I don't really care about my government monitoring me, I care more about social media sites or companies like google monitoring me even more. Hell I can't even get my facebook deleted, and even if it is they'll still hold all my information.
User avatar #60 to #52 - tittentei (01/15/2014) [-]
Well you kinda put that information there in the first place tho. I'm not saying you did. But you did tho.
#85 to #60 - John Cena (01/15/2014) [-]
Yeah, but that's before we realized that would save all these pieces of information.
User avatar #103 to #52 - durkadurka ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
At least with google and facebook, yoyu have a choice. How is the government monitoring any better?
User avatar #109 to #103 - Darianvincent ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
I never claimed it was, I just said I didn't care about it.
User avatar #126 to #52 - hudis ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
How does it make you feel that the U.S. government is practically owned by corporations and lobbyists, then?
User avatar #127 to #126 - Darianvincent ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
About as annoyed as I am at the fact the world might run out of helium in the not so distant future. Which is slightly annoyed, that's about it.
User avatar #128 to #127 - Darianvincent ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
o.o I'm not starting a political debate just stating i'm a bit more annoyed at social media sites keeping my information than the government. On a scale to no ***** given to rustled jimmies i'm only slightly annoyed.
User avatar #129 to #128 - hudis ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
Yeah, I get that. I'm just saying it's the same kind of people who have your information through government spying as through social media sites.

Was snowden even tried in a court or ever convicted?
User avatar #20 to #16 - slapchoppin ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
nope he ran like a bitch instead of taking it like a man
User avatar #58 to #20 - konradkurze (01/15/2014) [-]
kill yourself

snowden running means hes alive to keep himself in the public image...if he handed himself in hed be 'silenced' and noone would ever hear from him again and just go back to conforming

intelligent people would prefer him still floating around keeping the issue alive
User avatar #123 to #20 - hudis ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
The saying "Bravery is just a kinder word for stupidity" really comes to mind right now.
User avatar #25 to #16 - heartlessrobot (01/15/2014) [-]
Nope, he got the **** out so the gov can't haul him off to Guantanamo where he'd get the cold towel and bucket of water treatment.
User avatar #27 to #25 - civilizedwasteland (01/15/2014) [-]
to be honest I really don't think his punishment would have been that severe
User avatar #28 to #27 - heartlessrobot (01/15/2014) [-]
Nah, you're right. He'd just disappear and never be seen or heard of again.
User avatar #124 to #27 - hudis ONLINE (01/15/2014) [-]
It doesn't matter because they have no obligation to tell you what's done to him. They could basically make him disappear and do whatever they want with him for a decade and still say he is being held in a comfortable humane cell with access to healthy food and television or whatever and that he is declining interview opportunities etc, and you would believe them like everyone else. Worst part? They wouldn't even be breaking the law by doing so. Thanks to the National Defense Authorization Act they can do that with anyone because "omg terrorism".
User avatar #84 to #27 - simmen (01/15/2014) [-]
The detention conditions prompted national and international concern. Juan E. Mendez, a United Nations Special Rapporteur on torture, published a report saying the detention conditions had been "cruel, inhuman and degrading."

That is the conditions described for when Chelsea (Bradley) Manning were detained, and trust me, the US government hates Edward much much more than they did Chelsea.

There was an issue for his extradition to be tried in court and the only promise that was made was that "He will not get the death-sentence, even though it might be a valid sentence for his crimes.", so he probably did the right thing leaving the country.
User avatar #9 - atrumaliger (01/14/2014) [-]
Apparently, it's only illegal if they say it's illegal.

'Cause, you know, that's fair.
User avatar #79 to #9 - playerdous (01/15/2014) [-]
That kind of oversimplification is annoying.
Even they'll admit to illegal actions by their own rules. The difference is they do them with little regard to the punishment which they can weasel out of. We also agreed to many of these rules (older generations at least).
#3 - John Cena (01/14/2014) [-]
Just make sure the things you reveal are ACTUALLY illegal instead of just things you happen to disagree with and therefore want to sabotage.
#68 to #3 - John Cena (01/15/2014) [-]
some of it was or were to be more correct certain acts have made that so

The oppression is starting to become similar, but the Nazi part is not. Last time I checked we're not gassing and entire race.

Patriotism has just become a nice word for it, really.
#115 to #98 - carpecarp (01/15/2014) [-]
Wait, you're actually saying that what is happening in America is comparable to what happened in NAZI GERMANY?
User avatar #117 to #115 - UberAndrew (01/15/2014) [-]
Well, considering I suck ass at history and politics whatever I say should not be taken seriously.
#122 to #117 - carpecarp (01/15/2014) [-]
Alright.

Well in a nutshell, Nazi Germany had many economic pressures and years of oppression by other countries (mainly because of World War I). Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany, and from there, the Nazi Party slowly began to eliminate political opposition, until there was nothing left of them. Hitler merged the power of the chancellor and president shortly after the president's death in 1934.

Hitler helped to create Audobahns (High speed highways), and rebuilt Germany's struggling economy through public works and massive military spending. He became popular because he brought Germany back to power, and helped to boost the popularity of the regime in turn.

The regime began to brainwash it's citizens, using various propagandas such as film and posters to teach its citizens, not to mention Hitler was a powerful orator. The government controlled everything that was said and created by it's people, including artwork and literature, completely discouraging or banning it at times.

From there, the third reich made increasingly aggressive territorial demands, which eventually led to the invasions of Austria and Czechoslovakia in 1938 and 1939. Hitler then makes a pact with Stalin, and invades Poland, sparking World War II in Europe.

You can say whatever you want about our government and what they do wrong, but never compare us to that. We joke online about how free we are or that other countries wouldn't have what it takes to be 'murica, but we get to say those things daily, and the government doesn't kill us for it. Yeah, it's a little messed up that they're spying on us, but do you seriously think they're spying on you or me? Unless you're making bombs in your basement, or plotting to overthrow the president, I'm sure they haven't even come close to monitoring you or any of your friends.

I leave you with this 'murica, cause 'murica.

Oh yeah, I love our cult of personality, our one party system, our singlemindedness in our political, social, and cultural issues. I love our booming economy, I love our annexation of other countries. OH WAIT, WE ARE NOTHING LIE ******* NAZI GERMANY.

I hate when people dont like one litlething its immediatly nazi germany. At least make the correct analogies. GOSH *scoff*

There's a difference between exposing something scandalous and exposing the way your government finds the terrorists
Stop having extreme right and left wing fights and figure out exactly what is right and what is wrong, because if you can't, than I don't want to live on this planet anymore

hey guys, just a note here but i've been seeing a lot of "nsa" responses and stuff, so let me make this clear. every government, in the history of governments, has in some way shape or form spied on their people. it shows the public mood and attitude towards them. it helps find illegal activities. the nsa is just an official monitoring program that has probably been in effect far longer than its been formally established.
User avatar #114 to #97 - kinginyellow (01/15/2014) [-]
It's probably because of their recent moves, not just the NSA in general.

What if he's one of These anons? I've heard stories of the agents of NSA, IRS and even Illuminati or Masons disguised as anonymous users of Internet. You must be really careful or else they'll get you.

PROTIP: Don't use a shower. They have Norman Bates in your bathroom. Like seriously, have you ever heard strange noises in your house? It was Bates stealing your food, waiting for orders from Mason Lodge to kill you.

They hide secrets to protect the stupid population, i don't give a **** about sherlock snowden, it was his own fault.
