Angry Birds no. 2

By mike flugennockFriday - January 31st, 2014Categories: Obamarama, War on Terror, liberty, media

For the record, I own a smartphone; I have a grand total of one third-party app — Twitter — don’t let Facebook anywhere near my phone, and I sure as hell don’t waste time playing Angry Birds. So, I wasn’t exactly surprised to discover that the NSA was slurping smartphone users’ private information by taking advantage of the vulnerabilities of “leaky” apps, and that Angry Birds was apparently the worst offender of the lot.

It’s time once again for the latest headlines of the day on MSNBC… and here with the headlines is Barbie Anchorbabe…

It’s not as if there hasn’t been a metric shit-ton of important news happening in the past week or so.

Of course, you wouldn’t know that from watching the Democratic Party noise machine in action at MSNBC, which has spent almost all of its available air time this week on the trumped-up “Bridgegate” scandal in New Jersey involving Governor Chris Christie, who’s also considered a major hopeful for the 2016 GOP Presidential nomination. Coincidence? Naahhhh.

A far healthier turnout than I’d expected was on hand on Capitol Hill today to mark the 12th anniversary of the Patriot Act with a protest against NSA abuse of citizens’ privacy under the Obama Administration.

A coalition of groups ranging from Code Pink and ThinkProgress to the Libertarian Party and FreedomWorks came together for an event that was “not about Left or Right, but about Right and Wrong”. Now, that’s bipartisanship.
