I must be the only person that couldn't give 2 ***** if they monitor my every movement. so what, if they aren't using this info to imprison me why even care if some creep is watching you fap to ponies from the other side of your webcam?

Dude that's a book, not real life. There is no reason to believe any of that will actually happen. All you conspiracy theorist need to calm down. Honestly all of this surveillance has no effect on our daily lives so again why care?

I support the NSA and their actions.

If I had to guess, the main reason most people are upset with this is because they think that if they ever get in trouble with the law, some guy in a suit's gonna show up in the court and talk about the defendant's addiction to horse porn or whatever.

To put your mind at ease, they just have a program that searches for keywords that suggest illegal activity.

would you like it if someone was watching you go to the bathroom while taking notes of everything you did? Or have you ever walked by a policeman worried, even if you know you did nothing? yeah it's kinda like that

If you believe the NSA has the manpower, funding, and time to personally watch everything that goes on at every moment of everyones day, then you need to do a little more research.

i meant that that's how it feels like with that knowledge, not what their actually capable of. going back to the policeman thing, you still feel uncomfortable, even though you know you did nothing wrong.

I personally like the analogy that i think was a picture on the front page at one point:
"NSA spying is like finding out your neighbor is a sex offender; It's a little uncomfortable, but you wont do anything about it"

Personally, I don't care what the NSA is doing, and it's not a recent thing like everyone's making it out to be... It's publicly known to have been happening AT LEAST since the Reagan presidency, and I'm willing to put money that it's been going on since telephones and/or radio was invented.

Let's just skip all the anecdotal crap. The company Snowden worked for, had a contract for $56 000 000 000. They recently cut veterans benefits, food stamps and have cut research grants and things that will ensure a healthy economy for futures to come. Instead, they gave out a contract to collect data on just about everyone. What has this accomplished? Absolutely NOTHING. They have nothing to show for it, no stopped attack, no increased security, just the power to manipulate people. It's a cancer, a total waste. The spending would save more lives if it was given to companies for medical research, so don't even try and pull the ******** that it saves lives, it doesn't. It does NOTHING for the whopping cost of $56 000 000 000. What a super ******* deal.

No, people have an issue with it because they treat everyone like they're guilty.
I'm almost positive that I'll never be directly impacted by the surveillance, but what they're doing is just so against my principles. It goes so far past the bounds of government's role.

Unless they're positive or at least got good reason to suspect someone is doing something illegal, child porn, etc. I agree, just adding that bit.

Is it really that bad if the president of Uruguay knows you have a poop fetish? The information is used to capture terrorists. Anyways, it's not like everyone's pone is tapped, it's mostly throwaway cell lines and discrete online chat boards.

"The ongoing publication of leaked NSA documents has revealed previously unknown details of a global surveillance apparatus run by the United States' NSA in close cooperation with its Five Eyes partners: Australia (ASD), Great Britain (GCHQ), Canada (CSEC), and New Zealand, along with cooperation from the security agencies of "most other Western countries".

The Guardian's editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger said in November 2013 that only one percent of the documents had been published.[108] Officials warned that "the worst is yet to come", a sentiment echoed by Glenn Greenwald and by Lon Snowden."

Goes a little further than just 'Finding keywords". Like Inferny said, they're gathering whatever information they can get.

The reason it's illegal to reveal these secrets is because said people sign legally binding contracts and also swear not to reveal the secrets. Thousands of people have access to those secrets but they agreed not to divulge them.

a state needs to do things that shouldnt be legal for others... especially in a democracy i cant openly say those methods are needed.

of course it can go overboard, but generally i think that a gov needs a bit of freedom and secret to work.
