About Sam's Branch

I joined the Peace Corps in 1961 as West Virginia’s first volunteer. Go to Amazon.com to order my book Imagonna: Peace Corps Memories. I am the eighth generation of my family born in the Big Coal River Valley of West Virginia. My father and grandfather were underground coal miners. I have a chemical engineering degree from West Virginia University (WVU). After training to make sidewinder missiles, I joined the Peace Corps and taught chemistry and coached the track team at a secondary school in Nigeria. Since that time, I was WVU’s first full time foreign student advisor and worked in urban outreach, organic farming, construction labor, and high school teaching. I recently retired from the board of directors of the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy (wvhighlands.org), and recently retired from the board of directors of the West Virginia Kanawha State Forest Foundation (ksff.org). I am still on the board of the Labor History Association and the West Virginia Environmental Education Association and recently joined the board of the West Virginia Civil Liberties Union. I am active in the campaign to stop the destructive practice of mountain top removal strip mining in the Appalachian Mountains.

  1. You asked, so I’ll answer. I think he is 100% correct. It amazes me that anyone things their online activities are of the slightest interest to national security. “Height of narcissism” pretty much it.

  2. Whoops, “think” not “things.” LOL

  3. K.K. Matthews says:

    It is my understanding that the fourth amendment was inspired by the Writs of Assistance. The Writs of Assistance was issue by the British courts in 1760’s. The 4th amendment was inspired by the this British overreach. The NSA domestic spying programs are merely a modern day Writs of Assistance. The blanket search warrants are forbidden by the 4th amendment, the NSA programs are unconstitutional. The 4th amendment is supposed to provide restraint to government overreach.
