I really don't understand what the issue is. It is not like the NSA is going to be sharing your personal phone conversation with your mother-in-law about what your going to eat for christmas dinner really matters to the NSA. I really don't understand the alarmism over this information collection and sharing. The NSA / US Government is simply not interested in information about the every day law abiding citizen. I am not sure why people think that the government would be interested in there otherwise uninteresting lives. Maybe because they want to feel important?? I really don't know. I still have not heard one good reason to fear information gathering by the government.
