Why shouldn't I work at the NSA? That's a tough one, but I'll give it a shot.

THE NSA COMES RECRUITING

I had intended to go simply to hear how the NSA is recruiting at a moment when it’s facing severe challenges, what with the Edward Snowden and all. Dismayingly, however, a local high school teacher had thought it was good to bring 5 of his students to the session. They were smartly dressed, some of them even wearing ties as if there might be a job interview, young faces in a classroom of graduate students. They sat across from me at the roundtable. It was really their presence that goaded me–and I think a couple of other students–into an interaction with the recruiters.

I got an email from Jason Kenny....I sent one back. It's a bit of a long read.....

So I received an email from MP Jason Kenny yesterday about Bill C-425 to amend the Citizenship Act aka Honouring the Canadian Armed Forces . The Bill has two parts: one that allows permanent residents serving in the CAF to get citizenship in two years rather than three, and the second that allows the Canadian government to strip a Canadian citizen (who is a dual citizen of another country or a former permanent resident) of his or her citizenship if he or she “engages in an act of war against the CAF” – a very ambiguous term.

McNair asked his instructor if he could be assigned to perform the work of other artists but Nally denied him the opportunity and told him if he didn’t turn in all of his completed work by Friday, May 17th he’d receive a failing grade. McNair refused.
