    Not to mention, similar situation exists in west, where 'special interest groups/lobbies' doing the same job on the behest of big corporations/rich. So it kind of evens out in that respect as well :)
  6. People like you make me laugh. Ignorant bullies, that is.

    Snowden has done no more than shined a light on the fact that the federal government is no longer "for the people," but "for the its own interests, bottom line, and reputation."

    I can't believe you wrote this with a straight face. What country is Edward Snowden currently in? When has this country ever been "for the people" and whose "interests, bottom line, and reputation" does this country care about?

    I think it will be a huge blow to Snowden's objectives and his followers, if once Obama's reform goes through there is an attack on the US. They will just pin it on what he did probably.

    Isn't it time for Snowden to "accidently" fall down some stairs or slip in the shower? I'm really starting to lose faith in the CIA.

    If Obama would repeal the Patriot Act, as candidate Obama said he would, then the Government cannot spy on you without a warrant.
