These programs that violate the Bill of Rights can continue because people can’t go out and say, “This is my experience, this is what happened to me, and I don’t think it is right.” There is absolutely 🅰 need for secrecy when you are dealing with a criminal investigation. You don’t want to tip off criminals being monitored. But you can’t say, “You can never talk about this ever, for the rest of your life. The FISA court should be a public court, and documents should be sealed for a set period of time, 🇹🇴 let people audit the actions later. We have received lots of federal requests. I don’t think a lot of people realize just how much information is transmitted in the clear on the Internet.
yep ive said it in the comments before. trust no company pretty much when it comes to your privacy. I guess i shouldnt say trust but if you dont want your info out there dont be naive and think that some company isnt doing it. they all can be tapped. With that said pretty to continue thriving in our world today it just a necessary evil that we have to live with. we can protest and get upset about it all we want and it wont matter. Remember the saying if life gives you lemons... smash the lemons and check for monitoring equipment.
Basically the Government is watching and listening as much as they can. And I'm sure its for more than just terrorism. They are collecting data and storing it away for rainy day!
They say that DATA is power. Those that run things want all of the DATA that they can get.
If this was supposedly about terrorist why use such a wasteful system why collect trillions upon trillions of gigs of information. When everyone linked and convicted because of fisa warrant could probably fit onto a oldschool cd rom less than a gig. Why spend billions upon billions shuffling through meaningless data when real police work and real world leads are more direct less invasive and more affective for a tenth of the cost.
And why the secrecy around it ok you don't want to tip off criminals. But cats out of the bag and they still wont talk about how invasive it is we can know about how many request were made and to which company's. But we cant find out how bad our civil rights have been violated.
To me this whole thing stinks there are more effective ways at stop terrorist that cost less. Without arming a political time bomb seriously why would any politician go with this if there wasn't something much more to gain. Add the IRS targeting leaked donor list ect it would not surprise me to know this was being used in a similar fashion to target political enemy's.
All this monitoring is really scary. Hopefully they realize how wrong it is and stop.
