    They’ll just sell your data to advertisers.

    The carriers hold the data, anyway, so that they can do traffic analysis. All the FBI has to do is have some field supervisor issue a national security letter to obtain the desired information. No warrant required.

    There is a difference when a private corporation does it, and you can leave their services.

    When the agencies of the federal government do it, it is a violation of individual rights. It was wrong 20 years or more ago when the Stasi and KGB did it against their citizens. It was wrong 80 years ago when the Gestapo did it against the German citizenry. We just roll over and say go ahead and do it.

    That is the difference.

    Somebody should think about the problem of how you find and track terrorists? It is easy to be against something, much more difficult to find a solution to a real problem.

    “Somebody should think about the problem of how you find and track terrorists?”

    Therein may lie the problem, Ted. I don’t think anyone in D.C. has considered ways to find and track terrorists AND maintain Constitutional rights. That would take a lot of study (aka work).

    A small headed tea-bagging conservative is nicely depicted in this poli-toon.

    Hmm, Facebook, Amazon, J.C. Penney, L.L. Bean, or any on-line marketer probably has more actual DETAILS about you than the NSA surveillance gave them. Yep, Target represented how “secure” the PRiVATE SECTOR IS, and actual reports on the ACA program, even though it was flawed, was better than most any corporate site you might visit.

    With personal knowledge of their workings, I trust government security firewalls and safeguards of PII (Personally Identifiable Information) far more than the unknown level of private corporations, especially since they share (and sell) that information to other companies and divisions.
