most of us are not directly affected by some of these events, so it's easy to think he's exaggerating.

As recently as May, shortly after he retired as NSA director, Gen. Keith Alexander denied that Snowden could have passed FISA content to journalists.

“He didn’t get this data,” Alexander told a New Yorker reporter. “They didn’t touch —”

“The operational data?” the reporter asked.

“They didn’t touch the FISA data,” Alexander replied. He added, “That database, he didn’t have access to.”


keith alexander lied again.  surprise!
Files provided by Edward Snowden show the extent ordinary Web users get caught in the net of surveillance.

if we made a list of national myths, it would be quite long.
 
"Most disturbing is the realization that the American dream—the notion that we are living in the land of opportunity—is a myth. The life chances of a young American today are more dependent on the income and education of his parents than in many other advanced countries, including “old Europe"".

I hadn’t realized when I was growing up in Gary, Indiana, an industrial town on the southern shore of Lake Michigan plagued by discrimination, poverty and bouts of high unemployment, that I was living in the golden era of capitalism. It was a company town, named after the chairman of the board of U.S. Steel. It had the world’s largest integrated...

i could have noted that the author is joseph stiglitz.

"In fact, Geithner’s attempts to justify what the administration did only reinforce my belief that the system is rigged. If those who are in charge of making the critical decisions are so “cognitively captured” by the 1 percent, by the bankers, that they see that the only alternative is to give those who caused the crisis hundreds of billions of dollars while leaving workers and homeowners in the lurch, the system is unfair."

on the other hand, he ignores the little detail that the planet cannot support exponential growth, with the only question being how soon that becomes overwhelmingly obvious to all.  it is an inevitable dead-end.

from wikipedia:

Sometime during his stay in the United States, he and Thomas Jefferson entered into a secret arrangement whereby Jefferson agreed to translate Volney’s Ruins of Empires into English. Volney visited Monticello for two weeks during June of 1796. The two men also met on several occasions at the American Philosophical Society (APS). Jefferson was President of APS at the time and sponsored Volney’s induction into the organization. These meetings provided the two men with ample opportunity to conceive and discuss the translation project.[1] Jefferson, then serving as Vice President under John Adams, appreciated the book’s central theme—that empires rise if government allows enlightened self-interest to flourish. This theme, Jefferson believed, represented an excellent summary of the Enlightenment-based principles upon which the United States was founded. However, Jefferson also insisted that his translation be published only for certain readers due to the book’s controversial religious content. Jefferson, who was preparing to make a bid for the presidency of the United States in 1800, was worried his Federalist opponents would attack him as an atheist if it were known he translated Volney’s supposedly heretical book.[citation needed]

According to the evidence discovered by the French researcher Gilbert Chinard, Jefferson translated the invocation plus the first 20 chapters of the 1802 Paris edition of Volney’s Ruins.[2] These first 20 chapters represent a review of human history from the point of view of a post-Enlightenment philosopher. Presumably, Jefferson then became too occupied with the 1800 presidential campaign and didn't have time to finish the last four chapters of the book. In these chapters Volney describes “General Assembly of Nations,” a fictionalized world convention wherein each religion defends its version of “the truth” according to its particular holy book. Since no religion is able to scientifically “prove” its most basic assertions, Volney concludes the book with a call for an absolute separation of church and state:

From this we conclude, that, to live in harmony and peace…we must trace a line of distinction between those (assertions) that are capable of verification, and those that are not; (we must) separate by an inviolable barrier the world of fantastical beings from the world of realities…[3]

Since Jefferson didn’t have time to complete the translation project, the last four chapters were translated by Joel Barlow, an American land speculator and poet living in Paris. Barlow's name then became associated with the entire translation, further obscuring Jefferson's role in the project.[4]

how many millions of dollars can be given away to the greediest voices?  after they have the money and weapons, how will they use them?  we have no idea, but we're about to find out.

the important thing is to spend the money.
