It'll be hard to explain to them when they see my internet history.

I actually don't give a **** . Only people that have something to hide need to be afraid. They will be disgusted about my internet history and will probably puke a few times but that's about it..

Every government listens to its conversations, but only for key words, it not like they listen and record every word.

I'd probably guess America doesn't do that because it would be too much data to manage at once. If they had the means to do it, I'm willing to bet they would.

of which, the United States has the longest list of key words. We break at least 1 of the key words during our everyday phone conversations and texts.
#28 to #4 - stepsword (09/30/2013) [-]
So, the thing is that while they do record much of the data, the thing they mostly do is STORE it. They can't review most of it, because there's so much of it - and most of the NSA doesn't have access to that database. I mean, not that it's OK to just keep our data or whatever, but for the most part they aren't spying/picking on the 15 year old funnyjunker who writes blogs about the NSA being sucky.

They did an announcement a few days ago to congress in private that they collect as much data as possible as often as possible and process it later.

They are literally over saturated with information

OR the NSA paid them to do this so everyone laughed at it. Whenever you make fun of something or bring it up first, or yourself then others wont notice.

Did you know that in East Germany 1 out of every 16 (or 21, not sure) inhabitants were on the Stasi payroll, providing information about any anti-Communist activities.
User avatar #45 to #40 - suckittrebek (09/30/2013) [-]
As I recalled, it was 1 in 6 :/
#48 to #45 - gerfox (09/30/2013) [-]
You are right:

"The Stasi employed one full-time agent for every 166 East Germans. The ratios swelled when informers were factored in: counting part-time informers, the Stasi had one informer per 6.5 people. By comparison, the Gestapo employed one secret policeman per 2,000 people. This comparison led Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal to call the Stasi even more oppressive than the Gestapo.[27] Additionally, Stasi agents infiltrated and undermined West Germany's government and spy agencies." - Excerpt from Wikipedia

Think about it. You go to class, there are 30 people in the classroom. 5 of them are Stasi informers.

You sit on a bus with 12 people, statistically two of them are Stasi informers.
User avatar #54 to #48 - suckittrebek (09/30/2013) [-]
but.. The informers were everyday people, like you and me..
And some of the reports they made were ******* dull..
Like.. 15:47 - subject arrives at home after work..
22:25 - lights out..

So.. Can you find out how long the Stasi-archive was?
I think the file cabinets were several km long (if put together, of course)
#55 to #54 - gerfox (09/30/2013) [-]
I know they were immense - and that scientists hasn't completed searching through them yet.

Yeah, the informers were everyday people - but that's what makes it so fkin scary. The informer operation was so big that they even spied on their own without knowing.
#46 to #45 - gerfox (09/30/2013) [-]
I might be mistaken, didn't want to exaggerate!

Anyway, it's TOO DAMN HIGH!

Do people not realize that this was a conspiracy theory since 2001?

It just turned out to be true.

Probably because it's not a new concept

NSA had been doing that **** throughout the Bush years too. It's also been around since the the 1950s, and I'm pretty sure they were tapping people's phones for almost that amount of time.

At least since the Reagan years. I met a bloke who used to work for the NSA in the 80s and quit for that exact reason, he just didn't feel the need to pull an Edward Snowden.
User avatar #6 - zaggystirdust (09/29/2013) [-]
Wasn't the NSA introduced after the events of 9/11?
if so, then I'm pretty sure they didn't predict it, they were just one of the few that actually remembered it.

then again I might be wrong

I think this is from the Simpsons Movie. Which came out in 2007.

homeland security not nsa. idk when nsa was founded.
User avatar #42 to #6 - liquidz ONLINE (09/30/2013) [-]
NSA has been around much longer, Department of homeland security was made after 9/11 and the patriot act put in place which allowed this level of tracking/spying with a near infinite budget

you know what I find funny, the fact that for the majority of my life (20 years or so) the average american citizen knew or at least suspected that their government spied on them and their interactions. But it wasn't until the media decided to make a big stink out of it that everyone started freaking out...

its like living in a house with spiders, you know they are there but you don't care, and then suddenly someone says " **** you have a spider problem" and you run around screaming like a chicken with their head cut off... it just doesn't make sense...

so basically I am more annoyed with the average citizen then the NSA... but that does not mean that I enjoy the fact that some government employee somewhere is getting off to my porn stash...

also I enjoy getting up on my soap box since I rarely get to do it anymore, so I hoped you enjoyed my little rant
