Legal "The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April. The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an 'ongoing, daily basis' to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries. The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk - regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing." Hey Americans, welcome to the club. And here we were, afraid of Google!

Think about Von Braun who made V2s for Hitler, but betrayed him and was hired by USA's defense and helped to launch rockets to the moon.

It's not because the USA call themselves a democracy, like some african countries or China, that it prevent them to operate in the shadow like a dictatorship and promote "protection through verification".

And if people gets too much liberty seeking, let's call them publicly commies, or terrorists. Found some "antrax" somewhere to legitimate a permanent state of war against everything.

And in the process, don't forget to censor those people with too much will for freedom, let's introduce the Patriot Act, because every citizen is a potential terrorist.

But not politics, they are... pure !
