News Peruse in June

The term BIG BROTHER did not originate at the CBS reality show. Big Brother is the government. The reality show is a privacy infringing spin-off.

He doesn’t play sports, but his comedy balls;
Kevin Hart towers over NBA star whose 6’11” tall.

Arizona is known as “the healing place” – folks are always looking to the heavens.
It’s either Jesus Christ himself, or the Phoenix UFO’s from 1997.

I’m as shocked as you are – this was new news to me.
Stephenville, TX isn’t alone – peep the Phx documentary.

I guess I’m only bringing it up
because I’m out here in this Phoenix cut. 🙂

So how’s your mid-week so far? What good is new?
Did you happen to catch todays episode of THE VIEW?


The show was good and their HOT TOPICS were on point.
Co-hosting with ladies was Ana Quincoces from a reality show joint.

John Stamos was on the show. He’s quite the sexy flirt,
but somehow every time I see him, I crave greek yogurt.

The NSA has been in the news, because security is in question.
If the government wants to hear you – he has the Patriot Act connection.

After Ed Snowden told Americans that thier phone calls were being spied on
Most phone compainies denied any such, except la honest Verizon.

After 9/11 in 2001, congress voted to give phone-tapping power to the White House.
But when Obama took the reigns in 2008,  the Patriot Act became a louse.

Personally, I don’t appreciate anyone dropping in on my phone calls,
but then no one asked me to weigh-in my vote on the Patriot Act,  at all.

I suppose congress voted it into law, because the terror threat is real.
And with every terrorist act thwarted – it’s an action I can feel.

I am not sacrificing liberty for safety – but I do want to be safe.
I’m Qui
And this is a dialogue needing to be had all over the USA.

What are your thoughts?
How much does security cost?

  1. September 11, 2001 was a game-changer. Liberty and Freedom are not FREE!!! People are willing to kill themselves just to kill us…we have to do what we have to do. If you think for one minute that the government has not been tapping phones since they were invented, then I got some beachfront property to sell you in Arizona!!! If you are not doing anything wrong national security-wise, you don’t have anything to worry about.

  2. Perhaps it could be because of my age [15.5-years wise] … but I honestly really don’t care wether or not the government wants to tap into my phone conversations. It’s pretty rare that I talk on the phone anyway, (I text, but nothing that’s illegal or that I would be ashamed of), and when I do talk on the phone – I’m most likely talking to my mom, dad, or another family member.

    In my point of view, you should only be worried about this if you’re guilty or conspiring to be guilty. Furthermore, if someone was planning to overthrow the government or bring harm to others in anyway via “a phone conversation” — I would WANT the terrorist to be caught. Perhaps I will feel differently when I’m older, but given the world I’m growing up in with social media and all — I don’t think so.

    • From the mouths of babes who are raised within the era of social media: I am glad you are not bothered by it, because the Patriot Act could very well be a mainstay in our future homeland security efforts.

  3. it is an interesting debate. I trust President Obama but what I worry what a less honorable president in the future might do with such information.

    Say in the future, after Obama, there is a president who has done something he/she should not have, and a journalist finds out and is prepared to go public with it, is it possible that the President might know before the public and be able to prevent that information getting to the public.

    As the old saying goes if they will do it for a good reason then they will do it for a bad one.

    • I know JD – I agree with you. I do. I see the perils of the Patriot Act too. Ooo! Whatever should we do? A quandary…
