think of businesses emailing and phoning about take-over strategies, new product development, IPO development or someone trying to invent something and get it patented before anyone else.
then think about gov't snooping on communications and the impact they can have on the above when intercepting communications above these topics.
and the IRS, if they ever sober up from their confrences! OMG! OMG!
but then SHOULD we worry if with all this snooping the gov't can't track/nail illegal citizens, or track visitors who overstay their student visas, or find the guy who supposedly leaked this PRISM story to begin with (opps, he was in Hong Kong according to the media [Hong Kong: a small, low profile, port city in CHINA,,,,?????....go figure] but now he's gone "missing")
