Obama's Parting Blow Against Privacy
The NSA is relaxing its privacy rules, allowing more information on the private communications of Americans to be sent to 15 different intelligence agencies.
By Conor Friedersdorf

The outgoing Obama administration has just made NSA-collected data available to 17 different federal agencies, providing myriad new possible ways for mass data collection to be abused. And just in time for President Trump.

JUST BECAUSE A DEMOCRAT DOES IT DOES NOT MAKE IT OK. THIS WAS A STUPID IDEA.

The Final Problem

I watched it for the first time last night and loved it. With what I’m going through with the loss of my brother right now, I can relate so much to the topic of being family even though you’re not blood related. My brother, is not blood related to me, he was babysitted by my mom starting at 20 months old, and he has always been there, even though he has had numerous heart surgeries including:5 weeks ago a heart transplant, he has always been the positive one. We decorated Christmas trees together, trick-or-treated together, cried together, got mad at each other, laughed together, and loved each other dearly. We discussed Harry Potter, Sherlock, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Dr.Strange ( one of our last wonderful conversations), he would tease me for my crush on Benedict and other celebrities over the years, but mostly there was always love. When I watched last night and Mycroft was sitting in the chair and said this is a private conversation amongst family and Sherlock told John to stay I completely understand where he was coming from, that was my “brother’s” situation not blood but definitely family. I don’t have much family now other then my parents who feel they’ve lost a son, so I understand the importance of family that is not related and Sherlock has this with, John, Ms. Hudson, Molly, and Lestrade. This last season with the death of Mary feels like it was written with my situation in mind and the timing of it coming out now is remarkable and is another reason this show and these characters mean so much to me. I know none of you on here know me or my “brother” I hope you read this and remember to appreciate your family related or otherwise. Also anyone who would love to share what makes this show mean so much to you please do and re-blog to share with others.

shoutout to george, fred, and especially ron weasley for realizing that harry was stuck in abusive and unhealthy household and, in spite of the massive trouble they knew they could get in, taking immediate steps to personally see him removed from that environment, something no adult in harry’s life did.

Canada:… why am I here? When you call me and show up with a flamethrower things never turn out well. 

America: I figured out a better way to make cookies! Listen, I did the math,  and if it takes 10 minutes for them to bake at 400 degrees than it should only take them 1 minute to bake at 4,000 degrees! 

Canada: What?! No! You dd the math but not the science, Al, you can’t-

America: How about 4,000,00 degrees for 1 second?!

Canada: ALFRED NO PUT THE FLAMETHROWER BACK!!

America: I’M GOING TO FLY THESE COOKIES INTO THE SUN!!!
