    metadata spying, we’re told).

    We are not told. That's the point. The TPPA is scary enough with what is sneaking out. Therefore I'm pleased people like Snowden in the job that have to live in solitude in Russia, gave up his life to help the world because what he saw felt dirty. I've got a little time for him. Nuff respec'

    And while I'm at it. People are innocent until proven guilty. If someone out of all the places on Earth can't go and interview Assange, that is their shit. Allegations are not being pursued and for why? No excuses are acceptable. But I will give that man the benefit of doubt especially because shitloads of other authorities aren't bothered to travel to talk to him. He doesn't need to go anywhere. They need to go to him. Plus I give benefit of the doubt to all accused without fair hearing. Hell, I even give time to listen to incarcerated because not all of those should be there either. I'm glad for pro bonos like Amsterdam. Human Rights people with empathy, with compassion for those without money. Every time National make excuses ,they claim money is a motive. For me, it's never about money.

    Oh ffs if you have a tune that works for what now seems like everyone , they are perfectly entitled to protect it and if you gotta deal with the whole world, there will be several times it occurs. Lil' old NZ Govt has stolen it and has said coincidence meant they changed it, and now Joyce says they removed it and now it's all about some money. Piss off.The National supporters are out in force tonight. Worried are we?

    I love Eminem's music How dare National try and take away my pleasures when they have no understanding of the music or the circumstances of the lyrics. And the COPYRIGHT that they are playing God with. Sorry precious ears but Fuk Teamkey hypocrites.
    Helps as an example to email these situations noticed. Maybe just maybe the heads up works.

    I was wondering myself, I'd vouch for Spart tho', probably a lurker as he has known of PAS for ages innit. Doubt he'd share his Pseudonym. Plus good to read he's loud and clear as usual. :)

    What I heard was a coherent explanation of how democracy in New Zealand has been systemically undermined by a world-wide intelligence network answerable to no-one but the intelligence and political elites and which abets global corporations in their quest for dominance.I salute all of them: Greenwald, Snowden, Assange, Amsterdam and especially Kim Dotcom for bringing all this to national – and international – prominence. If not them, who else would have? We owe Kim Dotcom – in a good way – for staging the reveal. Yeah he’s excitable, and complex,

    Yes. +1. Dotcom has shown us what he is up against as a solitary resident in NZ and chose to help us but not so much himself. He is now touted as "can do better". Nice. I know I couldn't. And although his laughing annoyed some, he must have felt really good to be amongst a group of highly respected people that understood his plight. That would be a first in a really long time. The systematic undermining of anything he is doing must take a toll. I also thought with Snowden showing his humble side with the audience applause and Assange had banging and drills in the background (that would make me scared in his situation, it might not have been a renovation) showed it to be an honest event rather than the stage managed one people seem to have wanted. I think what we got was bloody well good enough
    That's all I want to say except that I'm off to email KDC to show my appreciation for a job well done.

    Isn’t that the premise for Gremlins ?(or was it Ferris Bueller?):- )

    Hollywood has them all! Think of any crooked Government anywhere in the world and Hollywood has a movie. Why , TV has The Black list, House of Cards, Person of Interest.Scandal, all the NCIS'es, about it's own lot. Goes to show how creative thems lot are.

    There is ample evidence that people can be ridiculously stupid, even people such as senior executives.

    Prime Ministers even.
    I also think that if one feels in control, one doesn't have to worry about what language ,what information is used and who to. I believe Nicky Hager has shown many examples of when emails seem extraordinary and unbelievable even but are true and I believe those in power will say they are fake or forgeries even, Collins , Slug and our PM all come to mind. It's dirty Politics and the U.S of A are the experts
