WHO'S FUCKIN' PARANOID NOW?


The Edward Snowden story has been floating around for a while. He's the former CIA operative who didn't blow a whistle but a trumpet on the US and UK government covert surveillance programs.

Not news to some just a confirmation of what we've known has being going on for some time now, Just like politicians on the fiddle, it has come as a surprise to some; that their government wants to know what its people are up to. If what Snowden says is true, the citizen of the United Kingdom are the most spied on. Good job we are living in a 'democracy'

Some may say that if you are doing nothing wrong, then what's the problem. Well....they are the problem for one and by their logic....Why have the US and UK governments not wanted their citizens to know what they've been up to, if it's nothing wrong?

Their logic also dictates with no hint of irony that Edward Snowden is wanted in the US on charges of spying..... because he told the world that the US and UK governments are spying on their citizens. That's how things work in a democracy.

He was in Hong Kong, but since the US government put diplomatic pressure or threatened as I like to call it the Hong Kong authorities to help with his extradition to the US he has left there and is flying to Russia before possibly going to 'communist Cuba'

During the cold war all the Eastern bloc countries watched and observed their citizens, it was how the communist regimes maintained control, through fear, the secret police were no secret, unlike in this hot war on terror world, where everything they do is secret. and the only fear is the fear of the unknown and the unseen.


Our democratic values are under threat by the very people that have been entrusted to maintain them. Just who are the real terrorists? because wasn't that what the war on terror was all about, protecting our freedoms from those that wanted to destroy democratic values?
