve what they get.

Ron Paul Warns US Government May Assassinate NSA Leaker Snowden

By Jonathan Easley

June 13, 2013 "Information Clearing Hous
e -- Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) said Tuesday he’s worried the U.S. government will assassinate Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old man who admitted to leaking information about two top-secret National Security Administration surveillance programs to the press.

“I’m worried about somebody in our government might kill him with a cruise missile or a drone missile,” Paul said on the Fox Business Network. “I mean, we live in a bad time where American citizens don’t even have rights, and that they can be killed, but the gentlemen is trying to tell the truth about what’s going on.”

The Justice Department is investigating Snowden’s admission. Snowden fled to Hong Kong before the revelations went public.

“[Snowden’s] not defecting, there are no signs of that happening,” Ron Paul continued Tuesday. “It’s a shame that we are in an age where people who tell the truth about what the government is doing gets into trouble.”

Paul’s son, Kentucky senator Rand Paul (R), led a high-profile filibuster last month against the Obama administration’s drone policies. Paul and others said American citizens should not be targeted by drones, even if they are believed to be engaged in terrorist activities overseas.

NSA Head Says Spy Programs Thwarted Terror Attacks

Read more: http://swampland.time.com/2013/06/12...#ixzz2W7agxZHK

Quote:
Army Gen. Keith Alexander, in his first congressional testimony since disclosure of the secretive programs, offered few details on Wednesday about the disrupted terror plots but asserted that the two government programs — they have collected millions of telephone records and kept tabs on Internet activity — were imperative in the terror fight.

The director of national intelligence has declassified some details on two thwarted attacks — Najibullah Zazi’s foiled plot to bomb the New York subways and the case of David Coleman Headley, a Pakistani-American who used his U.S. passport to travel frequently to India, where he allegedly scouted out venues for terror attacks on behalf of the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist organization.

Alexander said he is pressing for the intelligence community to provide details on the other plots.

“I do think it’s important that we get this right and I want the American people to know that we’re trying to be transparent here, protect civil liberties and privacy but also the security of this country,” Alexander told a Senate panel.

He described the steps the government takes once it suspects a terrorist organization is about to act — all within the laws approved by Congress and under stringent oversight from the courts. He said the programs led to “disrupting or contributing to the disruption of terrorist attacks,” without offering specifics.
