<quoted text>The ACLU reported that between 2009 and 2011 the number of people subjected to telephone wiretapping had doubled or tripled depending on the category. The government conducted more telephone surveillance in those two years than it had in the previous decade. As far as snooping through your email, the ACLU reported that the number of authorizations the Justice Department received to use certain devices to conduct Internet surveillance increased 361% between 2009 and 2011. The ACLU continued:
Earlier this year, the New York Times reported that cellphone carriers received 1.3 million demands for subscriber information in 2011 alone. And an ACLU public records project revealed that police departments around the country large and small engage in cell phone location tracking.
The difference is O'bama is a paranoid freak.
The only difference is technology and as I've already mentioned a dozen or more times__Manning and Snowden took "absolute and undeniable" proof of US spying to foreign interests__namely wikileaks and Russia/KGB

It still doesn't matter most nations and even some corporations do it (spy). Pretty sure Ross Perot (EDS) did their share eh?

Since when do rightwingers care if we spy on Socialist nations? Aren't Socialists your sworn enemies?
The Russians practically sent this administration an engraved invitation to arrest the Boston bombers.

But the Obama administration preferred to spy on 70.3 million French citizens instead.

And the bombs went BOOM!

Sure thing genius. I guess I'm just one of those throwbacks that mentors and promotes black employees of mine, showing them respect for the ones that work hard and are just Americans who value honesty and responsibility.

I know you just don't understand that type of thinking. Most of you prejudicial racists don't.

You ever hear of 'mission essential' personnel?
Not all Civil Service folks are given this distinction...
Why does the Government classify some workers as essential?
The really sad thing here is the fact that you obviously believe you asked an intelligent question. Geez!

Obviously, any worker whose job is connected to emergency response, law enforcement, health, life and safety is essential to the workings of government. Others like someone sitting on the Commission of Fine Arts are hardly "mission essential". What a stupid question.

Last time I checked, France wasn't a part of the United States. That's what we are talking about...try and keep up.
But France is still considered an ally. The only thing Realtime is right about is spying does occur in every country.

But we've breached the trust of our allies in France, the UK and Germany.

And there's good reason. It can't be denied as commonplace. Because it isn't.

Remember how the bombs went BOOM! in Boston?

This administration had the names of these terrorists and a clear warning by Russia...of all countries.

But 70.3 million citizens in France were more important.

The Kennedy Space Center is alive and well and open for business but they couldn't save everything. And besides, after The Mousetrap and The Surf closed, nothing else really seemed all that special.

The Titusville Mall is also being bulldozed.

""The NSA’s domestic spying program, known in official government documents as the “President’s Surveillance Program,”("The Program") was implemented by President George W. Bush shortly after the attacks on September 11, 2001. The US Government still considers the Program officially classified, but a tremendous amount of information has been exposed by various whistleblowers, admitted to by government officials during Congressional hearings and with public statements, and reported on in investigations by major newspaper across the country.

Our NSA Domestic Spying Timeline has a full list of important dates, events, and reports, but we also want to explain—to the extent we understand it—the full scope of the Program and how the government has implemented it.""

Of the 37 Presidents of the United States before Jimmy Carter, at least 18 or 21 (depending on which source you believe) were close relatives. That comes to somewhere between 48.6 percent and 56.7 percent-far to much to be coincidence, as any conspiritologist (or mathematician) would tell you. Of the 224 ancestors in the family tree of 21 Presidents, we find 13 Roosevelt's, 16 Coolidge's, and 14 Tyler's. Another source manages to relate 60 percent of the Presidents and link most of them to the super-rich Astor family. This data does not include genealogies of the five most recent President. Psychologist G. William Domhoff claims that a large part of America's Ruling elite, just like that of Europe, are related by marriage.

Too stupid to understand that, your statement alone is racist. What do I need you to mentor &, promote me for? I'm a grownass man, with children of my own in their pre &, early teens. Nothing you can tell me that I haven't experienced myself besides, what it feels like to be old or, white or, whatever race you are. It's indoctrinated in your genes huh! That white is right mentality. There is no right way or, wrong way to do things. There's your way &, my way! If both takes is from point A to point B, that's all that matters. You mentor &, promote your black employees. Guess the white, Mexican, Puerto Rican &, every other nationality didn't need it huh?
