Big Brother may be listening, but it’s OK

Our government, Big Brother, who constantly watches out for us, is doing it again.

Once again, Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public’s constitutional rights have been set aside temporarily in the great cause of national security. All personal communication devices you may have in your possession may be monitored by the National Security Agency to find terrorists lurking in your backyard.

When Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public bitterly complains his/her privacy and constitutional rights are being violated, Big Brother soothes their fears by saying, not to worry, we are protecting you from terrorists. It is really nothing for you to worry about.

Not to worry! While Big Brother is monitoring Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public’s benign conversations, terrorists are planning to bomb another marathon or public gathering. Fly planes into public buildings and other terrorist attacks against the American public.

I guess to Big Brother our conversations are much more interesting than some run of the mill terrorist planning on killing and maiming American citizens in their homes and places of recreation and work.

"Big Brother" & Listening

Oh John, John, what a pity you don't pay attention and you have no clue as to what NSA really does. No, they don't listen to 'conversations' unless they provide probable cause and get a court order. Yes, they ARE interested in phone call and email "externals". I assure you they are proficient and professional in doing their job within legal bounds. I was in the profession(collection,reporting, and policy) for many years and know what I'm talking about.
