You may not have given much thought to government snooping until recently, but there are plenty of ways the NSA -- or even corporations -- can keep tabs on you.

How can you trust a government that DOESN'T TRUST YOU??
Jun 26, 2013 8:21PM
not only do the snoop  but when asked by congress about it they lie  but will anyone be held accountable?  Nope

Hey justme whether you object to anything or not; to damn bad for YOU if the government wants to snoop on Americans ILLEGALLY!!!! Give government officials an inch and they'll take a LIGHT YEAR. As someone said once said, and I quote "people who give up liberty for safety end up with neither."


for examples look to the old Soviet Union [especially bad under Stalin], Nazi Germany, Chairman Mao's China, etc.


I just can't BELIEVE your naïve attitude,


The ONLY thing government can be trusted to do is INCREASE ITS OWN POWER, and screw everything else

George Orwell was late with 1984, but spot on in the end. "Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away..." D. Mustaine

This unauthorized, unwarranted intrusion into the lives of American citizens must stop! We are losing all of our rights and the people are doing absolutely nothing about it. Get a god Da8m warrant.

How do they have the tax paid manpower to track over 350 million individuals? Couldn't they have caught the two Boston bombers before they pulled their stupid prank?

This is why the 2nd Amendment will always be needed. 

Why trust your government when they won't trust you.

Don't see much difference between this government and any other totalitarian government in history.  It's too bad the courts allow this.  If the government needs this information they can get a court order to get it.  Otherwise, leave us alone.

I'm middle aged, and I have read many "big brother" type novels over the years. Feeling a little paranoid, I read hundreds of novels, of all genres. I used to close my eyes and say, well if you're not doing anything wrong, why worry. Now I realize that all this information could fit a situation and innocent people could be screwed just by habits. Just by writing this, I'm probably on a watch list.  Musings of a democrat.

of course they fail to mention that "data" can be manufactured and manipulated to be anything they want it to be, real or not
Jun 26, 2013 8:45PM
I've been saying that we have been being watched for years.  Now, people that know me will believe.....
Jun 27, 2013 12:26AM
Satan is lurking around every comer....paranoid government and a paranoid society equal eminent destruction.  we all now it is and has been happening and yet we do nothing because we are afraid of the fact that they are watching. I believe that those in power are fairly comfortable with the fact that they can do whatever they want..  I love my country and I pity it's people.  I pray for them daily, all of them on all levels.

 This is what it's come down too? Nothing you do is a secret. One can only hope these "LEECHES" in your PRIVATE LIFE, will choke it one day.

Your prescription and medical information.

The Washington Taliban may also be putting a fly sized (and shped) drone on your windowsill with a miniscule color camera watching your methods of screwing.  You are probably listed as a "belly to belly" or "dogstyle" screwer.

I think anybody checking on me would get bored with my peaceful, low-key, happy life.
Jun 26, 2013 8:31PM
The Taliban of Washington apparently tracked the NSA whistleblower (who would have been protected had he whistleblown a private company) from Hong Kong to Russia.  And, it seems they know he is there.  But, that hopefully, may be the end of the track.  They may be able to call the dogs home now.  Mr. Putin says the guy is "safe."  And he said the American government was like shearing a pig!  He said you get a lot of squealing but little wool!!!!!  I love that!!! Thanks, Sinator Kerry!!! Your squealing brought out the Russian wisdom!!!!  Kerry, if I were you, I'd skoot a little further up under my desk than Lewinski was under Clilnton's desk!!!! You peoples are fundy!!!!

again this is the electronic prison established by the feds and built by us. We can't go any where without permission i.e. drivers license , pass port or other travel documents. and when you do go they know when , where, and how long it took you. what hotel you said at and what it cost. On top of listen to your calls and monitoring you internet usage. We complain but to no avail, maybe if we start to boy cot the phone companies, internet servers, and some of the other giants involved hurt their dollars for a month or so , maybe we can get a little backing from them to fight this.
