Patriot Act opened up NSA practices. And as you can see people aren't as mad as they should be. They eased us into it because of our open knowledge of the Patriot Act. To even accept that our government allowed the NSA to commit numerous felonies and then blame Snowden for leaking it is outrageous. The NSA had and has no legal authority whatsoever to spy on Americans. After being made aware of this, the blame should have focused on the NSA. PERIOD.
To even excuse the government is outrageous. We have warrants for wire-taps to which are granted almost 100% of the time by judges to law enforcement. GET A WARRANT
In an open society that allows for ownership of weapons...we will never be able to prevent gun violence, so we shouldn't full ourselves into this fantasy that background checks are the answer. It isn't.
It's a goddamn shame that innocent people have to die on this planet, but they do.......part of life. I never could understand when people say " He was at the wrong place at the wrong time" NO! victims are usually where they should be......doing there thing
I, disagree on the outing of the NSA. If we every would have anything close to another 911 or a Boston Marathon bombing. I, can hear it now we had the technology way did't we use it! You have this guy looked upon as some type of hero! To me he is a TRAITOR.
As to the gun law: BAN the concealed weapon law and pass: ALL WEAPONS much be carried openly like in Old West!!!!!
