    Standards are great (because there are so many to choose from). So double standards must be twice as good, right?

    Or what I really mean is, screw you US Gov’t.

      Double’s are great, but the real question is if they can take it to the Triple’s?

      No matter what we agree F.T.Government, and that is why we had featured your comment at the Pewlpit.

    This is one of the defining traits of fascism – government gets secrecy; citizens do not. In a free society, it’s the other way around.

    No need to get your knickers in a twist – she’s no US citizen.

    Well, in a sense the terrorism won with the 9/11 thing. They turned the US into a police state leading their citizen to some sort of home imprisonment and to near bankruptcy due to the moronic expenditures with a failed war on terrorism (which includes two failed physical wars).

    This is just another blow in the agonizing US Constitution. The Founding Fathers would be ashamed.

  7. Why has there not been a platform for US citizens to object to this?

    Step 1: Win case permitting secret warrantless access to Twitter info
    Step 2: Wait for Twitter to erupt in protest of ruling
    Step 3: Round up Twitter info of protesters 
    Step 4: Update terrorist watch list

    No problem, you can petition the government online now. They probably just don’t know if people enjoy privacy or if they’d like to know why government does what it does. A few thousand signatures should clear up the confusion.
