Closing Statement from Kareem Fahim

Majority of people are annoyed by this 'data collection'. Western Govs., defenders of 'freedom' 'democracy' and 'input_word' are mere bunch of hypocrites. Although it is shocking how some people are defending NSA and these faceless entities... (maybe they are 'trolls' or NSA paid users...).

    Jul 2 2013: A question for you and the rest of the world is do "you" mind that our government gathers information on you. We gather information on every thing everywhere through corporations and then sell it to the highest bidder which is usually the government. When corporations get caught breaking the law they just payoff the government with information on "you". It is legal tender just like cash, patents and any other information traded like fish in a fish market.
