Oh yeah, I said I've always known you to be vocal... Run for office man (I'm serious). You're young, start small and work your way up... Change from the inside! Most people I say this to are way too lazy to a actually put the time into it...

There is a way of completely deleting it though. Apparently. And it takes some time.

Its not that any one person would need to protest in front of the secret service, but they can be anywhere. Its the fact that if you are within their "jurisdiction" (for lack of a better word) you can be detained, therefore jeopardizing our freedom of speech. I only used the capitol as the proverbial stage for demonstrating or protesting and where there just so happens to be a higher concentration of SS as an example.

Although I am absolutely in favor of exercising freedom of speech, I never felt compelled enough to go do it. Family and friends have periodically over the years, but they are not activists by any means. What will I do about it? - keep discussing it. I don't go around trying to change peoples' minds. Its important to discuss topics and bring light to issues that some people may not be aware of. You are right, being condescending and referring to others as "sheep" doesn't help anyone. We all don't have to agree on everything because we know that will never happen, but it is healthy to raise issues. There is a truth beyond what both sides of the media feeds us and no matter which side we stand for politically it will affect our livelihood as Americans.

After internal wrangling over privacy and civil liberties issues, the Justice Department reportedly signed off on controversial new guidelines earlier this year. The guidelines allow the NCTC, for the first time, to keep data about innocent U.S. citizens for up to five years, using “predictive pattern-matching,” to analyze it for suspicious patterns of behavior. The data the counterterrorism center has access to, according to the Journal, includes “entire government databases—flight records, casino-employee lists, the names of Americans hosting foreign-exchange students and many others.”


Notably, the Journal reports that these changes also allow databases about U.S. civilians to be handed over to foreign governments for analysis, presumably so that they too can attempt to determine future criminal actions. The Department of Homeland Security’s former chief privacy officer said that it represents a “sea change in the way that the government interacts with the general public.”

They are doing a great job with what the have (public forums). Think of the thousands of people who read these threads and get a little more informed with each post. I, for one, have learned a lot for these threads and I directly credit the posters you are referring to...

Its hard to learn anything from anyone when they are being condescending! Have you been in the Poli Section lately? That will prove what Im driving home here.

Lol. Like the people of this country have any say in what the govt. can do. Do you think people will protest? No. All you will get is some letters written and some internet forum jabber. In a few weeks this will all blow over and nobody will say anything.


When it comes to the federal govt, the opinions of people are a joke.

Nothing ever gets deleted once it's on the Internet.
