  2. Nate Cardozo "spent all of five months practicing corporate law before coming to his senses." I'm glad he did. He's doing valuable–and necessary–work at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

  3. Every American subject – we are not citizens anymore since our constitutional rights have been unconstitutionally rescinded – should always assume that they are under constant surveillance by the government. If you think that sounds paranoid just remember this undeniable truth: "even paranoiacs have real enemies."
