What amazes me is that its news in the first place, i mean how daft do you have to be to actually think that things you do on the internet of all places are safe, secure, and private from government spy and security agencies?
I'm out of town for a bit over the week, missed the breaking news, was at a table and this came up. I thought they were just talking about all this in general as this isn't new news, I didn't think. But the media and some people act as this is shocking. This doesn't mean I think it is right or wrong, but I was surprised to see this was really news to a lot of people.
I'm a bit torn, but my bottom line is since I can't trust the gov't, they have unquestionably lied to us before. It should be very difficult to classify anything and as soon as possible all things become declassified. They are just voted in, not some type of "you get to know everything and we know nothing", that isn't part of the deal. Tired of them deciding if we can handle it or not. This needs to change, they weren't given that power, they just took it and it shows again deceit on their end.
