Binney and Wiebe, heard of them?

So the government is shut down, eh?  Think again.  The killing and spying parts are still being funded, of course.  At ridiculously wasteful levels.

As an aside: The government can't even build a data center right.  This is one of the places that will help invade and violate our privacy.  From Data Center Knowledge (and a bunch of other places):
"NSA Data Center Plagued by Electrical Problems" by Rich Miller

I am still bothered by the fact that our government feels the need and justification to spy on its citizens.  This intrusion in privacy was predicted, and could have been prevented, while still protecting us, according to some whistleblowers.  Consider this article from the Government Accountability Project:

"NSA Whistleblowers William (Bill) Binney and J. Kirk Wiebe"

Doesn't matter who the president is.  Obama doesn't give a damn about your rights any more than Bush did, or any other president.  Big government is its own justification.  Big government itself is the problem, regardless of party.
