Amid all the laughter and the giggling on this show, one question was never asked.

In this land where 'FREEDOM" is supposed to be the outstanding contibution to the world, how is this any different than the STASI in the former East Germany?

Why the hell is this woman giggling like a moron while discussing this stuff? It is this inability to take anything seriously, and view everything like Jerry Seinfeld, that characterizes the idiocy of the present generation. Jesus, save us from modern people.

How funny is it that "the total information awareness program" was created under George W. Bush, who was chronically unaware of important information!
