Joking matter: Obama's in your e-mail

(CNN) - If Obama is looking at a computer - with kids, with aides, or by himself - he's checking your e-mail.

That's the joke in a new Tumblr mocking the National Security Agency's Internet data-mining program that came to light last week.

It posts photos from the White House photostream of the president looking at screens, and the effect is ominous.

Laughing with kids in front of a laptop? He's checking your e-mail.

Browsing the presidential Blackberry next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel? That's your e-mail he's looking at, too.

And that shot of Obama looking into an iPhone with Justin Timberlake? They're looking at your e-mail.

    If you are currently upset or disturbed by the collection of phone records or the PRISM program, google the "Patriot Act Vote" along with the nemae of YOUR Congressman. If He/She supported the original vote, or the subsequent RE-athorizations of it, FIRE THEM in 2014. Otherwise, shut up!

    Too many Congree people don`t have the intellectual horsepower to read, digest & analyze the legislation before them. They don`t have the work ethic to roll up their sleeves and READ the bills. Excuses for not performing their duties [like the bill was over 1,000 pages] are not acceptable.

    Bush requested this power in the wake of the 9-11 attacks and most of you fell for it. Bush`s Presidency had NO DIRECTION . . . and then 9-11 came along. He seized on it [to protect himself from charges of being a visionless leader] and his Presidency. The libruls tried to warn you about this form of "Big Government" but you weren`t paying attention.
