Ever  wonder  how  we learned  about the  crazy  IRS  expenses   and  the  recent  Verizon  giving the  gov-ment  detailed  data  as  to  their  paid  users ?

Leakers...   people  who  could no longer keep  silent.

In  the case of the  IRS...   an  insider spoke  up  and  brought to light  how  they  spent  our money.

In  the  case of  our  gov-ment spying on phone calls  and  phone  data...  someone  leakerd to  a  british paper  and  they  brought  it  to  our  attention  and  our  government  admitted yeah  we  do  that...

The  IRS  scandal  really  pisses  anyone off  who  has  ever had  to  deal  with  them.

They  used  money intended  for  new  personnel  and  customer  service   to  basically  give themselves  additional  work  vacations.

It kills me  when  organizations  want  to  talk  about  improving  morale  and  rather  than  look  to  increase the  pay  of  their  workers  ~  they  would  rather blow  that money  on  stupid  conferences  and  so called  bs  team  building  exercises  like  group  country  line  dancing  or  disco  like centered  dancing  while  people  look and cheer ?

Probably  kickbacks  were made  and  the worst thing  is  that  they  didn't bother to keep  track of  all expenses  so  the  grand  total  of  what  was  spend is  unclear  but  what is known is  that  at least 50 million  was  blown  on  such things ?

Did anyone receive  anything  ? better service ?   instead  we  have  idiots  testifying  taking  the fifth and  others  looking  like fools  apologizing  and  swearing  that this will never happen again..

I bet they are swearing  at  the leaker who  brought  this  to the attention of  others.

Now  as  to  the other  thing  of  the  gov-ment spying on  citizens,  be careful  what  you communicate.

They are a  watching...

Constitution is walked upon  ~  leaked  spying ~

The program is code-named PRISM, and the Post reports that it was established in 2007. According to the report, the nine companies that "participate knowingly" in the program are Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple.

The NSA and FBI tap directly into the central servers of the companies. It allows the agencies to obtain audio, video, photographs, emails, documents and connection logs that "enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time."

The program has not been disclosed publicly, and is only being disclosed now after whistleblower revealed the program to the Post because of "horror" at its capabilities.

"They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type," said the whistleblower, described as a career intelligence officer, in a truly harrowing quote.

 Good post Lordz.

This is somewhat OT but it is a very important read nonetheless:

 I often wonder how far things will have to go before people en masse, actively seek change. I hope people will begin thinking about the children and not just their own. The lives they will live largely depends on the decisions we make now. "Burying our heads in the sand" will only guarantee a worse future for America.

Wow that  was a  good article money...  damn good...

thank  you.

Plus  ten  for  leakers...

Although  some  leak  for less  than honorable  reasons, as  someone who  seeks  some  truth  even  if  such  a  search  brings  pain,  its  interesting  how  some  who  would  have once  been  considered crazy  for  thinking  certain  things  come  to  the  realization  that  often  the  truth  is  much  stranger  than  the  fiction.

Too  often  the  words  national security  are  used  to  enable evil deeds  and  atrocities.

Burying  ones head in  the sand  merely  exposes  one  behind.

Only a  few  days  ago  no  one  had  heard  of  prism.

The  denials  are  already  coming.

Rather  than  having  the  gov-ment  spy  upon  me  for  my  safety  I would  rather wish  them  to  allow  me  to  simply  defend myself and  the  means  and  safety  to  do  so  without  intervention.

An  armed  society  is often  a  much  more  polite society.

Look upon  history  and  how  tyranny  and  tyrants  seek  first  to  disarm  and   than  to  discredit ~  destroy  ~  any  who  would  oppose.

After such  leaks  who  are  we  to  point  fingers at  other countries.

We have a  gov-ment  that  had  used  the  IRS  to attack  opposing  sides  and  used  its  own  spy  program  to  obtain  anything  and  everything  on  its  own.

We are living  in  the  best  and  worst of  times.
