I’m glad that Edward Snowden reminded us about the NSA. I’ll be grateful for these warnings the rest of my life. Technology has made it so easy to spy upon us that governments can’t help themselves. I should keep that in mind as I go about my fascinating life, creating endless cyberfiles of telephony and e-message metadata because I refuse to cook for myself and can’t stand to wait in line. There are maybe 50 people that read this blog. But there are probably 51 tera-giga-booleybytes of marghadata stuck in the trap of government’s basement bathroom sink because this place exists, because the sun goes down and that bitch called ‘sleep’ never fully arrives. She plays footsie with my computer the minute I get out pen and paper to get my thoughts straight, but she won’t come within a desert mile of me. Even though I’m flesh and blood. Back in the day, that counted for something.
Right, thank you, Ed. Thank you, Glenn. Yes, the Peeping Fed is even more annoying now than it’s ever been. I better remember that. And now would be a perfect time to thank you, 9/11. The many ways, even now, you shit on my life enchant and delight me. Forget the seventh inning stretch, a decent Dodger game could use a cherub-cheeked six year old to totter to the mound and skree God Bless America every time someone strikes out. Could I have more warplanes, please? Thank you. Everybody on your feet now, the niece of a Deloitte & Touche accountant waited her whole life for this moment. Amazing how polite we’ve become just because George W. Bush was a crapwitted turd. Tell you what – you want to become the world’s only superpower? Here’s how you manage that. First you elect a rawhide mallet for president, then you wait in line four hours to get on your flight. Your Southwest flight. To Glendale.
“Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had,” Greenwald said in an interview in Rio de Janeiro with the Argentinean daily La Nacion.
Oh yes Edward is a God. Be kind to us Oh Lord.
“The U.S. government should be on its knees every day begging that nothing happen to Snowden, because if something does happen to him, all the information will be revealed and it could be its worst nightmare.”
Dear almighty Glenn, don’t throw my country inna’ tha’ briar patch. Anything but that.
