Under Surveillance: Right Now

Not a surprise?

Perhaps the degree to which you're being watched is surprising: this former NSA agent says "Everyone in the U.S. is under virtual surveillance."

They've apparently turned it up to 12, and it's accelerating, he says. Scary stuff.

More from the whistleblower:
"The problem is if they think they are not doing anything that’s wrong, they don’t get to define that. The central government does, the central government defines what is right and wrong and whether or not they target you. So, it’s not up to the individuals. Even if they think they aren’t doing something wrong, if their position on something is against what the administration has, then they could easily become a target."
(emphasis in original post)

Still think you're free?

I haven't felt free in quite a long time.

I hate to even log into stat count any more due to the large number of .gov sites taking a peek.

eaiftinfo, you're right.

Matt ... yep. We're all already on several lists, so might as well speak our minds.

Yeah, I wonder how many programs are out there scouring sites for words like "gun" or "second amendment"?

Rev. Paul said...

How many? All of them.

Interesting - Grandy and Andy are talking about this very subject right now on The Washington Times radio.

I've missed Fred Grandy...

The more of us are on their lists, the more worthless the lists are.
