Sen. Dianne Feinstein Slams NSA Spying

Sen. Dianne Feinstein Slams NSA Spying

Commented Oct 28, 2013 at 21:14:39 in Politics

“Two things. First: I wish Senator Feinstein cared about the privacy Rights (see 4th Amendment to the Constitution) of the American People as much as she purports to care about the rights of foreign leaders.

Secondly: If the outrage of spying on our ALLIES is to be rectified, you simply have to invite a person delegated by the Foreign President of an ALLIED nation into the spy collection agency room to filter the incoming information alongside the American NSA agents.”

“What further proof do the people need to illustrate the fact that America's news programs do not meet the needs of our nation than to consider this story has not been told? So called "special interests" own tv and radio and newspapers. They all are complicit in propagandizing our people. They certainly have an agenda and the new healthcare law does not fit for them. I can't imagine why our people want corporations owning our economy AND owning ourbodies, allowing OR NOT lifesaving medical care. What next? SOYLENT GREEN?”

“Wow. Took Eric the meterologist long enough to state a commitment. I quit flying in the early 1990's. Jets burn too much fuel, and all of it is emitted into the skies.”

“I am completely horrified by this clip. I think those two men should be forced to eat every last ounce of that elephant because I believe one should only hunt to survive. If they can't eat the beast within a proscribed period of time, say 6 months, they should get a year in prison for every pound that elephant weighed. Plus the bust for the stolen ivory.

Also, this show proves the point that overly rich people, like the owners of NBC don't have any human feelings or they would have known this show would upset their viewers.”

“I think the author got the original year wrong. It should have said 1973. In 1973 you couldn't get unemployment insurance if you were pregnant, and employers "fired" you if they found out you were pregnant. There was no credit for women; no home loans for women; no pill available until the end of 1973; no Harvard, Yale, etc. education; No legal termination of pregnancy, no equal pay and certainly no equal work; not even a whiff of a dream that a woman could join and impact state or national politics. In other words, women were relegated to the same strata as African Americans. I think the lowest notch was to be an African American Woman.

We women fought all our lives to make sure our daughters and granddaughters could enjoy the rights they enjoyed until lately. I just can't understand why the young of America have sat on their hands while Republicans have torn away all of the rights our generation fought to provide. I suppose if you never had a hungry day, you don't know hunger.”

“At my house many people use Netflix on occasion. So the history of the account is a conglomeration of elderly folk, middle agers, teens, grandkids. There IS NO profile of a person as it is commonly thought of. So I would say that Netflix doesn't know me at all. And since I have no choice in enumerating my menus, I have been losing interest in Netflix. It is frustrating thumbing through 10 to 15 rows of "Because you watched this" lists. Something is definately broken at the Netflix company. Their only saving grace is Kevin Spacey's new show, the only reason I haven't signed out.”

“The problem with Mr. Obama is that he considers "the" economy to mean the success of Wall Street. Of course normal working people, which includes small business owners all across America; see Wall Street as a hungry octopus, sucking the life blood out of each and every township in the nation. While Janet Yellen is sensitive to the needs of the nation as a whole, Mr. Summers has proven time and time again; to be a Wall Street Man, start to finish.

So this appointment will at long last, explain to the simple people who don't follow the national news, just what is wrong in America. We have a president who is a republican in democratic clothing. He is going to choose Summers because that is his JOB to do so, and if he doesn't do it, he won't be invited to the "Gazillionaires" party after he leaves office. Instead he will be shunned like Mr. Carter.”

“First, I must say that the "goggle" disallowed my search for a female candidate for this office. Hmmm. Just how much IS "goggle" helping their spymasters? Secondly, Larry Summers is fully not capable of fairness to all the people and therefore would make an awful secretary of the treasury. Remember, this is a more powerful position than the President in the USA. Really. Thirdly, there is a fantastic candidate, Janet Yellen, the vice chairwoman of the Federal Reserve Board. She is fair, smart, capable, knows what is going on in every facet of our ruined economy.

Why is it that Obama favors sticking to the status quo, which is a top down view of our economy, and which has ruined the lives of millions of American working people? Why does Obama keep going on the road with his dog and pony show telling the people how much he cares about working people, then he returns to D.C. to support Wall Street? How many more insults must the American workers take before we admit we were wrong to support Obama?

When will we have the choice of WHO we get to vote for?”
