Top-Secret Document Reveals NSA Spied On Porn Habits As Part Of Plan To Discredit 'Radicalizers'

Top-Secret Document Reveals NSA Spied On Porn Habits As Part Of Plan To Discredit 'Radicalizers'

“Eventually, secrets of all types will be so passe.

And, personally, I can't wait to get a gander at the porn viewing habits of some of our dear "Supremes," specifically Scalia, Alito and Thomas”

GodBlessAmerica on Nov 27, 2013 at 12:13:35

“Well, for Thomas .. c'mon. He's got lifetime subscriptions”

“I don't understand it's not illegal to view porn and these three would say it's for research anyway.”

“That's why I threw the "obscene wealth thing" in---to demonstrate that one thing I've learned about people.  And that is, whether on the left or the right, we are almost constitutionally incapable of transcending our prejudices.  So I wanted to appeal to both (i.e., left/right) prejudices

btw, I actually consider my empathy gene (i.e., the part of human nature which allows for "Christian"-type thinking) to be quite well developed.  I just also think that we're now doing things which have no historical antecedent and maybe, just maybe, we should QUESTION EVERYTHING without regard to those prejudices.”

“Hey, why not?

We figure that we can do anything else that FEELS good---like hoard obscene amounts of wealth, "marry" the same sex, turn anyone who's ever suffered anything into a victim or a dependent on the government, wallow in lascivious voyeurism of both the sexual and violent kind---without there being any consequences of the unexpected kind. So why not a nation of potheads.

It's called the appalling conceit of a self-indulgent generation which has never not gotten what it's wanted,

Well, we'll see just how long this circus can last.”

Paw1 on Oct 31, 2013 at 11:00:06

“No, it's called freedom. Freedom from emotionally constipated, finger wagging self appointed bastions of morality that seem to believe deprivation, pain and misery are some sort of badge of honor to aspire to. Given the comparison, Pothead Nation looks pretty darn appealing. Sorry about the presumed lack of consequences. However, wishing harm upon others for doing things that don't interfere with your life simply because YOU think they're wrong is distinctly un-Christian of you. Best get thee to a nunnery.

BTW, agree with you on the obscene wealth thing...”

“Just HAD to click on the "news" story which topped my AOL homepage as I'm determined, to turn a phrase, to figure out at which point farce becomes tragedy.

I posit it's when the vast majority of allegedly well-informed people bleat in self-righteous indignation and judgment while having no clue as to Freud/Jung's concept of "projection" or the findings of the porn viewing habits of millions and millions of people revealed the the NY Times best-seller written by two scientists titled, "A Billion Wicked Thoughts"(guess which category of porn was, "by far," the favorite and guess the preferred age of the naked model they wanted to view?).

Until we stop hypocritically wallowing in lascivious voyeurism and become a whole lot more honest about our "secret" sexual desires, not only will these events keep on truckin', they'll also keep on toppin' the "news."

In the meanwhile, go enjoy your wet dreams.”

“So point a finger at society (including YOU, bud, as part of that society) as easily as you vent your outrage at the miscreants this society produces.  Your failure to do so ignores the "nurture" part of the nature/nurture components of why the human animal does what it does.

But, no, it's oh-so-much easier to scream bloody murder at someone else.”

“Fascinating that when it comes to committing sex, teens are children and aren't allowed.

But when it comes to committing murder, suddenly they're adults so that we can blow them away.

Something tells me we'll define whatever makes us fearful in a way that makes us FEEL good, common sense and logic be d*mned.”

“With your obsession with teen RAPE (as you scream loudly and, thus, UNTHINKINGLY about it) you seem to have ignored one of my most important points.  And that was when we treat teens in a way which ignores their potential to be responsible adults then society, TOO, is responsible for when they act irresponsibly

Bu go ahead, just get all vertiginous about it and we can continue to just keep getting vertiginous because it will just keep continuing to happen”

“Seems like my AOL homepage is filled with stories about teens doing this (sex) and teens doing that (violence) and teens, teens, teens doing everything, everywhere and all the time.

First, maybe we should be asking what, exactly, fuels our obsession with teens .

Second, maybe we should also be asking ourselves whether the modern insistence on infantilizing teens (used to be that those rites of passage at puberty actually meant something other than envelopes stuffed with cash) causes rather then ameliorates teen dysfunction.”

“What's most shocking about this story is that people are shocked by this story.

I'd suggest that all those screaming "pedophile" first actually take a look at the DSM (the clinician's 'bible') definition of the term and, second, take a look at a recent NYTimes bestseller titled "A Billion Wicked Thoughts" where 2 scientists analyzed the porn viewing habits.

Until we're a whole lot more honest about our sexual proclivities these stories are going to never end nor will they ever fail to elicit lots (and lots) of interest (3000 comments and counting)”

“How many people are killed every day in this country from gun violence?

How many people die because we refuse to provide adequate health care to all?

How many kids go to bed worried about where their next meal will come from?

How many kids will live truncated lives because we seem unable to provide a decent education to all?

But let there be a dozen deaths and the media will obsess 24/7; tanks, planes and infantrymen will be called up for duty; the President will pronounce from on high; politicians of all stripes will puff and pontificate; cities and airports and train stations will be shut down; multiple millions will be spent and wasted while more and more laws will be passed and more and more Americans will buy guns to "protect" themselves.

We don't need "terrorists" to destroy this country. We seem plenty capable of doing it ourselves.”
