Zero regard for 4th Amendment, tracking movements and communications of any citizen at any time. Stop worshiping police as heroes, and you might have a chance at waking up.

Yea…. does Google come to my house with armed personnel? Does Google try to use my personal information to blackmail me for political purposes?

What makes the volume of data collected irrelevant to any national security is that Obama won’t let them, use any data collected on radical Muslims to prevent their terrorist actions.

The NSA & FBI knew qgo were the Garland, Texas terrorists. TRhry had been trackiong both of them for years. They also know that oneof them had a peiope attrewmpted trerrorist chargeon their rapsheet.

So quit cheering them on TV, and grow up. This is pig power in action.

Yet none say a word about that massive industry of personal data.

When the government becomes all-knowing and all-powerful, who will keep Americans safe from the government?

“I’m not doing anything wrong, so I have nothing to fear.” The earth is full of millions of graves occupied by people who thought the same. Try opening a history book sometime. Do you think all those victims ever expected to have their own governments and military forces turn on them?

You can’t have freedom OR security without privacy. There is a good reason why mass surveillance is the hallmark of totalitarian states such as Nazi Germany, East Germany, the USSR, North Korea, and now this country, which USED to be the United States of America when its Constitution was still more or less in force.

So much for the military “defending our freedom” and honoring its oath to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The military takes orders from the domestic enemies of the Constitution.

There’s quite a bit to be said on the subject.

Yes and this isn’t new. “National security” and fear of unknown enemies has dominated the news and presidential elections for some time now.

The U.S. government sub-contracts everything. Even Edward Snowden worked for Booz Allen Hamilton as a sub contractor. Keep Google, Apple, Yahoo, Comcast, Time-Warner, Verizon, and AT&T from collecting and keeping data indefinitely here and abroad and the U.S. government programs slow and then stop.
