The government isn't spying on us, so to speak. They might record our actions, but nobody actually looks at those recordings until we're suspected of something. Do you realize how many workers it would take to actually trawl through all the mundane **** that goes on in most people's lives? The government isn't going to waste time doing this unless the person already has their interest.

Most of the **** they collect is stuff you share publicly anyways. If you don't mind everyone else in the world knowing it why the **** do you care if the government knows it?

Well, no reason to respond to all of these comments when they all basically say "It's not okay because I want to keep my public life private to the government for no reason at all". Thanks, funnyjunk, for proving yet again that you are not only a breeding ground for directionless hatred but also incapable of forming rational counter-arguments.

It doesn't matter if they're going to use the information or not. The fact that they have all that information is terrifying. I have absolutely nothing to hide, but no one should be allowed to know how I use the Internet in my own house.

That it's an international entity doesn't exclude our right of privacy. The government's out of line.

I'm pretty sure that masturbation is the sole reason people are afraid of government surveillance. It makes no sense, but vague arguments about "not wanting the government to see what I browse" is all I've ever heard.

Our right of privacy is not void simply because we're on the Internet. If I wouldn't share it willingly with my friends, no one but myself deserves to know about it.

If someone had video of me taking every **** I've ever taken, the fact that they aren't actually watching it wouldn't make me feel much better.

Give a man an inch and he'll take a mile, the fact of the matter is that the government shouldn't have that kind of power, and yet, its been growing bigger, and bigger, but nothing has changed. The war on drugs is failing, social security is failing, the economy is failing, everything is becoming contrived.   
   
So much money being burned, trillions in debt, and now they want to record all things. The government is becoming big brother, and wasting all of our money.   
   
This country is sick, and corrupt. And the funny thing is, is that the more 						********					 that goes on the more... people will snap with our laughably delusional society.   
   
It's called privacy, it's called not having a big dick following you everywhere you go, abut not having a camera on every street, about not having every conversation recorded, about not being somebodies bitch.    
   
But that isn't all, lots of people are saying lots of thing that's conspiracy today, and most likely it will only come to light a few decades later after all that stuff has grown beyond quick remedy.

Think about it, if they find someone they disagree with, like a certain politician or writer, they can release information on everyone he cheated with, any past addictions, etc.
the NSA has the power to make anyone they want look like the bad guy.
as far as I know they're the only ones who decide who's "suspected" and worth going into

Finally someone else with the same point of view.

Same to you.

Because it's the government that's doing it...
It's insignificant that the government is spying on us, but it's the government doing something that it's not supposed to be doing that's important. Democrats and "liberalism" no longer go hand in hand; the party as basically devolved into statism.

So let me get this straight, the government (you know, the group of people whose job it is to govern) is doing something wrong by peeking at information that we share publicly? I honestly do not see an issue with this at all. They are not looking for mundane **** (police officers still need warrants to get phone and email records from the respective companies), they are looking for people who are a threat to the country as a whole.

Besides, what with the sudden rise in people who are afraid the government will attack us in open warfare (seriously? SERIOUSLY?), I can't really blame them for being worried that they might have dissidents in the population...

Nothing that I've said in an email is private knowledge. The specific words, yes, but not the subjects. I don't consider it private knowledge to know that I do indeed have a facebook account or that I use State Farm insurance on my car.

As for pictures, I don't have any that are of the private variety. Even if I did though, I'd never send them over email.

Yes because they are only monitoring e-mails it not like same argument you just said could be apply to free acces to your computer at all time thatwaythey don't need tutored your data twice what you naive ?
