    Holder and Napolitano need to go! Of course, that would mean someone in the current regime would have to accept responsibility, and that'll never happen.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Got my email notification that my bill for my cell was ready to view. My reply read, "Just forward the bill to the feds. They are using my account just as much as I am."

    I guess I could get nervous that they will actually forward that email on to the feds, but then again, they already have it.

    lol. I was going to tell everyone with Verizon to not contact me but...then I realized A) this started months ago so I'm too late and B) OPM already has an open investigation on me so it doesn't really matter any way haha. Only thing that concerns me is my brother who is anti-government and has Verizon.

    And I guarantee that every other provider is covered, too. Their orders just weren't leaked.

    Well, SHIT! Turns out it was all in our best interests all along! What a convenient statement made by an unnamed official.

    US official: Secret program helped foil NYC plot | 9news.com

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A senior U.S. intelligence official says that the secret program that tracked hundreds of millions of domestic phone records helped disrupt a 2009 terror plot to bomb New York City subways.

    The official says the plot was thwarted because of the secret collection of phone records by the National Security Agency. The official would not provide other details.
    Well you see, I KNEW that someone around here was making child porn. I heard a rumor, so I just went around kicking down doors one by one until I found the sick bastard. See? What a sick bastard! What's a few dozen--or million--kicked doors in the interests of preventing child porn production!

    ^^ Exactly!

    This entire thing angers me. Here's my recent Facebook status update:
