Okay, so now we are told that virtually everything that travels over the US communication network gets shunted to the NSA. Now, I am a bit concerned about this, as I am sure most Americans are, and I want to get your opinions about this. How do you feel about the NSA sorting through billions and billions of emails and texts a day? Do you feel it is a blatant violation of your rights, or do you believe that they can’t be doing too much with the data, or they would have to hire every person in the nation to evaluate it?
I can hear now the cries that this is another example of the Bush Administration’s blatant disregard for personal freedoms. Hey, it *might* be true, but there have been concerns about the NSA’s listening techniques long before this Bush Administration. Does no one remember the book “Puzzle Palace?”
Anyway–let me (and the other readers) know what you think about this topic!
