    CIA spying on senate

    The lawlessness of America knows no boundaries.

    Chances something meaningful results of this? Slim to none. Why? Dirt dug up from spying.

    Of course something meaningful will result of this. Congress is a special flower. They operate by different rules. When a bunch of corrupt politicians were caught in an FBI sting accepting bribes, the response from Congress was to make that action illegal in the future.

    It won't fix it for us. Just carve out Congress as a protected class.
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    Of course most of these turds didn't give two ****s about NSA snooping until they found out the NSA was snooping on them.
    Tell me where the bomb is or I will kill your son.

    Don't worry, the level of care about the NSA was drastically reduced when the men in black suits and sun glasses reminded them they really shouldn't care and brought to their attention various skeletons in their closets.

    It's rare, but I completely agree with your statement.

    "Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon, you know, ‘cause I've worked in a lot of intelligence agencies and I tell you people do that all the time."
