"The president clearly feels strongly about making sure we are not just
collecting information because we can, but because we should," Carney said.

bits like gay porno advertisements in the paper shredder.  All this they
did, wrecked the system and influenced government for perhaps a decade, all
in order to gobble up private data on the proletariat.


Apologies for hammering on this, but it has been a lot on my mind recently.

Help me Obi wan Extropi, you're my only hope.
