Spying on terrorists, communists (china, russia), criminals is OK, but spying on allies is not OK. Now I know why Obama got his Nobel Prize.

But that's what Topix is for. On Topix, snippiness outdoes reasonable content by at least 100 to one.

Snowden laid bare all the sneaky things America does to her neighbors, and friends across the world. And when they got tired of spying on those people they decided to spy on Americans. That will cost them a few votes. We are losing more, and more freedoms. Obamacare takes away many freedoms, freedom to keep your doctor, freedom to gather in groups, it is very sad now. And soon the cars will record conversations in that little black box.

Whatever treatment you're getting is not working. Your assertions are getting so paranoid, even the bats in your belfry are complaining.

Why don't you read a little. Don't take my word. You are dealing with a government that treats it's people like Hitler. And like the end days of Hitler no one wants to tell Obama anything. He was one of the last people to find out about the Disaster he calls his legacy, Obamacare. It isn't corrected yet, and since it is a design flaw, not an ordinary bug it could take months, years even to correct.

It's the domestic spying on Obama's political opponents that bothers me. He has overreached in the respect.
To hell with what the French and the Germans think.
Like they don't spy.
Right.
This spying, whether internal or external, has been going
for a decade. It didn't start with the Obama administration.
Thing is, there wasn't an Edward Snowden around ten years
ago to spill the beans, so the American people, like you
and yours, have been totally blissful in their ignorance.

This is why we can't get anything accomplished with NSA spying or the killer drones.
The republicans don't want to end the programs they just want a republican in charge of them.
