More water on the prayer wheels in this seemingly endless topic and sadly, as expected again, uninspired threading on the spot and no progress (that I can spot) by the Obama admin.
We all know that national security counts big in the US and that privacy and due process are kind irrelevant when that enters the picture. I was just curious, since political discussion lately died down on here, if people still care at all. I personally really am optimistic for the world as a whole and how it develops, but this is kinda a sting in the side for me.
So whats all of you guys' take on the Snowden affair, he brought on some change in a matter, even if its miniscule and what do you think does it say about the US nation (that is seemingly under dire threat right now, by commie terror devils).
Also, no summery, because I believe that the news who talk about this deserve the traffic, as long as people are still allowed to read the news without being punished immediately. (I mean of course they are already profiling everyone and building a case against you too just to be ready when you make a joke about the wrong thing, or something... Also its mostly metadata, which means that they can leave out anything that doesn't fit the story they are going to present at your mock trial. Maybe even the Pres will step up and prejudice your case, if need arises.)
Is this shit really worth it?
Looking forward to any pros contras and insights.
