Trying to put up a reasonable debate here, so no mindless ragin please, here it goes:

I honestly couldn't care less if they'd monitor all of my activity, i don't know what all the fuss is about. I have nothing to hide, i'm not plotting a terrorist atack, i'm not involved in drugs deals, i don't have buisness secrets, and even if i did, they've got no interested in those.

You got nothing to hide so there's no problem, you do have a problem with government controll, then you probably should be further investigated or you're quite possibly a narrowminded internet guy who complains about people monitoring your activity whilst you do nothing more that sit on your ass behind your computer all day.

You may have nothing to hide, but it doesn't mean the government has the right to monitor everything you do.
Let's say(god forbid) you've discovered that a new government tax scheme has a back door allowing them to use all of the populations savings for their own use. And you want to expose this, so you do.
Well the government could have a "security breach" that conveniently hands your browsing history over to the press. All the porn you ever watched, maybe you have some saucy messages from a lady-friend or pictures from a party you got really smashed at.
Now, who's going to side with a porn addicted, womanizing drunk? No one, and the government would get away with it.
Just because the government set this up with the right intentions, it does not mean they would use it for those intentions.

they cant actually hear your conversations. what it is is how far you are from the nearest tower, the length of the call, who made the call to who, and who hung up. no content

I have no opinion one way or the other.

I'm just letting this happen.

People are aware this isn't how that works right?

There aren't people listening in on each of your calls, and they don't have the option to do that even if they wanted to. Not anymore than they have for the past 10 years.

Verizon gave them their CALL LOGS, ie who you called, for how long, and when you called them. That's it. It's what you would get if you went to your phone and looked at your call history.

If they want to actually listen to what you're saying, they need to install a bug on the phone itself, like they've been able to since the Patriot Act.

And before you whine about that I have one question. Can you name even one instance of the government using their ability to tap your phone which has negatively affected you in any way? They've had the ability to do this longer than you've had a cell phone, so surely you've seen their privacy violation in action now, I mean it would be ridiculous to think they were just using these pieces of legislation to catch criminals and terrorists...

No, but it's difficult to represent the amount context a picture can add in terms of a word count.

On top of that, this content had the added bonus of context from the literally thousands of related posts in the past week, whereas I had to explain myself fully and provide my own context.

You may also want to note that I haven't been particularly serious since my first comment here, which i've alluded to in the subscript of comment #25.

If you want my actual opinion, you're just being a whiny bitch because someone put a bit of thought and effort into derailing your Orwellian fantasy.

also, according to the time lapse between posts it took you 6 minutes to make that comment which is 5.5 longer than your previous average, which only comes out to 40 words per minute, which is something most 8th graders can do

When you think about it, this is probably the reason he switched to supporting the NSA's policies
