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

    About right, nicely done.
    I like that you have it going through the oversight, One more thing, there is an ocean of data and what is collected is a filtered glass of water. If that.

    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).

    Well, it now appears there is a direct connection between Big Gov and Big Data. So, what’s the point of this cartoon?

    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.

    Here is the concern Matt, I EXPECT business to ‘profile’ customers. Do not want/expect the government to look into it’s citizenry ! (Don’t lecture me about it’s for my own good, it’s a very slippery slope !)

    What is amazing is how surprised everyone seems to be. One can go to Radio Shack and purchase a scanner and spend your life listening to conversations.

    If your message is sent over the air.. there is a machine to intercept it and decode it.. that is the way it works. Your emails.. phone conversations..all the correspondence that is involved with drones.. spy satellites.. and military correspondence.. With a few dollars.. anyone… can get a machine that will do that. If.. it was made by “man” it can also be intercepted by another “man”.

    Exxon knows more about you than the government ever will. Bank of America knows more about you than the government ever will. Walmart knows more about you than the government ever will. Ford Motors knows more about you than the government ever will.

    The members of Big Data Inc. cannot mandate purchase and use of their products.
    .
    The Obama Administration can and does mandate purchase and use of their product.
    .
    There is a difference. Can you see it?"

    Good point, the IRS already has millions of Medical records. they are practising for when Obamacare kicks in.
