Just in case anyone thought that video was a tad perplexing(*), I found this synopsis on Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Van_Hollen#Role_in_the_U.S._government_shutdown_of_2013

(For anyone else similarly surprised - Chaffetz was the Speaker Pro Tempore.)

(*) The agita involved gave me flashbacks to recent dealings with my utterly awful VP.

Dman & Dr. Who, after watching that video clip. I came to the conclusion that 54K of my peers died in vain. Secondly that P($$ $)^ standing in as the chair would have wet his pants the first time a round zinged by his pointy little head.

This is not why I was in the service!

Does any one remember the discussions about the "Patriot Act". How do we get that genie back into the flask?

I always knew that the cellular providers knew where we were for the hand shaking between the phones and towers (switches).

I was also aware that the Internet was developed with Govt. moneys to tie researchers on projects together.

By law they are supposed to get a warrant to tap your land line however if you use a cordless phone they can listen in to the radio in the phone.

So are the ardino, Lego, and stamps, chips NSA backdoored? Second question how many would it take to build a CPU that NSA could not enter?
