Reality just gets in the way

$250K=poverty, $7.25 an hour = divine judgement… from Fox News!

Bog bless you, Mr. Snowden! The US government has paid at least £100m to the UK spy agency GCHQ over the last three years to secure access to and influence over Britain’s intelligence gathering programs, according to the latest bombshell in The Guardian. Just great, even the NSA is outsourcing overseas.

Curiosity gets the cat a visit from the joint terrorism task force: “Little did we know our seemingly innocent, if curious to a fault, Googling of certain things was creating a perfect storm of terrorism profiling.
