Yep. I'm surprised, it got through without anyone on the internet noticing until afterward. Just one rep caught it, not that it helped. And remarkably little reporting on it.

Granted it's just retroactive immunity stuff for the administration, I'm guessing they've got to set things up to make any future attempts at prosecution fail before they even have a chance to get off the ground.

It's so cute how all the little politicians create these bills like ACTA, SOPA, PIPA, etc. and they're just watered down versions of whichever the first one happened to be, and then when one of them finally passes, they push and push until they had exactly what they wanted from the very beginning.

If your bill does not pass, you should not be allowed to present it again for some time. And you should not be able to simply take the contents of the bill and call it something else.

Congress does shady shit like this all the time. They also just gutted the wall street reform too. Nothing is going to change until lobbying is made illegal which will never happen

Reddit can actually be good with keeping you up to date on recent happenings, thought they aren't any good at analysis or even accuracy.

EFF and ACLU are good sources to see what they're worried about, other than that I'd suggest just keeping an eye on whatever journalists who've written worthwhile articles on the subject.


As an aside, I suspect the timing of the torture report information isn't a coincidence.

Let me see if I understand this correctly:

Rather than create legislation about giving them increased surveillance powers, they hid this shit in the yearly vital budget bills that always pass, knowing no one would read it?

They did the same thing with the NDAA two years ago.

You're still subject to their surveillance. Not even the rich in your country are safe from it. Not even the rich in America are safe from it. Ever read 1984? The party leaders were spied on more than the average citizen.

That's still a thing? Last time I checked, the entire site was filled with CP.

Not necessarily. Based Putin is setting up alternate systems with China. Hence the proxy war in Ukraine, Syria, and the drop in oil prices as an attack on Russia.

>>275457936
It'll most likely crash when people adopt another currency for universal trade, so that's kind of a moot point

That's what gets me, for a lot of them it's just something to do or to be a part of. I've even seen some of them post they're afraid of it ending and not having anything to fill the void again.

We can't just hop to the next country. I've met more than one European who has a hard time grasping the distances involved in the US. Besides that, most people anywhere don't care about these things as long as they have food on the table and they don't have to worry much about crime.

There is literally nothing wrong with this. Harassment of women is very big right now, the online world is not a safe space for women.

This will help that

No it won't. The corporate media won't even report it.

Last time I checked you had no idea what CP means according to the law

I'm not really sure the government is so obsessed with monitoring and logging all internet communication.
Can you imagine the sheer amount of irrelevant shit that they end up logging? It seems like it would be such a large amount of information that it would be impossible to actually do anything useful with.

Fair warning, Greenwald is a drama queen. It may get on one's nerves how aggressive he is.

I love reading his stuff, but I can't stand listening to him speak. It's not the content of his words but the tone he takes.

I had difficulty listening to this:

>>275458186
They log it all because they can. They have constructed massive datacenters in the middle of nowhere in places like Utah to store it all.

They run the metadata through search parameters to build patterns and determine trends. When it comes to surveilling the public, this is more valuable than reading the contents of messages themselves.

They only actually look inside the emails and such when it's someone important, such as a politician, judge, or activist. This gives them control.

The people voting to expand the power of the NSA are the NSA's main victims, and that's why they vote to expand their power. They have them by the balls and offer them rewards if they just suck it and up and go along with it.

No. It's becoming easier and easier to sit on your ass and do nothing. Sure you'll go out and riot for a few days but after no more than a week you're going to be craving beer and a movie. Some people won't even get up from their beer and movie.

Protest and shit was fine and dandy when you didn't have something else better to do. Now you can have porn, pizza, and vidya all from one chair and a couple clicks.
