Response to MineralMan (Original post)

59. This is not one of the things that I tend to get instantly outraged over

Things like torture (in our name and by our people), yes, but (legally authorized) surveillance.........meh. Not saying that we shouldn't revisit all this now that the "war on terror" seems to have cooled down a bit with the death of OBL and the diminished capabilities of AQ, as well as the questionable effectiveness of such programs in the first place but what "grinds my gears" may not be exactly what upsets somebody else but I do question the hysterics and sheer insanity unleashed by all of these "scandals" being ground out by the corporate media since President Obama's re-election. I think that there is a zone to exist where we can be concerned about some things without freaking out and calling for somebody's head over it. Right?
