The Rest Of The World Is Absolutely Disgusted With Our Big Brother Spying Methods
By Michael Snyder

The rest of the world has found out that the U.S. government has been listening to their phone calls and watching what they do on the Internet and they do not like it one bit. Outrage has been pouring in from all over the planet, and one member of the European Parliament is even comparing the NSA to the Stasi. But instead of stepping back and reevaluating our Big Brother spying methods now that they have been revealed, Barack Obama and other leading members of Congress are defiantly declaring that there is nothing wrong with these methods and that no changes will be made.

The U.S. government is going to continue to invade the privacy of the citizens of the rest of the world as much as it possibly can, and our leaders don’t seem to really care what the international response is. And make no mistake – the goal of the U.S. intelligence community is to literally know everything about everyone. The chief technology officer of the CIA, Gus Hunt, made the following shocking admission back in March: “We fundamentally try to collect everything and hang onto it forever.” He followed that statement up with this gem: “It is really very nearly within our grasp to be able to compute on all human-generated information.” In other words, they want it all, and they nearly have the capacity to gather it all already. So where does this end? Will the U.S. intelligence community ever be happy until they have every piece of data on every single person on the entire planet? Do we really want a government that collects “everything” and hangs on to it “forever”?

We'll see.If worldwide crime and terrorism decline over the next few years everyone should be in favor of it.With a world population of over 7 billion people adjustments were unavoidable.It appears that at first we want to be a safe and secure nation until we realize what it takes for that to come to fruition.We are a hostile species.We bear watching.

>>>We are a hostile species.We bear watching.<<< Pay attention, 8:35. This administration only wants to penalize the law-abiding and self-supporting. Parasites, illegals, progressives, unions, perverts, criminals, and terrorists all get a free-ride. The 'hostile' elements have more freedoms than ever before.

Just think of it as a central nervous system for planet Earth.Once the kinks are worked out and the elements sorted one might be surprised at how well it all works.True progress always meets with resistance in the beginning,but one might question when the beginning actually was.Most agree that it became imperative after 9/11,but the Bush Admin never went public with it.By the end of his 8 years in office we were well into that which we have just now become aware of.Bush saw the need for it as does Obama.
