which means that we are not only paying the spies to spy on us, we are paying people that we already pay to help the spies spy on us.
This isn’t new at all.
When I worked for a telecom firm in the Secret Service was two floors up and tied directly into our switch.
Hey NSA...pay me directly and I’ll cc you everything. Heck I’ll even write more, just for you!
Ummm...a cellphone is a radio...for some distance all conversations are broadcast over the air....same as Rush. No tap needed.
800 bones per phone tap....bwaha...BWAAAAAAAHAHAHA.
Can one design messages that subliminally kill unauthorized readers? Horribly?
Somewhere, the ghosts of Yuri Andropov and Erich Honecker are watching the NSA and realizing that when it came to spying on their own people, they were small-time amateurs.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
When I was a little guy, my mom made me carry a dine taped into my pocket. Later, I had to carry a quarter. Of course, this change was only for making a phone call should that become necessary.
Now, I have ‘most’ of the collective knowledge of mankind at my fingertips, and I carry that in my pocket. I can access this information within seconds, 24/7 and from nearly any place on the planet.
I still carry a quarter on my keychain.... THAT remains a good idea to me, but I am starting to wonder if anything beyond my quarter is really worth what we have actually paid for it.
Let God sort em out.
