"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,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
Time to encrypt meaningless drivel and disseminate it far and wide.
Oh yes, and the obligatory: FU Keith Alexander.
Nefarious activity or merely a means of keeping the NSA’s nose out of citizens’ daily lives?
Good satire always has a large dose of truth in it. This one almost sucked me in again. I like it.
The fact that a person would send an encrypted email is, by itself, an indication that nefarious activities may be underway, Alexander maintained. I mean, if youre not doing anything wrong why are you going to the extra trouble of encrypting your communications? Innocent people dont behave this way.
People are reacting by covering their e-mail with new sites. Big Brother is angry.

The National Security Agencys widespread warrant-less snooping was justified by Director, General Keith Alexander, as an essential component of our efforts to protect the Government from hostile adversaries.
He views his mission as "protecting the government", not protecting the American people.
Ohhhh, it’s satire...nevermind.
Ya know why people REALLY use envelopes..?
Cuz they’re mailing info about murder and drug-dealing.
Its completely obvious.
Clothes are fine, sure but do you know why MOST people wear clothes?
In order to conceal guns and grenades.
Clothes add to metabolism in NO WAY AT ALL.
almost ALL gang bangers wear clothes and spies also wear clothes.
Why do we permit this..?
The fact that a person would send an encrypted email is, by itself, an indication that nefarious activities may be underway, Alexander maintained. I mean, if youre not doing anything wrong why are you going to the extra trouble of encrypting your communications? Innocent people dont behave this way.And sending e-mail about protected medical information through the e-mail system without encryption is a violation of HIPPA and therefore a crime. So which is it?
And how about Virtual Private Networks?
“Privacy is a threat to national security.”
“The Constitution is a threat to national security.”
One of your best yet, John.
Mailing a letter in an opaque envelope is, by itself, an indication that nefarious activities may be underway.
I think this entire incident has destroyed the entire “cloud” industry BS.
It als means that subscription based programs are doomed to failure (is adobe listening? is ms listening?)? Those subscriptions mean access to private computers.
Cloud computer is just a sucker marketing gimick to sell server space.
The idea that we should obtain warrants before we gather vital intelligence is absurd, Alexander asserted. Should a soldier on the battlefield obtain a warrant before he pulls the trigger on his rifle?
Sounds pretty close to the rules of engagement that Obama has forced on to our soldiers.
