SNOOP. I knew it! I knew it, people! Everyone calls me paranoid to think that the gubm’nt has been listening to phone calls and tracking emails … I first called it out in 2009 when they built huge warehouses with storage servers, and hired a slew of people for “data management specialists”. I’d imagine processing billions of terabytes of phone and e-mail information would get a little looney to organize, amirite? Additionally, I asked a Captain at work the other day what he thought about these NSA shenanigans. His reply (get ready for this)? “I’m not doing anything wrong, I don’t have anything to hide, so I don’t really care.” Besides taking an OATH to protect and defend the Constitution with our life, I “shouldn’t really care.” If you didn’t catch it, our Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. (thanks, wikipedia). Just another example of lawmakers wiping their ass with what I swore a life oath to protect and defend. Talk about a slap in the face.
I am just so sick of the “let them eat cake” mentality (whether or not Marie Antoinette said it or not, the First Lady is the perfect embodiment). African Safaris? Hawaiian vacations? Martha’s Vineyard? Do you think this is a fair representation of the average American, or the 1%? “Do as I say, not as I do.” America, YOU voted this in. Twice.
In other news, It’s my birthday today. Yep. Larry’s taking me out.
