  1. Who cares what Snowden is, or why he did what he did?! He exposed the illegal and immoral Big Brother North Korea style intrusion into our daily lives – if anything the guy deserves a medal. As for the argument that now the Islamic terrorists changed their communication patterns: did the NSA with all their wealth of information ever bothered to do anything other than providing counseling services for Tsarnaev Brothers? – understand, all this info is being illegally collected for no purpose other than the US population political control. Don’t believe the above? – ask the Tea Party what the IRS did to them.
