How free are we really ?
Can we call this one big library for the select few, paid for by the many or not paid for given the outstanding debts and debts created merely by the interest on the debt outstanding.
Yesterday a big stink was made about reuters allowing paid subscribers to get released data early and than even a select fewer that paid more to even get it seconds faster.
Sadly many don't release that when they finally do release their surveys that said information has already been leaked many times over ~ undeniably even leaker before its leaked earliest to its highest paying high frequency subscribers.
Its all just B S...
A bunch of cowboys looking to rip each other off.
Heck before you can even click to see it, they've already placed and had in place thousands of bets before your screen loads.
Some readers are like wtf is he talking about now ? and yes the L's dont wanna work on my keyboard its rather annoying...
Now an interesting fact:
NSA officials have said the agency chose the Bluffdale location over 37 others because electricity is cheaper here, and land more easily available. The center will constantly use 65 megawatts of power — enough to power 33,000 houses.
So much for all those tree huggers wanna be save the planet types as this spy center is total overkill.
They say they stopped like 12 small scale plots by spying on everything we do without any warrants or probable cause other than paranoia...
But what plots ? hell the last plot was stopped by the canadians and the one before that was stopped because of a concerned citizen who saw something he thought was odd at times square and than the idiot wanna be terrorist used the wrong kind of fertillizer so it wasn't gonna explode anyways.
They stopped squat... hell a lot of this can be stopped either by making smarter foreign policy decisions or simply making the penalty for such attacks so horrendous that no one would dare or once done no one associated with said attacker would see the light of the next day.
We are paying for what we don't want.
Back in the day the gov-ment was doing the same thing, but it was only spying on citizens of any known worth ~ FBI has had files on such people such as Steve Jobs, Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplan, etc etc.
Now we are data mining even pets. Let alone every keystroke, email, and phone call as well as your location.
They tell you its classified.
So is the bill.
Just another way to rip you off.
