NSA broke privacy rules thousands of times per year, audit finds

Read it and cry, or mourn, or burst or do something to release the…anger? They simply ignore the rules, PERIOD. But Obama said “we don’t spy on you”, except that he didn’t finish the sentence; he meant to say ‘we don’t spy on you…when the equipment is not working’.

My fear is that we will become numb and used to it, like in that movie ‘Brazil’ (1985), one of those movies you must see before you DIE. It’s a funny take on ‘1984’ that actually makes 1984 seem more painful. Compare how ‘Winston’ dealt with Big Brother to ‘Sam’s coping mechanism, if I may use the term. Rent it or watch online at Amazon, or at (need java plug ins).

Still from Brazil, the movie.
