Why doesn't congress just subscribe to the Guardian for information?

So they have gone from the the "fine and granular scope and with pinpoint precision of Carnivore" To NarusInsight which was designed to spy on pretty much everything. Now we have prism thats collects EVERYTHING from all kinds of different sources and stores it till they want to examine "your files".

So care to guess whats next? I know they are already working on it, we see bits of it coming out but being used differently.

What is next is where they just access it from your brain directly.. You won't have the ability to hide anything, at least if you remember it you won't be able to. mark my words, its coming.

Think back people, this has been going on for decades... WAAAY before 9-11. Remember project Carnivore?

When they got caught snooping with that they said..Oh no, its very targetted and specific as to what traffic it goes after, we are only spying on those we have a court order to do so on. Of course everyone was outraged!! for a week or so, then came NarusInside which is a Mass Surveillance System. But its like the Wizard From OZ, can't see behind the curtain you pesky little citizens. Now bending the light even further we have Prism. BUT we are here to protect you.. you want to be safe don't you, trust us!!

Congressmen get elected to positions over their heads - rising to a level of incompetence.

Please do not confuse US politicians with Americans. They do not represent us.
