I think we turned that corner long ago. It's not a good feeling to think that you are monitored for just living your normal life, but everyday someone is trying to find a way to harm us for just living our normal lives.

They put safeguards in place so that IF they see a pattern of communication that looks suspicious, they still have to get subpenas to actually access the communication. I don't feel as worried about this as right now. If I thought they were abusing this policy, I would be concerned.



A word to the wise ain't necessary, it's the stupid ones who need the advice.

A friend of mine summed up my feelings about the recent revelations: "So he went to China where they would be surprised to discover the government was spying on them?" As when Bush was President, my biggest comfort is the thought that we are still able to discover these things in the newspapers and on TV. When the day comes that we no longer can, we will truly have lost our freedom. As long as we can hear those who oppose the administration's policies, there is still hope.
That said, I fear we have turned a corner toward government surveillance that will not end.
