No Privacy

Most of you reading here are the kind of people who enjoy your freedom and your privacy. You are decent, hardworking, honest folks who just want to be left alone to do your own thing. That's why it is so disturbing to learn that the NSA is tracking and recording your every phone call, email, text and IM.

In case you haven't seen it, here is the interview with the whistleblower who exposed the extent to which the government is surveilling citizens. This is an outrage and is made even more so by the fact that politicians and media are trying to downplay it and are even calling for Edward Snowden's arrest- or worse.

Please take the time to watch this, learn what's going on, and get others talking about it.

    Same here! Have to say I'm pretty outraged myself! And they're calling him a criminal when the government is the one encroaching on our liberties and privacy. I like to look at things from all angles and points of view but ther is NO reason they can justify reading recording our phone calls, text and voicemail except the gross overuse of power

  4. I don't care, I'm not doing anything wrong and seldom use a cell phone anyway.

    1. First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
      because I was not a communist;
      Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
      because I was not a socialist;
      Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
      because I was not a trade unionist;
      Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
      because I was not a Jew;
      Then they came for me--
      and there was no one left to speak out for me.

  5. Kristin--You are right on target. I haven't done anything wrong either, but "they" can twist anything they want into something wrong, can't they?

  6. I am getting a little worried about all this too. I mean, there are cameras every where I go anymore. I am afraid to get a ladtop computer because of the "eye" at the top where you can take pictures. I think the governmet is watching through those. And I just have the simplest cell phone. I wouldn't even have one if my husband weren't a truck driver and I worry anout him out there on the road. It's getting to where a person has no privacy at all anywhere they go. And WHY? Is it that bad that our every move has to watched or our phone calls listened to? What are WE doing wrong?
