Since the beginning of time, man has found a way to spy or eavesdrop on his enemy. In this country the name Benedict Arnold is synonymous with the word traitor and how many times have you heard someone who has been betrayed by a person they considered a very close friend as a Benedict Arnold?
The idea that every individual in this whole country is now being spied upon in order to find terrorists and our individual privacy has been violated is almost laughable, especially in view of the fact that since the invention of the computer, each individual in the country has more information bout their lives on a tiny computer chip then they realize. They know what kind of toothpaste you use, the size underwear you wear, the kind of pop or snacks you buy, who your doctor is, the type of prescriptions you take and maybe if you have prepaid funeral arrangements. So, in all actuality there is no longer much, if any, privacy for individuals in this country. By the way, if you haven't done anything wrong, why worry and I'm sure the government is not going to be concerned about you unless they find you buying an inordinate amount of material which could be used for a bomb or finding a large cache of ammunition in your basement or garage.
People must realize we have in this country a white supremacist group who feel only caucasians are of any worth or Muslims who feel that we are infidels or the illegal immigrants who are invading like locusts. Whatever happened to America, mom and apple pie?
