The NSA is spying on us all in the shower.

It is time we campaigned for the abolition of the NSA, Department of Homeland Security and closed Guantanamo Bay.

Conan O'Brien and Chelsea's Nude Shower Fight!

Lets campaign for the end of surveillance in the US and protect privacy for all!

Obama is still waiting for Putin's input. Putin already OK'd NSA surveillance of terrorists. He is certainly against NSA surveillance of Russians. He has yet to allow Obama to continue to use the NSA to spy on Americans.

Snowden is a traitor. He handed our surrveillance secrets to our enemies who now are so confident in their abilities to spy on the USA and block USA intelligence-gathering that they now are so bold as to suggest how the NSA should be used.
really? how are they spying on us now?

you make up good fantasies, have you thought of writing science fiction?

did you say that about Bush when he started this program with absolutely no legislative or judicial oversight at all?

or are you, once again, just parroting things you cannot possibly comprehend as you are far, far too stupid?

i think we all know the answer to this...

Yes, really. How do you think Putin got the information to warn Obama about the bombing of the Boston Marathon? You forgot that already? Allow me to remind you that, even though we received the warning, absolutely nothing was done to deter the bombers.

Sometimes, fact is harder to believe than fiction.

Kind of like Churchill not warning FDR about Pearl Harbor.

Ummmm.... You asked how Russia is spying on us and I demonstrated. Now, you say they "tracked" them. You evidently don't see that tracking is a method of spying. That doesn't make you stupid. Just clueless.

When you introduce fantasy figures such as "The Anti-Christ" and start comparing any American president to a non-existent evil entity, you lose all authority. If you argue within the parameters of what is real, you may have a case. But for now, who can take what you say seriously? Obama the Anti-Christ. Jesus! Grow up.

Oh, and while you're at it, don't forget that historical context matters. Nothing occurs in a vacuum. Presidents inherit policies and statutes proposed and enacted by their predecessors and by the Congresses that served with them. And constitutionally they can't act, for the most part, unilaterally.

The Commander-in-Chief gets caught off guard once again.

Only NOW is he interested in checking into what is going on UNDER HIS WATCH.

We need a strong LEADER, not the "Excuser-in-Chief".

Will you be spending eternity in heaven with the virgin-born Son of God Jesus the Christ or in the lake of fire with the Kenyan-born son of perdition Obama the Antichrist?

Eternity? That's silly. Didn't anyone ever tell you that we human beings are mortal? Son of God, indeed! Lol. "Virgin-born". It was an inspired explanation for an unintended pregnancy. What about a gingerbread house? The old woman who lives in a shoe? Animals that speak English? A white European Christ? Or people living alongside dinosaurs, like The Flintstones? Grow up. Deal with reality--not some fantasy. Life on earth is reality. Yours must be miserable if you're looking forward to some imagined hereafter. No wonder you're so full of hate.

Just tell me there are no naked communal showers in paradise and I shall be saved. God bless the Grand Old Party and President Nixon for Title iX. curses on Democrat Lyndon B Johnson for sending troops into Vietnam.

Yes. It is interesting that people will accept all sorts of fantastic religious stories.

Unfortunately, while they are wrapped up in their belief systems, their daily FREEDOMS which impact their very life on earth, doesn't seem to be a significant factor in their lives.

When one is used to believing on a 'god' who rewards and punishes it is way too easy to allow the government to also 'lord over' the people and overstep its authority, like the NSA is doing.

According to the liar of they year " if you like your insurance , you can keep your insurance " this is the same as believing spying by the NSA will be reviewed , Benghazi will be investigated and Blacks will be charged with hate crimes
