Obama needs to wear a bag over his head. Big mistake-the only way they will talk to him, is if he pays them like he did Pakistan. Whats ironic, is that America can't pay its bills but he can come up with millions for our enemies. We have never had a President who hated America so much.

With the approval of his blind followers liberal democrat senators and GOP RINOs led by McCain and Graham, Obama is arrogantly and recklessly breaking international laws every day and 24 hours a day when using NSA to spy on his political opponents in America and on US allies around the world is ruining US relations with NATO allies and all over the world and making Obama the most distrustful, rogue and reckless president in US history. Where are incompetent spineless coward RINOs John McCain, Lindsey Graham and McConnell when they supposed to demand US Constitution protection of the privacy of each and every American regardless if his loves Obama or not and why would GOP support breaking international laws with US best allies resulting in distrust between US and its best allies?

I am just confused and want to ask from German people their opinion. Can a country be independent when they have 60000-70000 troops of a hostile country. I say hostile because after spying allegations it is proved that we are not friends at least. So wtf these American soldiers are doing in Germany? Why there are no campaigns to kick them out especially when there is real proof of illegal activities by Americans in Germany (spying). Do we need them here? For what? We don't need their protection? Don't my German fellows feel insulted by their presence? Is Germany a FREE country?

NSA spying scandal is calculation in several respects. First they to make you think the their technology is over whelming and there is nothing you can do. This "overwhelming" technology disclosure could steer many into forms of communication they think are safe but are not.

But do not give up the fight for privacy. Do not give up personal information on a silver platter. Make them get every bit of information legally and ethically. Demand criminal prosecution if they do not.

You are correct. What is disgusting is how germs are "outraged" at being spied on by NSA, but at the same time Germs spy on each other and their neighbors like crazy. It's time to bring that hypocritical, disgusting country to its knees.
