The new McDonalds

By 1976, McDonalds had served 20 billion hamburgers. Today? More. Many more.

But McDonalds has a volume-based rival, the government’s electronic surveillance programs. As it is, the government (that is, the Obama Administration) has pulled way ahead with a billion electronic transactions per day (emphasis added).

“Right now, we have a situation where the executive branch is getting a billion records a day, and we’re told they would not query that data except pursuant to very clear standards,” he [Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.)] said. “But we don’t have courts making sure those standards are always followed.”

As the President might have said, “This surveillance state? You didn’t build that. We built it… actually, we paid to have it built. For your own good. Trust us, we’re pre-law…”

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
