In East Germany there was one Stasi for every 63 East German citizens.

One American Stasi from the NSA can watch, compile phone records of hundreds if not thousands of American citizens.

The NSA is going to continue to spy on Americans and there is nothing that can be done to stop it. It is a very efficient spy agency and is all military.

Ed Snowden should release more juicy info on American politicians and maybe the officials just might get it then.

The North Korea dictator can kill his uncle and a person who didn't sufficiently mourn enough for the death of the leader's father. The free world roundly condemns the actions.

President Obama sends in drones to kill people in the ME and the free world never denounces his actions.

The world is filled with hypocrites, beginning with 'officials', so it is easy as pie to see why they just don't get it.

They want to live by a double standard. No big deal, let them do it.

The East German gov found out the hard way.

We Democrats must say that it IS okay for a president, such as the one we have, that it IS okay to spy at will, and hundreds-fold of what any (R) president did, to do that to Americans. BUCAUSE of the color of his skin...to move forword and to Come Together...

You needn't be so unkind, Mr. BushandCheneylied liar.

I'm just a simple-minded drooling, drunken fool, nothing else. Makes life worth living on this god-forsaken earth.

If the NSA can manage to make it another rung of Hades, they will.

When the Republicans stop telling lies about us, we'll stop telling the truth about them. - Adlai Stevenson, Democrat from Indiana

One decent Democrat in the world after all, too bad he is no longer with us.

It's too bad Obama didn't read those words.

It is too bad the Democrats are no longer a trustworthy political party. They cannot be trusted any further than you can throw them. Same goes for the Republicans, they're useful idiots these days. They just don't get it.

It is too bad muricans have become untermenschen.

Lets talk about hypocrites as long as the wingers are wildly bloviating today. If we are attacked by terrorist, the wingers will be going wild about the intelligence community not being up to snuff. You are hypocrites and I will give you an example. Look back on how the wingers attacked the Dixie Chicks about their free speech on Bush/war and now they are going hog wild about a companies(A&E network) business decision to censure Duck Dynasty for their comments. Remember this had nothing to do with the government etc. But You right wing hypocrites continue to make fools of yourselves. The Wheeling connection needs to back off.

The phone companies have had this data for years and have released it to who knows who but, in our government hating right wing society, when the fed wants it to protect us from a terrorist strike, it becomes a threat to our very way of life.

Shoplifting is in the news and violators should be punished. What is not in the news are overcharges by retailers and especially grocery stores. Lately, if i buy more than 10 items, at least one is an overcharge. That's ok though--because it is "business". How the right will shout when the fed loses your data to a hacker--but target; that's just business.

I do believe you folks on this board have lost it. You all talk in innuendo and nobody seems to have honest debate. Hope it gets better in the new year. Have a nice holiday.

The NSA was in full force during the Clinton years and all of the skull-duggery that it involves.

Google Vince Foster and NSA. Lots of interesting results.

The current NSA phone records controversy was started in 2001 as a part of the patriot act by Whom? So, bring on that Vince Foster thingy, mule. Dont' forget to go back to J.Edgar Hoover for more secret stuff.

I feel I am really the only honest one here...I admit to our Democrat party envy and greed of the wealthy. But to move forword, we do need that greed and envy...in order to give gifts, and to help, in the name of government. Along with that greed and envy, which results in what really is theft, we Democrats feel that is the only choice our country has to move froword, and to come together. We need our Democrat Party envy, our Democrat Party greed, and our Democrat Party theft in order to 'invest' in our country, and our future....

Lets all have a Come Together Christmas and a Come Together New Year.....

I really have to chuckle on Jacka and his whiplash philosophy. Greed?? Even the Pope has commented on the economic stability of the rich getting richer. "Your" Republican party has shown they don't care for their followers but they give them lots of fake lip service. Which, you and your fellow wingers swallow hook, line, and sinker. If there is a party of greed and takers, it is yours.

The liberal does get it. The salvation they preach only begets servitude. As long as they keep preaching that someone owes them and others a life. What happened to each his own. You reap what you sow. I know someone will come up with some bs response. Go for it!
