Domestic Spying

Written by Rob Rogers on .

I don't like the Patriot Act at all and I won't miss the parts that aren't renewed, but for the sake of honest debate, let's all admit that the bulk collection of metadata is not a huge violation of civil liberties. That said, putting it on a government server all in one place would seem to make it more vulnerable to hackers. Either way, we are far more at risk with the stuff we share on social media.

Climate Change

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Obama recently said that climate change was a one of the biggest threats to our national security. Naturally, republicans jumped on that and screamed, "what about ISIS?" Well, if the planet is under water I don't think anyone will be worrying about terrorist attacks.

Big Bankers

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The banks will pay billions in fines for rigging foreign markets but nobody will go to jail. They were not jailed for assorted schemes that led to the 2008 financial crisis either. They just keep living their lives and collecting bonuses.
