    Mark your calendars peeps!  Billeh put an "All of the above" choice in the poll...!  I was so surprised I clicked on it immediately.  What was the question and what were the choices again?

    Oh, TX Repukes don't want to talk about wimmins issues again.  Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.  Well, when have they ever, except to tell wimmins what to think, what to do, and be happy some mens have enough patience and money to play the role of a Sugar Daddy...?  Sooooooooo, what else is new?  News Flash:  Sky is blue, grass is green, water is wet, fire burns.  [Yaaaawn.]  Okay, what's happening in the world of vapid celebrities?  [Don't answer that.  Rhetorical question.]  Jeers unending to Repukes (or anyone else) who can't get beyond treating women like brainless twits.

    JEERS!

    Snowden sees 'turning point' in NSA reforms | AFP | 25 March 2014
    [My bold.  The money quote - more at link.]
    The White House plan would keep the data outside of government while allowing access for national security reasons, officials said.

    Key US lawmakers welcomed the proposal, and one group put forward new reform legislation along the same lines, with bipartisan support.
    In other words, government persons want to let the telecom corporations keep the info they're already collecting "just in case the NSA (or other spy agencies) need it at some point."  

    Now that they've built gargantuan structures to hold all the data, someone has to use them.... Right?

    Just how the fucking naive ARE our Cretinous Congress Critters if they would trust corporations to have access to so much of our personal data and communications...?!?  How stupid do they think WE are if they believe the majority of us would go along with this cockamamie crap?

    CHEERS to alla youz and yer furry & feathery fambly & frens!

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
