    In the WSJ today, front page and page 8, there is an article about the NSA, and how it can cover or intercept 75% of the internet. The article goes on and tells how they do it with color diagrams and so forth. It also states that this is all done legally and within the law, but that sometimes, certain people's transmissions can leak through, when they bundle some transmissions together, and it gets through a filter system. Anything that is filtered, is supposed to dumped in the trash, by law. They work closely with ATT and other mobile carriers, but the carriers can control how much the NSA sees. The NSA states that it is only looking for terrorists and threats to our country, blah, blah, etc. It is amazing to me that the National Snooping Association is acting on our behalf and with in the bounds of the law, much as the IRS, DOJ, and ATF does.

    If I wanted to do anything bad these days, (unlikely ) I would get my partner(s) and lock us in a closet before anything was discussed, LOL.

    The NSA is comprised of people, good and bad, with good and bad intentions. There is no golden filter to scrape the devious away from the righteous. Look to IRS not only breaking law regarding selective harassment but also feeding info to DOJ and outside entities such as Dem National Committee.

    Obama just suggested a watchdog - the same one (James Clapper) that lied openly and often to Ron Wyden and Rand Paul under oath until he was blown away with Snowden's disclosures. Any of you think that he is a Watchdog protecting YOUR interests according to the Constitution?

    There are strong rumors that Petraeus was blackmailed by NSA/DOJ, as were others on the 'wrong side' of Administration POV.

    Nobody's email is safe unless the ISP refuse to turn them over. There is no evidence that all the Telco and ISP's based in the States are NOT complying 100%

    eDiscovery Hardware and Software used by legal firm keyword searches to discover 'smoking gun' emails, data, metadata are extremely powerful and child's play in contrast to NSA computers and search engines.

    It is alittle scary what they can do. Some of them are probably looking at porn for kicks.

    I am opposed to collecting my cell phone conversations, emails and most of all my medical data. This is dangerous and has no constitutionality. Think about it, Stalin, Mao & Hitler would have loved to have this capability. I'm with Rand Paul on this issue. BT100dc

    The article also said that the NSA is self-policing. Boy, that is reassuring.

    I also have to wonder if there is not an element of intentional DIS-information in this type story.

    You can make people think that they are being monitored so they then change to some, supposedly, "safe from intercept" carrier who is in actual fact a direct pipeline to the NSA. If you suddenly see some source of monitored signal shut down after an announcement like this, that could provide the "reasonable suspicion", at least in their mind, for NSA to pay closer attention to your new communications channels.

    548 said "fine with me." It is with that sort of cavalier attitude regarding the constitution that Obama and his cohorts continue to strip our freedoms.

    Have any of you lefties heard of the slippery slope. I'm sure you have nothing to hide. That's fine. Wait till your medical records are used to deny you or your children of something. Wait till a conversation you are having on the net is misconstrued by some mega computer and you have to maybe defend yourself in court.


    Our society has been feminized. Adult men, like 548 for instance, are willing to give up their freedoms and submit to the government. It makes them secure knowing they don't have to worry about taking care of their own security because the big strong government will take care of them. With that kind of thought process I don't know how these leftist wimps can live with themselves. Maybe it's easy living without self respect.

    Darr, that was a very moving plea for the right to stand up and be heard.

    The problem is that this all started with your boy President Bush (#43) with the passage of his Patriot Act.

    If you have concerns about your privacy, I suggest you take the time to understand who is responsible for changing the rules.

    I forgot it's Bush's fault. I didn't like it then and I don't like it now. Especially when endorsed by the most "transparent" administration the country has ever known.

    Darr they are what they call useful idiots, they think that if they co-operate with the down fall of the country they will be rewarded for their actions

    But they will be slaughtered with everyone else the new regime kills, as they will only be a burden as their purposed has been fulfilled
