Disgruntled with NSA spying on US citizens, two senators from opposing parties have introduced a bill banning companies in California from providing essential utility services to the agency – including cutting off its computer-cooling water supply.

It's amazing that no one is married to an NSA person. No one has a neighbor who works for the NSA. No one has a brother or sister, mother or father, cousin, uncle, or any relative who works for the NSA. In fact, according to the media and everyone on the planet thus far, no one knows anyone who works for one of the largest mafia controlled agencies in history. Strange, don't you think? Or don't you --- think?

Disgruntled.... is that what a raped lady is, after being raped and murdered? Instead of being charged with rape... does her rapist get charged with disgruntling and have to eat two happy meals and promise to slow down a little bit? You corporatists are so weak and pathatic... it's sad when reporting isn't even tried a little bit.... signed a disgruntled reader..

If this doesn't work, Americans should start seriously considering marching on the NSA's HQ and data centers, and burning them to the ground (after telling the people inside to evacuate, and arresting most of them for treason - we're not killers, and actually obey laws.)

As long as this organization exists, we are all in mortal danger. Burn it down. Salt the earth where it lay, so nothing dares grow there again.

Cutting off the water supply would do little more than necessitate the build of a cooling station for that water. This sounds more like attention grabbing hype to me.


Th ey'd also have to build their own generator as would anyone else aiding them. At least someone is proposing to do something. Hopefully in time they will be more far reaching. Of course the people themselves could sock it to them by boycotting the corporate sites that assist them to spy, forcing them to make a stand (hopefully pull out of the US while taking their generated revenue away from the US).

Not to quibble, but these are STATE (of California) Senators, not US Senators.

1.7 million gallons of water is about 3 Olympic swimming pools so not exactly a huge amount. Cutting off the water supply would do little more than necessitate the build of a cooling station for that water. This sounds more like attention grabbing hype to me.

If politicians (both demo & Republicans) suddenly want to cut d faucet of d NSA , I'd be very suspicious! these guys never listen to the people! So they have to be doing it for the rich that God only knows what they have been up!(Not creating jobs or paying tax's)instead gave ya cops! Don't burn d house down that has all the answers before you find out exactly what these NSA folk Have! After that Snowdon leak was from their arena, not your pentagon or corporate oligarchs that own d USA government! My point being, these NSA guys are the gifts that keep giving for a bunch of blindfolded hijacked usa tax payers!

sad day when in order to get the government to follow our constitution and bill of rights, we have to have the states turn off water at those agencies.. thats really sad. i totally agree that the world is a dangerous place and we should be super cautious and vigilant, but its 100% obvious that they have abused that 1000x over and broken the law millions of times for their own gains, including economic spying, power, and expanding the usurping of constitutional rights.

As a Californian and a wanna be member of the alarmist tin-foil hat brigade as silly as it all may seem the more cases that are brought to court the more ways for it all to be examined. In order to wrestle down the angry octopus we are going need a bunch of different ropes for all those hairy legs.

Now that congress found out it has been spied on by the NSA it's very possible there are going to be some major budget cuts.

California needs to recede from the USA..we have 40million residents along with an economy ranking in the top ten's time to rise up as a separate country, we are already the out casts of the nation seen as rebelous free loving Stoner hippy surfer fruitcakes. Oh yeah can't leave out technological pioneers


They'll spy on you anyway....

The US federal government has gotten too big for it's britches and needs to be put in it's place. The people give them their power and the people can also take it away. We need widespread civil disobedience for that to happen, on the personal and state level. California enacting these senator's bill would be a good start.

Waterlines don't work when they are filled with cement.
