    anger is being directed at something that deserves anger.  I'm quite sure it wouldn't happen if Mitt was in the Oval Office, which reduces my enthusiasm a bit, but the NSA needs a check rein.  

    Funny side note, I'm rereading "The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo" series.  Fiction, Swedish author, dirty spy agencies a central theme, and this dude knows more about NSA surveillance (8 years ago) than most of us do.  It's not a secret if fiction writers can delineate in this much detail.  The crime in my opinion lies with our media and our population.  Incredibly popular books, the facts are all there, and no one thought about it.  No one here wrote about it.  

    House Hearings will deteriorate into ODS, people will turn off, the NSA will proceed unless we actually have that conversation about perceived safety vs de facto loss of privacy.  The government is in your cell phone, my vagina, my neighbor's property, everyone's aquifer.  Is that okay?

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
