Seven months ago, the world began to learn the vast scope of the National Security Agency’s reach into the lives of hundreds of millions of people in the United States and around the globe, as it collects information about their phone calls, their email messages, their friends and contacts, how they spend their days and where they spend their nights. The public learned in great detail how the agency has exceeded its mandate and abused its authority, prompting outrage at kitchen tables and at the desks of Congress, which may finally begin to limit these practices.

    The people running the NSA think they’re above things like Congress, Presidents or Constitutions. They’re a bunch of J. Edgars, full of moral certainty that their actions are justified.

    So the good Christians and politicians of Louisville believe that putting a stop to drinking and twerking will magically reverse violence. Like violence doesn’t have a thing to do with poverty and all the emotional devastation and oppression it brings to families and children. Or that so many parents escape the reality of their dead-end existance with drugs.
