    "Existential threat to democracy"? Snowden shows what too many isolated years with a keyboard for companionship can do to your mind. He joins all those others who fantasize about the military/government stealing our right to TV and fast food. What we should care about are the real victims of crime, theft and homicide that could be saved through intelligent analysis of communications looking for hints of an intent to harm any of us. Facts: How much time are a few thousand NSA/CIA agents viewing 3 billion calls. 294 billion emails. 6.4 billion internet searches EACH DAY going to spend on us chatting/emailing with grandmama or searching online for her apple pie recipe? For those who can't divide anymore, here's the number – each agent would have to monitor 100 million such communications – every day. That is going to be one big backlog – real quick. Still worried!
