    I am so disappointed in the majority of the comments here. This is the French Revolution rearing its ugly head again. Guys/Gals! He’s talking about helping human beings who are caught in the cross fire of this issue for crying out loud!

    Glen is not a traitor, he is not giving in on this issue, he wants to help people. We don’t live in Rwanda, we don’t overlook human suffering, no matter why, what, who or how. It doesn’t matter. We don’t allow people to suffer.

    This is nuts, now I know why the conservative movement is frowned upon, I am ashamed of some of you people. Stop this kind of negative crazy talk and help Glen help these folks.

    We’ll sort this out at some point, but we don’t need to be a part of the growing Cold Civil War we are starting to enter into. This isn’t going to end good if we don’t become more meek and caring.

    I have one of the new Z10 phones, it is a great device. The OS they use is very secure. BlackBerry is one of those phones that the NSA has a hard time with.

    i am really sad to see them have such a hard time, I hope they pull out of it and make a come back. We need this phone. The security that surrounds in this world of hackers and the NSA should make this a valued company in the eyes of others. They are one of the few companies that did not let the NSA have free reign to their networks….

    For me the destroying of the institutions that we currently have through force and violence is not an option. The resulting anarchy and fragmentation of society would greatly reduce the possibility of rebuilding it. Don’t forget that it almost didn’t work the first time around. What makes anyone think that a rebellion or revolution would guarantee that we could rebuild a constitutional republic as envisioned by our founders.

    No thanks, we can fix what we got, it will be hard and we will suffer during that process. But as I always tell people. If I had to take a bullet for the most hated politician in our government, I would. We aren’t protecting those knuckle heads, we’re protecting something far greater and precious.

    That is absolutely crazy talk. From a rebellion standpoint, it would be like bows and arrows against machine guns, you would loose. Both the shooting war and the public support front.

    No, this is not how this gets fixed and I’m tired of hearing about people who want to start shooting. Start learning to speak, start learning how to persuade, start learning how to learn. The way to fix this was established by our forefathers, and they bled so we wouldn’t have to.

    It needs to be fixed, but not at the end of a gun.

    I understand but disagree with SBC. Same gender attraction is a real problem. Excluding young men that are struggling with it isn’t going to help them. If they are able to be remain abstinent, why shouldn’t they be included?

    My mother was killed when I was eight, in a automobile accident. My Grandfather was a state patrol officer in California, and each month a CHIPS magazine arrived at his home, in it was chronicled that moth’s automobile accidents. It was pretty gruesome.

    I wonder what the public’s perception would be about flying if the images in that magazine were published on a daily basis.

    I’ll take flying small planes over driving any day (weather permitting).

    You just contradicted yourself. If there is a barter system, don’t you think it would be easier to trade with something that every recognizes as being of value?

    So what are going to barter? Okay, seeds and food will be needed, but what if I have enough seeds and food and you want something of mine? What do you have that I need? What if I need some copper wire and you don’t have any? What I need some children’s clothes and you don’t have any? What if I need a wrench and you don’t have one?

    So let’s use the wrench as an example. You will have to find someone with a wrench and wants what you have. Do you realize what a mess this would be and hard it would be to acquire what is needed?

    Gold is something that will always buy stuff. I can take my gold across the country or the world and it’s value will be recognized. As long as we can validate that the gold is pure and isn’t fake, you will always be able to get what you need with gold and silver.

    It is important to point out that our great technology requires a massive amount of people with knowledge. While this type of thing may appear (on the surface) to be a waste as its value cannot be measured at this point in time, the long term value of people experimenting and learning is vast. Even if it is with current technology.

    We HAVE to have people learn these things, and they need opportunities to do so in a substantive way. Those that really want to learn these things will show it by their relentless pursuit of it. This was a fantastic demonstration. We need this kind of creativity and desire in all of us.

    Hats off to you Arturo (and all those that helped), well done my friend.

    The problem is that ALL traffic would have to go through the Utah facility. There is no way that is going to happen. There would have to be a NSA “listening post” scattered though out the entire country. That is how networks work. Packets don’t go “everywhere” when they are sent, they take the shortest route possible.

    Think about it, if they do their data analysis in real-time, and they were to grab every packet, these monster supercomputers would have to be all over the place or you would have to build a network with as much capacity as the current commercial networks owned by all the different providers in order to move that data to where the super computers are.

    The scale of the operation necessary to listen to everything is beyond comprehension. You don’t realize just how much data is being slammed everywhere, and to think that they would set things up so that it would go through one pipe in the middle of the Utah desert is not realistic.

    The only problem with your assertion is that in the last 100 years, Iran hasn’t been attacked.

    I agree that we are over stretched militarily, we do need to pull back. But I think the thoughtful question that needs to be asked is, don’t we afford ourselves a level of protection by having a presence throughout the world?

    In the days when you had to send ships and an army over to a country to attack them, perhaps leaving all our firepower at home made sense. But how do we protect ourselves when folks can hurt us remotely (i.e. nuclear tipped missiles, etc).

    I’m not sure we can ignore Iran.
