    More truth than poetry in that, Google knows more about us than the government ever will.

    I think the point of the controversy is that they AREN’T going through the courts or oversight — or at least that FISA rubberstamps every single request.

    An NPR guest yesterday compared trying o get individual data from this to getting a drink of water from a fire hoise.

    Actually, the “Big Gov’t” pipe comes from the private fence, not directly from the citizen. Big Govt is getting the vast majority of its data from Big Data who are collecting it anyway for business purposes, not at the behest of the NSA. The government is the beneficiary of their self-serving snooping, not the instigator. Until these latest revelations, it even gave the NSA “plausible deniability” as they could say, “We’re not collecting data on anyone.” Not that it lets the government off the hook for what they do with it or how they correlate it with government data Big Data doesn’t have access to (yet).

    Does anyone really expect what they post on the Internet to be private???? Meta data on phone calls has been collected for many years. The only thing new is now we can collect it all.

    Privacy circa when? History tells me it is human nature (perversity) to spy.

    You really do not understand the enormity of private enterprise in the military and espionage.
    -
    Since everything is recorded if said person’s name (or something close) is red flagged they can back track through all that they have collected. Unfortunately we also have contractors doing it too. And how much scrutiny do they have?

    Obama care is Republican/Democrat corporate care but with tax money going to the corporations to pay them off for covering those who can’t pay for treatment.
