UPDATE: Salon Calls Me an “Edward Snowden Truther”
UPDATE: The Missing Motive of the Snowden Psyop: CISPA (yes… CISPA)
Here’s what I want.
I want access to all communications, email, snail-mail, PalTalk, Google, Hotmail, Yahoo, IM, phone calls, sex-chats, Weiner pics from Weiner, smoke signals, channeled spirits of dead ancestors, I want everything… and I want complete access to every bit of information of everything about the following people for the following reasons.
I want these things because if the whole point of collecting everything on everyone is to prevent more acts of terrorism, then we have to pay special attention to those who have a penchant to commit acts of terrorism and a motive to do so.
Sounds like common sense to me.
If someone pulls off a particularly professional looking bank job, you don’t immediately rush over to the local elementary school and start water-boarding the 3rd graders and smacking Ms. Pope around, do you?
Well, maybe in Aurora, Colorado you do, but in the civilized world, you start looking at people who have a HISTORY of bank jobs.That’s pretty deep huh? I figured that out watching Barney Miller reruns when I was in elementary school. That’s how deep that is.
I think combating domestic terrorism might just fall under that same rubric, don’t you?
Or do I need to drop out of high school, community college and the Army Reserves basic training to become a master spy sleuth before I can make that connection?
Do you feel the sarcasm?
I personally have never terrorized anyone.
I shot a bird once when I was a kid. I still feel bad about that, so if ANYONE has information on me, something is terribly wrong with their stated reasons to be collecting my personal data, isn’t there? That seems pretty f*cking simple to understand, doesn’t it? I’m not a terrorist, I never killed or harmed anyone… ergo… think it through now
But there are in fact many out there who have committed overt acts of terrorism in the past and some who are openly threatening to commit more acts of terrorism and some still who are in the latter stages of debating as too whether or not they should give some weapons and more money, more of MY MONEY, to admitted terrorists.
Here’s a hint congress and the NSA… these terrorists, as it just so happens, are mainly the ones claiming we should be ok with them collecting data complied on us, people who are not terrorists, in order to prevent more terrorism.
The terrorists want all the information they can get their blood-soaked hands on regarding the non-terrorists in order to prevent…. more terrorism.
Does that make any fucking sense?
Well it does if you are a terrorist and want to know when the townsfolk are coming with the torches and pitchforks.
But aside from that, no, it makes no sense whatsoever.
Does it sound like fighting the Global War on Terrorism or does it sound more like… oh I don’t know… TERRORISM?
So, if the whole thing is to prevent acts of terrorism, it only stands to reason that the ONLY people who are ALLOWED to collect data, should be the people who have not committed acts of terrorism for prolonged periods of time. Or VOTED for terrorism. Or TURNED their backs on terrorism. Or love their “special relationship” with nation states that are blatant sponsors of state terrorism.
In short, the agencies and the people who are getting all that illegal data and compiling it on us NON-TERRORISTS are the last people who should be getting information like that.
Do you take a 3 time convicted arsonist, put him in charge of the fire department and give him unrestricted access to matches and gas stations telling him when people aren’t going to be home and giving him the fire escape schematics for the local daycare? NO. That’s not a good idea.
It doesn’t take a high school dropout with a pole dancing girlfriend to figure that sh*t out, does it?
So, in order to even think about looking at illegally collected data in an attempt to stop terrorism, we should all be able to agree on the very simple concept that TERRORISTS should not be the ones getting said illegally gathered data on innocent civilians just trying to live their lives in peace.
After all, innocent civilians just living their lives in peace are OFTEN the TARGETS of the terrorists, now aren’t they?
That said, I purpose that since I am not a terrorist and so many in the intelligence circles are, I am given all the data to look at on who quite probably would be considered Public Terrorist #1 if they were from Iran.
And based on the criteria already established, you will be happy too know, I already have a list of people and organizations that I want complete access to everything they have done since they were in grade school.
