michael kors outlet stores michael kors outlet stores A few observations about Edward Snowden



My pentup frustration at my Windows 8s relentless failure to configure updates ever since I installed it a few months ago may finally have a solution. Since the National Security Agency NSA has my whole electronic life mapped out the least they could do is to tell me how to fix this fucking problem. After all, it is in their interests that my system is fully updated.Microsoft, which is among the tech companies reportedly cooperating with the NSAs massive surveillance program, has not been willing to help me resolve this peculiar failure. I might as well call someone like Edward Snowden at one of the NSAs many private contractors to help me get over this failure to configure updates. Can you believe that ever since I installed Windows 8 I have not updated my system? Do you know what that feels like? It feels like wearing the same underwear for daysno,monthson end.Speaking of underwear, it seems that might be the only aspect of our lives that may be private right now. But who knows that too may have been compromised already.Watching Snowdens interview in The Guardian I was first struck by his crisp articulation of the situation he and the world is in right now. He used a compelling phrase called turnkey tyranny, as in the world is hurtling towards turnkey tyranny if it does not check the utterly invasive surveillance program. There is a ring to his answers of odorless, formless, colorless sinister doom on the horizon creeping up towards all of us. It is all so cinematic.We have been told that Snowden is a school dropout which has prompted this paralyzing realization in my mind. School and college dropouts have made such a habit of shaking up the world. It is no wonder that I went to school, completed it, then went to college and completed it. There is zero prospect of my shaking up the world. Dropping out of school and college seems to be the requirement for those wanting to shake up the world. It is ironic that Microsoft, created by one college dropout named Bill Gates, is one of the companies reportedly choosing not to resist NSA overtures.Now that I know that my calls to Microsoft for tech support about Windows 8s failure to configure updates may theoretically get swept up in this surveillance program, I might try asking the next tech guy Ramesh to escalate my calls to someone at the NSA. I find it quite hilarious that my calls to the NSA might also get logged into the NSA surveillance program.As you can probably sense I am trying to dance around the serious issue of surveillance by injecting some humor into it. Unless he chooses to somehow vanish, there are those who believe that eventually he will be subjected to the full intensity of the law.Going by the limited knowledge of his body language culled from The Guardian interview Snowden appears rather calm, except that there are moments when his mouth is parched. That happens during a heightened emotional state that is being somehow suppressed.His choice of Hong Kong is so obviously curious that one neednt even ask the question. Now that he has walked into a Chinese territory, albeit freer than mainland China, I do not see how the Chinese government would just leave him alone. Of course, China can make a brilliant tactical move by actually handing over Snowden to America to prove the sincerity of its commitment to forge a new relationship with America as articulated by President Barack Obama and President Xi Jinping last weekend. I found it remarkable that the the story was unfolding during Xis visit. It would be interesting to know whether Beijing was aware of Snowdens presence in Hong Kong and, more particularly, whether President Xi or anyone on his staff knew. Snowdens presence in Hong Kong, presuming that he is still there, is a delicate matter for the Chinese.On a tangential point, since the NSA surveillance program is so extensive I wonder whether the communication of key Mumbai terror plotter David Coleman Headley was monitored under it and, if so, what specific patterns and mapping resulted from that. I know from having followed the case that Headley was very actively communicating throughout the runup to the November, 2008, terrorist attacks. He was already being watched because of his past drugrelated involvement and vi michael kors outlet stores sits to Pakistan. In many ways someone like Headley constitutes a perfect target to monitor. Hence my curiosity. I had been on the lookout for an opportunity to vent my frustration at the Windows 8 configuration failure.
