Opinion: "Sunday's incident is not about some isolated individuals or a handful of idiots and morons, as some media and authorities have described racist supporters. Instead, the focus should be on the deep-rooted racism that persists across European societies, on the institutions and authorities whose years of lip service have so dismally failed to protect black players and on all those in the game, as in society, who stand silent and thus complicit." http://trib.al/syeu3Kd
Kudos to Dani Alves for his stunt, but where is the outrage?

Is the NSA Spying on Congress?

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Friday asked the National Security Agency director whether the agency has monitored the phone calls, emails and Internet traffic of members of Congress and other elected officials. “Has the NSA spied, or is the NSA currently spying, on members of Congress or other American elected officials?” Sanders asked in a letter to Gen. Keith Alexander, the NSA director. “ ‘Spying’ would include gathering metadata on calls made from official or personal phones, content from websites visited or emails sent, or collecting any other data from a third party not made available to the general public in the regular course of business?”

Sanders said he was “deeply concerned” by revelations that American intelligence agencies harvested records of phone calls, emails and web activity by millions of innocent Americans without any reason to even suspect involvement in illegal activities. He also cited reports that the United States eavesdropped on the leaders of Germany, Mexico, Brazil and other allies.

The Obama administration expects thousands of federal drug prisoners to petition for leniency after it announces new criteria for clemency later this week, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Monday, sending the strongest signal yet that the government is serious about what could be the largest sentencing reprieve since the Vietnam War. http://trib.al/PwiQQK6

A socialist snowplow just went past my house. Will this tyranny never end?!
