Yep. This deserves promotion, all right.

Hello, my fellow Americans!

On the left, your National Reconnaissance Office's new logo for their latest spy satellite. Don't you feel safer already?

On the right, something intended to make you fearful.

From a different time. And a different country.

It's funny how many of us spent years and years howling about the police state and government spying, and no one gave a damn. Then one far-right, Ron Paul-loving dudebro steals some documents and defects to Russia and next thing you know it's the most important story in the world. Funny how they're happy to talk about it now, as long as all the blame can be laid at the feet of the Kenyan Usurper, and all the praise for its disclosure can be heaped on the far right.
