    Google being involved with the NSA since its inception. You are getting information, and google logs and tracks even what you are thinking about... And with smartphones, people are telling google about themselves on a minute to minute basis.

    People dont really care much about privacy anymore.
    Who are these people that don't care about privacy anymore?

    The ones who literally give away every conceivable piece of personal information to Google.

    Which is basically everybody.

    The US doesn't need to even scan this information themselves, they can just get a contract with Facebook and Google and have 90% of it right there.

    There's a story about Target's marketing software successfully identifying a teenage girl was pregnant before she'd even told her father, and sent her maternity ads in the mail. He wasn't thrilled.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Read the TOS on the free e-mail services like Google,Yahoo and such. Read the TOS on your smart phone accounts. They all keep track of what you send and say. You give up your privacy anytime you use one of them. E-mails and phone calls from a companies servers or phone switches are not private. Every time you use any of the above you willing give up your privacy
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    I agree. I was just kidding around. The big providers have been in bed with the government for years. It's a quid pro quo arrangement.

I don't know about you, but when I cut my teeth on the Internet as it was becoming available to the public, and my understanding of e-mail was always that it was the equivalent of writing your correspondence on the back of a post card. If you want privacy, you encrypt. That's why the government faught PGP for so long and why key escrow was such a hot topic for so long.

    3. Pretty much every free service on the Internet scans your correspondence and usage patterns for marketing data.

    4. The search engines retain and market your usage patterns too.

    5. Not saying this is a good thing, but if you really care about online privacy you need to take steps rather than just bitching about what the government has been doing for years.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
