  •  I've heard that clip over and over (8+ / 0-)

    about how many terrorist attacks have been disrupted. I want to yell at the radio "that's not the efffing point".

    That's the old ends justifies the means argument. I know everyone has completely forgotten this because it was so many news cycles ago but this is what Bush/Cheny used to justify torture. FREAKING TORTURE! It's OK to do it as long as you get results.

    Get a brain, morans.

      I mean they conflate any possible terrorist attack anywhere in the globe with keeping me safe out here in Minnesota where I am far more likely to be killed by a mosquito.  

      I swear if we all cowered in abject terror at every other comparable threat we would never step outside the back door.  

      It's propaganda, lies and damn lies.  They insult every single one of us.   They equate keeping secret their various plots to steal every bit of our personal information including every friend or associate we've ever met with keeping secret the date and time of the D-Day invasion.  

      I did not CONSENT to this and if you do not have the freedom to give or deny your CONSENT because you are denied the freedom to know what you are not being allowed to CONSENT to then there is no CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.
