The Lamest Possible Rationale for NSA Spying

I like this blogger. I’m jealous of how well he writes, and the subject matter. Neverending1

Last June, in response to a question about indiscriminate spying by the National Security Agency, I made two simple points about the importance of judicial oversight and cost-benefit analysis.

I want – at a minimum – there to be judicial oversight whenever the government spies on American citizens, but I also think some cost-benefit analysis is appropriate. Just because a court has the power to approve snooping, that doesn’t mean it’s a sensible use of law enforcement resources.

Nothing since then has changed my mind.

Indeed, I’m perhaps even more skeptical of untrammeled government power and ability to spy on citizens for the simple reason that I don’t trust politicians.

Just look at how the White House turned the supposedly professional IRS into a partisan political operation. The government had power, ostensibly for a legitimate reason, but politicians and bureaucrats then used the power is a grossly improper fashion.

    • If you can get a house, get a house. You don’t have to deal with a lot of lowlifes every day. And look to make sure you’re not surrounded by houses very close to you. Try to get one where it’s isolated. Don’t even think of living in an apartment if you don’t have to, as you know it’s hell.

    • Oh, I’ve read l984 several times. I even recommended targets read the book. In the book it tells about what 1984 would be like. It took a few years beyond l984 to prove the writer was right. He saw the signs all around him. Too bad, he didn’t live long enough to see it come true.
