Meet the New Boss

Same as the old boss! [sometimes I wonder if anyone else is old enough to get these references. –iron]

Don’t you feel so much better now that instead of the NSA spying on you, they changed the law so that now the telcos will be doing the spying?

So much for not getting fooled again.

    USA Freedom Act sucks slightly less than Patriot Act.

    It is amazing, liberal hero messiah (Obama) has under his rule legitimized the illegal activities that Bush started. NSA was spying illegally till now (and court even ruled its illegal) but now overwhelming congress and Obama has signed this into law.

    Similarly under Bush, he ordered detention of individuals (including US citizens) without trial (and was illegal) till Obama legalized in NDAA 2012.

    Four words to the NSA (I know you’re listening still): Get a damn warrant! Here’s another four – Check the damn Constitution!

    It’s delightfully entertaining (and educational) to watch all the angst taking hold at the NSA and Congress as they fret over the increasing advances in encryption technology as people and IT companies finally begin to take online privacy and security more seriously. From recent news reports I’ve seen, ISIS and other such cohorts already have been and often appear to be better at it than most of our major banks and retailers (and movie studios)! Meanwhile, the TSA has been busy proving you can’t go from minimum pay jobs flipping burgers one day to a “professional” security screener the next. Our tax dollars circling the drain. Might as well send ’em to Afghanistan to build more roads and schools for the Taliban to blow up. What a crazy upside down world we have here. Sigh.

    Though we generally like to think of ourselves as citizens and consumers, in actuality we are the product online. Perhaps the growing movement in Europe demanding online activity be erased after a certain period will take root globally before long.

    Can’t even imagine what this Brave New World will look like when the kids are my age.

    Technically, I think that the Telcos were ALWAYS saving this data, just as Google and the others have ALWAYS saved your search history and/or e-mail. So the only difference is that now the governement can’t see it without talking ot a judge first.
