Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

But the whole point was that someone made a post being overly dramatic about the Modern USA.

I personally consider making up ridiculously huge numbers for effect, as to deflect possible criticism of the narrative of one's own country, to be part of a overly dramatic approach as well.

The point is that comparing the USSR to the modern USA is ridiculous and you know it.

TBH this sort of shit I have come to expect of you.
