Does ANYONE Think that This Isn’t a Problem?!?

The NSA gathers information, 5 billion cellphone records per day (at least hundreds of millions of devices), around the world, which allows it to track the movements of individuals (anyone with a cellphone!) and “map their relationships”. The Washington Post calls it a “mass surveillance tool”; I call it another gross violation of privacy.

I am not keen on our government thinking it appropriate to track the movements of any person on the planet with a cellphone. Do you think this is a good use of American tax dollars? We the people are funding this and a host of other programs that are getting us in serious hot water with the international community. It’s eroding trust that prior generations sacrificed to build. Over time, regular Americans will be associated with what our government is doing, and not in a good way.

  1. Andwhat exactly is the authoritative source of this claim that the NSA is tracking anyone with a cellphone? Certainly not the Washington Post! The first thing is to be absolutely clear on the facts. Often the media will bias the information to achieve some political agenda. Then once one had the facts, the best option to make a change is to write your senators and congressman and organize a group to bring more awareness to the concern. Complaining about an issue in a blog doesn’t do much to actually change anything, if indeed anything needs to be changed. Personally, I don’t think I’m that important for the Government or anyone else to be tracking me. I’ve simply got bigger concerns. But that’s me. But certainly others may feel they are very important and don’t want to be tracked down.

    • The Washington Post reports that the NSA gathers 5 billion records a day, “according to top-secret documents and interviews with U.S. intelligence officials, enabling the agency to track the movements of individuals — and map their relationships — in ways that would have been previously unimaginable. The records feed a vast database that stores information about the locations of at least hundreds of millions of devices, according to the officials and the documents, which were provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.”

      Your attitude is lackadaisical. Enjoy the surveillance state.
