Out of control
Two golden words that are used regularly to shred the Constitution and loot trillions of dollars every year from the people of the United States: "National Security"
They've been told (by their lawyers) - and they apparently believe - that to not give the NSA everything it wants puts them personally at risk of going to jail.
To put this in context, the CEOs of Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Bank of America and other banks literally engaged in a criminal enterprise to defraud millions of people of hundreds of billions of dollars through mortgage fraud - and did it in broad daylight - but not one of them has so much as gotten a legal scratch.
But when it comes to defending their customers' right to privacy which is a Constitutional law - supposedly the highest law of the land - CEOs cower in fear.
Who really rules the US?
It's certainly not "The People."
And apparently it's not "Corporate America" either.
It sure looks like the banks and the defense industry with whom they are interlocked call all the shots when push comes to shove.
This is the very definition of fascism.
