Oh we are going to expand that spy program, not get rid of it. I'll bet we even start requiring manufactures to build back doors into certain platforms.

Um...no we won't. If someone is running for reelection they'll say they're against spying on us citizens...then vote to keep funding the spying soon as they're back in office. The authoritarians will defend it, even want to expand spying to stop gays, drugs, libruals or whatever.

Funny I seem to have heard something like that before when George Bush started doing this, it was:  If you are not doing anything illegal you have nothing to worry about.

The odd thing is that everyone was so outraged back then.  I caused the entire nation to jump angrily to their feet and walk around in circles and mutter.

Don't worry, your life will get a lot more exciting when an algorithm coded by the lowest bidder forgets to carry the 2 and marks your cell phone's GPS for [REDACTED]

The press has done a terrible job of explaining to the public just what sort of information the government can figure out about using only telephone metadata.  All they do is keep repeating the administrations statement that it doesn't listen to our calls directly, as if that's the only important information that matters.  The public might be more concerned if the press explained how with nothing more than telephone metadata and access to google pretty much anyone can deduce all manner of private information about your life such as the health of your marriage, your relationship with your children, what your sexual preference is, how secure you are financally, what medical conditions you might have, what direction you lean politically, if you're having an affair, which people in your life are most important to you, who you associate with, etc.  Within that list is all sorts of information that can be used to blackmail, harrassment, intimidation, or just to muddy up a political process.  Which brings us to the next failure of the press...

Instead of polling a public who only has a vague idea of what's going on and then focusing on minutia in the leaker's life, they need to be asking tough questions like...

Who and how many people have access to the metadata database?
How is access to the database restricted?
How is access to the database monitored?
What criteria has to be met for records to be pulled from the database?
What sort of steps are taken to oversee how data from the database is used?
Once data has been pulled from the database, how is it controlled?
In what ways are agents allowed to make use of pulled data?
What sort of punishment do agents face for misusing data?
Has any misuse of the data already occurred?
Has any data made it's way into unauthorized hands?

I keep seeing people make this argument, and all it does is show that you haven't actually thought about the issue.  It doesn't matter if your life is "boring as shiat".  What about the journalists you count on to tell you the government is doing something against your interests?  Or what about a politician who's ideas you support?  Or what about the activist rallying for a cause you support?  Or what about a business owner you're trying to strike a deal with?  Are you 100% certain that none of the people you interact with have just as boring as life as you?  How will those people's behavior and interaction with the public, and with you, be influenced by the governments ability to find and make-use unchecked all manner of private information about their lives.

"That means no more illegal wiretapping of American citizens. No more national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime. No more tracking citizens who do nothing more than protest a misguided war. No more ignoring the law when it is inconvenient. That is not who we are.

It is the apathy of people like this that will allow the government to get away with this shiat. Unfortunately the apathetic and ignorant by far outlay those that give a damn about our rights and privacy.

It will eventually crumble and fall, but it will be from internal decay rather than a revolution, we are way to lazy for that.

The only course of action is to deliberately make weird Google searches with phrases like "dirty bomb", "Ayn Rand", "Oompa Loompa Brothel", and "chimp loves frog".

Twenty years ago that would have worked, but I am confident that any of the three letter agencies have enough computer horsepower to sort through anything they want, even a months worth of google searches. I'm sure there are storage facilities just for keeping logged data to search through later.

Yeah, but this is about spying on ALL Americans, and as much as I dislike Obama, this started well before him. Some of the ground work can be traced back to the Nixon administration.

More likely is that they show him intelligence brief after intelligence brief of actual threats in the world and he pisses in his pants out of fear of another large attack happening on his watch.

I don't believe there is some evil cabal out there trying to put their boot over all Americans and this is how they are accomplishing it. I do believe they are trading liberty for some measure (not foolproof, not 100%, a lot of theater to be sure) security. I disagree with that, but I don't think they are doing it for sinister reasons.
