It's been a police state since 9/11, particularly in New York City. The
NSA is a reflection of that. And sadly most of your fellow Americans
are perfectly OK with that. None of this is news.
Rather than venting your words in ways that will get everything in your
home pumped full of NYPD lead, perhaps you should do what you do best,
and organize people politically. There's a difference between slimy and
evil. The people running the spying right now appear to be the former
rather than the latter. There's no need for a revolution, just an
election. That which is, can still be dismantled without violence. But
first you need to get your fellow countrymen to stop behaving like
whining frightened children. They throw around the words freedom and
liberty a lot, but have no idea what those words really mean. They say
they want to live in a free society, but their actions say otherwise.
