NSA and GHCQ Employing Shills To Poison Web Forum Discourse

job0 Re:Honorable behavior, dignity, and self respect.. (347 comments)

wake up masher sounds like you've drinking a bit too much of that constitutional kool-aid all "democracies" have been screwing over their citizens from day 1. this just didn't happen under Obama's watch and blaming him is weak cop out.

here is a good example that Chomsky uses at http://www.salon.com/2013/12/2...

"So, for example, if you go back a century ago, right after the U.S. invasion of the Philippines — a brutal invasion that killed a couple hundred thousand people — there was a problem for the U.S. of pacification afterwards. What do you do to control the population to prevent another nationalist uprising? There’s a very good study of this by Alfred McCoy, a Philippines scholar at University of Wisconsin, and what he shows is that the U.S. used the most sophisticated technology of the day to develop a massive system of survelliance, control, disruption to undermine any potential opposition and to impose very tight controls on the population which lasted for a long time and in many ways the Philippines is still suffering from this. But he also points out the technology was immediately transferred home. Woodrow Wilson’s administration used it in their “Red Scare” a couple years later. The British used it, too."

pick any period in history and these power hungry cunts have always been trying to stay in power no matter what. I haven't got any answers just know that what we call democracy is not working because it always allows the people in power to get away with shit.

I dunno if they were lying but your article says

"therefore useless to anyone not running Windows (and, as it turned out, Explorer as well)."

I'm using firefox 2.0 on xp and I can use virtual earth the only thing that doesn't seem work is the 3d view but the rest of it seems ok.
