Let's just for a moment set aside the source reporting this. Where there is smoke, there is fire. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/06/justi...

Let's also consider this with respect to national security:

what sense does it make to have such a Behemoth Machine in place, snooping with unchecked powers, hidden from the public eye on its own citizens, and transcending even Constitutional limits -- when the immigration laws go unenforced, the ports and borders remain open and completely unprotected, no diligent background checks are done on anyone seeking entry into the US?

Wouldn't that state of affairs lead to the logical conclusion that whatever machinery runs under the cover and excuse of "national security" is solely in place to be misused and abused against its own citizens?

Some have argued today that banks have the same kind of information on the citizenry. Granted, that is likely true. But if true, and the privacy of the citizenry is violated, the citizenry has RECOURSE against a private bank. The citizenry has not such recourse against what is held firmly under the control of an all-powerful government that operates unseen and away from public scrutiny.

Additionally, such an apparatus cannot go undetected for long by other intelligence communities worldwide -- I'm certain this was known to the Chinese and the only ones left in the dark were the American People -- the very defenseless targets of this machinery, since it stands to argue that other intelligence communities worldwide would have kept pace with their defenses to counter this apparatus.

And lastly, consider this: maybe (for the sake of argument) this was used for legitimate reasons, and an argument could be made that discovery of this endangered national security -- then what would happen if another intelligence (for instance the Chinese) system would manage to acquire control over this behemoth machine -- then the American People overnight would come under the control of a foreign, hostile power, would not know about it and this entire machine would completely circumvent and neutralize the 2nd Amendment. Fine-tuned targeting of key citizens and groups of citizens could occur, the masses would never notice until it was too late. It would make sense that such a hostile power would want to integrate into the behemoth machine a database on all guns legally owned in the country.

Scary beyond belief.

Though some may still argue that this revelation was a major blow to our national security, I am glad it was revealed. Because it is a double-edged sword of too great a power that could at any minute turn against WE, THE PEOPLE.

As the Founders indicated, where there is concentration of power, confidence and trust are completely misplaced.

------------------------

"In questions of power...let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." --Thomas Jefferson: Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

"Confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism. Free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence." --Thomas Jefferson: Draft, Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

"It is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power. Our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go." -- Thomas Jefferson: Draft, Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

"Is confidence or discretion, or is STRICT LIMIT, the principle of our Constitution?" --Thomas Jefferson to Jedidiah Morse, 1822.

"Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people." -- Thomas Jefferson to Isaac H. Tiffany, 1816.

"The elective franchise, if guarded as the ark of our safety, will peaceably dissipate all combinations to subvert a Constitution, dictated by the wisdom, and resting on the will of the people." --Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Waring, 1801.

"Unless the mass retains sufficient control over those entrusted with the powers of their government, these will be perverted to their own oppression, and to the perpetuation of wealth and power in the individuals and their families selected for the trust. Whether our Constitution has hit on the exact degree of control necessary, is yet under experiment." --Thomas Jefferson to M. van der Kemp, 1812.

No, use Cloward & Piven.

Every text, tweet, phone call, text message or post should contain in addition to the original message a blasphemous remark about Obama or Holder, or both. That will give them more than they ever bargained for.

Imagine going through 90 million texts, messages, tweets, phone calls, etc. every day because each one says something blasphemous about Obama or Holder, or both.

Obama is a whitie wannabe who murders gay Ambassadors.

Well, folks,

Since the NSA went to all the trouble to obtain a warrant to grab telephone, messaging, texting and tweeting data on all law-abiding Americans from the phone companies ("on a hunch" no less) lets give them results as well as an eye- and and ear-full and make the whole darn data-grab worthwhile for them -- and fun for us. Let's give them more than they bargained for.

Let's ad to every single phone call me make, every text we send, every communication we transmit a blasphemous comment about the Communist Messiah in the White House and his crony Holder in the DOJ. We can continue doing this until July, when the court order expires.

Pass it around, take it viral.

Obama and his crony Holder are freakin' Communist traitors.

Aquarium Owner's Manual
by: Gina Sandford
ISBN: 0-7894-9677-1

Especially interesting for you towards the last third of the book regarding tank setups, number of fish, and other requirements depending on species.

Keeping fish can be very rewarding if done correctly, but if expanding too quickly too soon, it can become very time-consuming and expensive very quickly. Aquariums are also a matter of exact science. Depending on the fish, a mere degree in variation or just a slight change in ph balance can lead to death. Some fish are more tolerant to that kind of abuse than others. Start out with the fish you got and see whether you can get that one to survive for two years. Then -- depending on budget and time availability -- you can expand.

Hope that helps.

It's a plan!

Children should not be sexualized in any way, shape or manner, neither by heterosexuals nor by homosexuals, and they should given their inalienable right to innocence until they naturally come of age. The Scouts should be a safe-haven from all matters sexual.

The charter of the new Scouts should state that any allusions or references to anything sexual will result in expulsion.

It's been circulating through my Legislative District.

I'm considering having it printed up and tagging my Democrat Union neighbor's car.
