    Obama’s idea of reform is likely to make the program less public and expand it for his own ends…

    Is there a necessity for NSA programs? Probably. Is anyone in the Administration or Congress working to maintain our Constitutional rights while allowing those programs to run? Probably not.

    Like Snowden pointed out, the NSA is used to mine business data to give the American 1% an advantage.

    The NSA has prevented many terrorist attacks. Of course (and I saw this documented on Castle) all those preventions are classified Top Secret, so if you ever found any details about any of them, you’d be guilty of treason and would have to be disappeared. So trust your government. They know what is best.

    “Top Secret America” by Priest should wake people up to what’s been going on with PRIVATIZATION of “Intelligence” gathering for a long time, and the Patriot Act opened the door wide.


    But CORPORATE invasion of privacy makes me a lot more nervous, and gets downright irritating when insurance companies for example use my Social Security information to target me as a potential customer, but any online marketer has more information on peoples’ private lives than the NSA.

    How about your local police requesting to use your home security system? I’m sure they would be honorable in their use of your home’s cameras.

    Trust your local police, or trust your local criminals, not too much of a decision for the average home owner I would have to say. Of course, if your local police are the criminals themselves, then you REALLY have a problem!!!

    .
    I disagree on that opinion. He’s not stupid, and has the benefit of many advisors (technical and legal). I think he’ll genuinely push for some kind of compromise, and inform what those changes are. Give him a chance before jumping to conclusions.

    Please keep in mind who exactly shoved the so called “Patriot Act” down your throats. Hint: it wasn’t the black guy…

    The Patriot Act passed with overwhelming bi-partisan support, was supposed to sunset after 10 years, and is not being interpreted as it was written according to it’s author Jim Sensenbrenner.
