Stories That Make Me Want to Smoke Crack

"How The NSA Gets Inside K-12 Classrooms"-- the NSA has programs to teach school children about spying, encryption and online security. The topics themselves are not so bad, but having the NSA teach them is way too creepy.

"Senators accuse government of using 'secret law' to collect Americans' data"-- "A bipartisan group of 26 US senators has written to intelligence chiefs to complain that the administration is relying on a "secret body of law" to collect massive amounts of data on US citizens." -- because nothing quite says FREEDOM, like secret laws.

"NSA spying is targeting Germany more intensely than previously believed. Secret documents viewed by SPIEGEL reveal that the American intelligence service monitors around half a billion telephone calls, emails and text messages in the country every day."

And now we learn about the incredibly wasteful "Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program, in which Postal Service computers photograph the exterior of every piece of paper mail that is processed in the United States — about 160 billion pieces last year." Because it really is good government to take an image every freaking piece of junk mail that goes to every freaking house.

Richard Clarke, of all people, says journalist Michael Hastings car may well have been electronically hacked before it blew up.

US govt officials lied about NSA programs, many times.

FBI investigated and did not report assassination plot to kill Occupy Wall St members.
