I'm not scared of terrorists. What I'm truly scared of is that if another significant terrorist attack happens, whether or not the NSA's powers have been curtailed, DiFi, Rogers, King, Clapper, et all, will cry "See?! That's what happens if we don't have the ability to collect everything!", using the tradedy to drive us even further towards an Orwellian survailance state.
I haven't seen anyone mention yet the fact that if this was implemented in the US there would most likely be a rampant rise in drug addiction, gambling, prostitution, alcoholism, or other vices, as well as all the social ills that go along with these issues. But at least musicians could sit in their NY loft writing music which they can freely share in between rounds of shooting heroin. Oh, and no more piracy. Bully for us.
Not to mention bullet point #2 where they fail to mention that it took what amounts to a Presidential pardon of their illegal handing over of information when given a post it note from the FBI to keep them from being culpable.
Can't believe they issued a statement that is demonstrably false. Must have been written by someone at the NSA.
I have never donated to a polititian's campaign before, but even though I live in a different district/state, I will be donating money to whoever is running against Peter King in the next election. And, might I add, I have never voted for/supported a Democrat.
I hope a trend develops as a result of this where teens and young people decide to see what miniaturized banned items they can get away with through TSA's screening. I'd like to see pics on reddit of a tiny fake bomb sitting on a 747's tray table. Or a GI Joe gun posed next to the body scanner.
