That guy who blew the cover on this whole thing... everyone is calling him a ******* patriot and **** . This guy is not a patriot, he's a terrible person. He's a ******* asshole and idiot. The government was just trying to keep us safe but this guy ruined it and now everyone is over reacting to what the government did. I'm sorry that i'm not paranoid and think the world is out to get me... ******* nutcases. Calm down and get over yourself, you're not that important that they'd waste their time spying on you. This was supposed to protect us from terrorists and other things. If you have nothing to hide then there's no issue. I hope this guy is caught and thrown in prison for being a god damn traitor.

I somewhat agree that the government isn't out to get us and all, but a little healthy paranoia isn't a bad thing at all. Keep in mind that there have been corrupt governments throughout history, so saying that you have full trust in the government just as dumb as thinking they are out to get you. As for Snowden being a patriot or not, I don't really care. I don't think he is a hero but I also don't think he is a criminal.

TL;DR: don't act like the government is out to get you all the time but at the same time, don't act like they are perfect and are acting for your well being all the time
#294 to #290 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
Alright I guess I can agree to that. Some middle ground is always good.

You obviously know what you said was stupid. Otherwise you wouldn't have posted as anon.

"If you have nothing to hide then there's no issue."

I have a right to my privacy. It is none of anyone's business what i do and where i do it. Every one of our officials that spy on us should be shot.
#286 to #285 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
Who I am isn't what's important, it's what i'm saying. Listen to the message, i'm no one important don't worry. No on is actually spying on you... There are BILLIONS of emails and phone calls made daily. They don't have the time or man power to actually look at every one of these. They have more important things to do. You're no one important and neither am I, they wont be looking at any of our information don't worry.
#288 to #286 - Glitched (06/30/2013) [-]
Anon again. Why are you hiding? Afraid of the red thumb storm?
#295 to #288 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
I just explained it to you... my identity isn't what's important, it's what i'm saying. The message is the thing you should focus on.

Traitor? For doing what? Telling people the government is trying to watch everything you do? And I'm not paranoid or think the world is out to get me either, I just want my privacy. I don't need someone to be watching everything I do. And if a government wants to keep it's people safe, then it would do more and better things than just spying on them for the possibility that they are a terrorist.
#293 to #277 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
Yes he's a traitor. He signed a binding contract of confidentiality and he broke it. He betrayed the government with he had the contract with. No one is spying on you. There are BILLIONS of emails and phone calls made every day. They don't have the time or man power to actually look at all of these. They have more important things to do. You're no one important and neither am I, they wont be looking at any of our information don't worry.

I lack in knowledge about Edward Snowden, so I'll give you that one. Unless someone comes along to prove you are wrong, in some way.
User avatar #275 to #249 - bumpin ONLINE (06/30/2013) [-]
I hope you die a slow, agonizing death
#296 to #275 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
And why do you hope that? Because i'm not a paranoid nutcase?
#265 to #249 - darkvengence (06/30/2013) [-]
you make me laugh

#298 to #265 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
Why do I make you laugh? You make me laugh because you're paranoid and probably insane.

He got the message, he just wants the man behing it. Now do as he said. I dare you =3
#351 to #341 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
The man behind it isn't what you should focus on.
User avatar #355 to #351 - zaiopeperse (07/01/2013) [-]
We're not focusing on it, we're simply curious. Besides, we've got the message
#357 to #355 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
Don't be curious.

Can't help it. After all, I'm only human
User avatar #262 to #249 - summerx (06/30/2013) [-]
I sure am glad the government saved all these innocent citizens from those bombings and shootings.
#301 to #262 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
There would be a lot more bombings and shootings if the government wasn't doing it's job you stupid **** ... they can't stop every single ******* one but they can limit the numbers that actually occur.

-yes because governments never do anything wrong
-because there are no laws against it
-because it was totally working
#302 to #260 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
-This isn't one of those things. This is a good thing.
-Patriot act
-It is. There would be A LOT more attacks on US soil if the government wasn't doing their job. We can't stop every single ******* one you idiot but we can limit them.
#313 to #302 - happyfucktime (06/30/2013) [-]
"this is a good thing" isn't exactly a response its an opinion, and where is your proof that it is working, if I remember correctly they haven't been able to prove that spying has helped them stop any attacks, I might be wrong but this is just what I know
#323 to #313 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
The fact that you're alive right now is proof enough. If the government wasn't doing their job to protect it's citizens then there would be many more attacks.
#327 to #323 - happyfucktime (06/30/2013) [-]
I didn't say they weren't protecting the citizens, I said the NSA spying isn't working and you blindly defended it with no proof just your opinion and you're not even making sense. Me being alive doesn't prove **** . I thought you might be able to change my mind and i was willing to listen but you're just ******* retarded
#329 to #327 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
The NSA is playing a part in it, it's just there's no way we could know it. We can't tell if the NSA stuff worked or if it was just luck.
#255 to #249 - paradoxpoetic (06/30/2013) [-]
You're an idiot. If the gov't had pure intentions why did they hide it from the people in the first place? You only play in the shadows if you're guilty of something, cuntbag.
#304 to #255 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
What the guy below me said about letting the terrorists know. But also they knew the public would over react and they didn't want to unnecessarily scare them. And guess what? THE GOVERNMENT WAS RIGHT! Way to prove them right by doing exactly what they expected you to do.
User avatar #289 to #255 - zaiopeperse (06/30/2013) [-]
If they'd told the public, they'd told the terrorist, that's probably their reason. Also, I haven't really paid any attention to the whole ordeal, the gouvernment only spied on americans, no? 'Cause if they tried to pull some internet police and spied on everyone then I'm giving up on american politics.
#339 to #289 - paradoxpoetic (07/01/2013) [-]
They have the authority to spy on any internet traffic that passes through or is hosted in the USA. The includes anything Americans do as well as most of the stuff that Canadians do, among other countries. And the "terrorists" either already knew about it, or they're not able to take advantage of it. The kind of cyber terrorists that feed on this information would have noticed it long ago.
User avatar #340 to #339 - zaiopeperse (07/01/2013) [-]
That's pretty much exactly what I'm thinking (So that means they can spy on what I do if it's on ,let's say youtube, even though I'm in europe? I may have misunderstood)
#352 to #340 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
Btu they never would. You're not important enough for them to waste their time looking up and neither am I. We have nothing to worry about.
User avatar #356 to #352 - zaiopeperse (07/01/2013) [-]
Again, that's exactly what I'm thinking. But really, just the fact that they can is enough to piss me off
#342 to #340 - paradoxpoetic (07/01/2013) [-]
If the YouTube servers are hosted in USA, I'm not sure they are, but if that's the case, then yes they can do that.
User avatar #343 to #342 - zaiopeperse (07/01/2013) [-]
Well at least they aren't all-out spying on the entire internet. Even as I don't really have anything to hide (The most productive things I do on the internet is talk to friends and play video games) I still like to do so privately. for example, I can only imagine some 16-year-old intern jacking it to my conversations to my now-ex. I'd be so sad for him, y'know?

TL;DR: Good to know =D
User avatar #254 to #249 - sockbag (06/30/2013) [-]
even though the hole protecting thing didn't work.
#305 to #254 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
It is working. There would be a **** ton more attacks on US soil if the government wasn't doing their jobs you idiot. We can not stop every single ******* one but we can lower the amount that actually work.
User avatar #330 to #305 - sockbag (06/30/2013) [-]
i'm fully aware of that, considering the most recent major terrorist attack came from Americans and was at a fairly pivotal point as far as Americans opinion about the government spying on its people goes. Also i'm not sure you can assume the number of thwarted attacks, as it's confidential
#353 to #330 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
It's just common sense. If we weren't taking measures to prevent attacks there would be more attacks.
#250 to #249 - LordSweatpants (06/30/2013) [-]
If you're not worried about people knowing stuff about you why don't you sign in?
#307 to #250 - anon (06/30/2013) [-]
Who I am isn't what's important, it's what i'm saying. Listen to the message, i'm no one important don't worry.
#311 to #307 - LordSweatpants (06/30/2013) [-]
... now THAT'S suspicious.
