Homeland Security Bureaucrats Piss Away Billions To Produce Useless, Bureaucratic Busywork By Spying On Innocent Americans While Breaking Countless Federal Privacy and Civil Liberty Laws

The dumbed-down corporate state at its finest.  This reminds me of the movie Contact, which by the way is an awesome movie, where S.R. Hadden remarks, “The first rule in government spending - why build one when you can have two at twice the price?”.  The primary intent of any bureaucracy is in it maintaining its relevance regardless by any means available to it.

No money for health care.  No money for Social Security.  No money to help raise people out of poverty and provide them with economic opportunity.  No money for bridges, roads and infrastructure.  We’re just plain out of money and we can’t afford any democratic social programs.  That’s one hell of a con job.  There are untold billions and trillions for banksters, politicians and the fascist corporate-welfare state to concoct senseless and contrived threats of nonviolent Americans.  To spend endlessly on creating new statist bureaucracies that overbuy endless supplies of software, consulting services and equipment from for-profit corporations – supply side economics for the military-industrial complex.   Reagan gave the police state the foundation it needed to completely overtake our nation by engaging in the arms race with the Soviets.  He created a dystopian monster of of state power and control.

By the way, if you want to understand the countless laws that are being broken by spying on innocent Americans, you are in luck.  A 30 year veteran of the National Security Agency is going to tell you in this just-released video.  Of course, he also tells us the Nazis, East Germans and the Soviets would have loved to have the system of illegal spying that our police state now uses against our citizens.

Nothing gives meaning to the lives of bureaucrats than a sense of purpose.  Even if that purpose has no basis in law, morality, justice or reason ---  

"Others--as most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders--serve the state chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they are as likely to serve the devil, without intending it, as God. A very few--as heroes, patriots, martyrs, reformers in the great sense, and men--serve the state with their consciences also, and so necessarily resist it for the most part; and they are commonly treated as enemies by it. ........  Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau

Thoreau’s words are timeless.  He understood the endless rationalizations we are all capable of.  Especially those granted great power.  Even more so, those who are driven, always for unstable reasons, to accumulate massive power.  Always.  Without exception.  No one has any rightful or moral dominion over another human being.   No one.   The only power on this planet greater than you or me as sovereign, free people is reasoned, honest, moral, transparent and just law. 

With great power comes even greater responsibility or noblesse oblige.   Those with great power in our leaderless society have lost their moral clarity through endless rationalizations of the ego or manifested self.
