"it’s Orwellian and it kills liberty and freedom on a scale never seen before. It’s not a way to stop terrorism. It IS terrorism. The courts are allowing this. The government loves this. The only ones left to oppose it are us." - Michael Arrington

It's disgusting when a politician (Rand Paul) has to introduce legislation to protect the fourth amendment. It's in the constitution! It should need any additional legislation to hold it up! I guess the same could be said about amendment #2 as well.

The new NSA datacenter is scary with its capabilities.

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")

Is that supposed to be a joke?

Gl4x4 is (basically) full of 2nd amendment supporters that are DIY'ers, who also support individual freedom and democracy; all of which pretty much own firearms, and "dangerous" offroad vehicles

......Of course gl4x4 is being monitored, just like pirate4x4 is and probably just about every other 4x4 website that caters to outdoor enthusiasts that support what America was +/- 20 years ago

This is a forum that is more or less open to the public, anything posted here is available to be read by anyone with access to this forum. There is no expectation of privacy here. I wouldn't post anything here or any other place on the internet that I wouldn't put on a billboard in front of my house or shout in the town square.

Just trying to point out the obvious, do not expect privacy on a public forum. I'm not sure what that has to be with who is President or what anyone thinks of him.
