    why the German press doesn't report on their own government intelligence agency spying on their own people.   For that matter the European Union passed a law in 2006 requiring that communication data be stored for 2 years.  The Data Retention Directive 2006/24/EC looks quite similar to the NSA metadata program.  Where's all the outrage about that?

      ...and your wishes may come true.

      If you are a fan of irony, that is the beauty of this all.  

      Right now, we are in the "Clinton slept with Monica" early phase.  All the EU finger-wagglers remind me of the GOP Congressman who were shocked - shocked - that Clinton would violate his marriage vows.

      Well, the press then got around to fact-checking the lives of these GOP stone throwers.  The right wingers screeched that this was a "distraction" from the real issues.  But the results were hilarious.
