No Kidding, Angela!!

Angela Merkel gets it.  Too bad Rep. "Lightbulb" Rogers doesn't.

In an angry exchange with Barack Obama, Angela Merkel has compared the snooping practices of the US with those of the Stasi, the ubiquitous and all-powerful secret police of the communist dictatorship in East Germany, where she grew up.

The German chancellor also told the US president that America's National Security Agency cannot be trusted because of the volume of material it had allowed to leak to the whistleblower Edward Snowden, according to the New York Times.

"Lightbulb" Rogers (another Statist Republican) is chair of House Intel.  He's famous for killing off incandescent bulbs here in the USA, and infamous for defending the NSA's activity (cough) both domestic and international.

"Lightbulb" doesn't like Merkel's complaint.
