    As long as private companies get fat government contracts to store the data, we have absolutely nothing to worry about. It’s socialist if the government owns the means of production, so we need to privatise the NSA ASAP, and everything will be perfect.

    Hey, if we can trust BP to drill oil wells a mile down in the ocean, then we certainly could trust the likes of Google with all of our important personal data!!

    Unless the NSA has a few billion spare people to READ all those dang things, they’re merely taking up space. True, in cyberspace instead of a deserted warehouse at the edge of town, but taking up space.

    Pres. Obama Plutocrat and agent of them was just carrying on what his predecessors did like GWB since D and R mean little when it is really P.

    Orwell aka Blair had tvs in INSOC but not private-govt partnerships in prisons, surveillance and even the military.

    Computers will do most of the search functions for them in their vast store house in Utah.

    Now gathering government secrets, and selling them to China? That would be Israel’s function (note who our convicted spies were spying for). 33 new departments for “Homeland Security” from Bush, and all that private contracting (read “Top Secret America” by Dana Priest) or shop at Target, MIchael’s, or any online store, and you’re vulnerable, “captured”, maybe not, but definitely vulnerable. BTW: do NOT use a debit card on line!!

    I believe what you’re describing is “faszism”. Or in today’s reality “Obama’z cronze capitalizm.”.

    I can’t remember where I got the raw data about that new data center the NSA is operating but I did some calculations back then and ended up with 500.000.000 (five-hundred MILLION) one tera-byte hard-disks of storage capacity. Try to fill A SINGLE 1TB HD with relevant data. Go on, try. You’ll fail! What THE HECK are they storing about us all???

    “The Handmaid’s Tale” may also help you in seeing the marked trend.
