Basically, ever since the Patriot Act was enacted after 9/11, the federal government has been monitoring and recording internet searches, phone calls, emails, essentially all forms of electronic communication, within the U.S. to look for terrorists. Many, myself included, see this as a gross violation of the Fourth Amendment, a citizen's right to privac. But, of course, the Patriot Act ***** all over that because we let it get enacted since, at the time, Americans were all scared of the terrorists and wanted to feel safe.

The first amendment doesn't inherently cover privacy

Nope. That's what the Fourth Amendment is for.

Just because you CAN speak freely doesn't mean you SHOULD.

Just because we shouldn't doesn't mean we should be banned from speaking freely.

Its not because of the type of data the NSA was collecting, it is the fact that theyw ere doing it in the first place which is a violation of the 4th amendment.

MFW Pakistan, a country not regarded as free by any international standard issues notices to the charge d'affairs of the US embassy in Islamabad asking for an explanation for the invasion of their citizen's privacy and demanding immediate cessation of any and all data mining, threatens a ban on all companies (Google, Facebook etc.)involved and we're just sitting here procasturbating.

China would have a field trip if the government just disclosed all classified information, some on the middle east would rejoice and NK would get a boner.

wait, nah, hold on. The government is definitely wrong in this pic but that definitely doesn't make the girl right. There is such a thing as a ceiling to public expression. Free speech isn't always targeted at the government, and assuredly not always when it's controversial matters.    
   
Slander? Political and religious propgaganda? Intrusion of privacy? We have many reasons to restrict free speech.    
   
Just....good lord, woman.

And then people who do want to hurt the country get the info that we release allowing the to more easily get through our defenses.

Turns out NSA does't look the **** unless you are a highly suspected person and even then it is only who you call, something regular in normal cases. And that anyone who breaks the codes gets sent out.
#51 to #40 - hitro (06/15/2013) [-]
I know that is the problem but releasing who they are looking at and what they do to find things out and the secrets of how they keep our country safe would drastically reduce how safe we would be as a country. The real terrorist would be able to get in to our country and screw things over much easier, which is why it is classified.


Yes they do get to decide who the terrorist are but as a person who knows someone who works at the NSA. They are not interested in who you are talking to they are intesrested in people who can really hurt this country.



In fact it requires such a high level of evidence that when they wanted to do it to the person who ended up as one of the Boston bombers they weren't allowed because they found nothing suspicious about him in their one allowed chat to him. ( If the Russians had been more consistent with their communication to us something could be different.

and it is getting ridiculous with the amount of post of people saying that they are listening to the conversations of people because they arent and one who breaks the strict rules is kicked out.

I fear government censorship because I intend to make my living creating video games, I am putting down 50,000 dollars and four years of my life on an education to make video games and when the government starts censoring everything that might offend anyone anywhere then pretty soon no one likes the things they are censoring and as such entertainment and media becomes bland and lifeless.

I fear unrestricted free speech because then people could lie without having to worry about political repercussions, I very much enjoy being able to see what's in the food I eat, and I like knowing that if someone tells me they are charging me 5 dollars for a burger I can hold them to that and not come home to a totally legitimate 50 dollar fee.

I fear spiders because you never know what you're in for with those guys, I had a bunch of medium ones that lived under my bed for longest time and they never ****** with me then this itsy bitsy spider came up my couch and bit me and off rotted a chunk out of my leg the size of a loony and about a half inch deep I still have a scar the size of a dime there.

why is everybody freaking out right now about the fact that the government is spying your conversation? it was publicly released back in 2005 when the ECHELON system was put in place...
#32 - ooberfriskyzanon (06/15/2013) [+] (13 replies)
I feel like most people don't understand. The government doesn't spy on everyone. Not without reason. The NSA leak is trying to be covered back up because the techniques used to track down targets were exposed to the enemy. Sure the data is collected, but if it serves no purpose to a mission, it is discarded. Why should it be kept if there's nothing of use; say calling a friend. On the other hand, talk about pipebombs and **** like that, then they have reason to analyze further. Hate all you want, but NSA has kept us safe.
