    Just heard the director of the FBI say in his NSA testimony that "Nothing we do for the sake of national security is illegal."

    There was a Chinese curse: let thou live in interesting times! I think we are there.
    Please, discuss.

    And remember, Big Brother is watching you.
    I haven't read the book, I hear it is quite good.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Re: 1984

    OK, some think this book wasn't prophetic. Actually folks, Orwell described the world after WW3, the so called "age of the Antichrist". So, it is prophetic. These things are yet to come full scale, although we have seen some remarkable manifestations already in the 20-th century.
    I probably won't be alive to see it but some of you will.

    It may as well be WWIII the way Obama is helping to oust governments in Africa for his friends involved with Arab Spring.

    Why is it that republicans like a big military, and use it sparingly, and democrats like a small military, and use and abuse the hell out of it?
