Re: Incomplete

The rhetoric is just over the top hyperbolic on this one. Break out the tin foil hats kids! The gubmint is spying on you!

I'm much more concerned about the completely unregulated, with no oversight, collection of our data by private companies.

The reasons why governments harvest data about their citizens are well documented.

Can you cite reasons why our gov agencies wouldn't collect data that they want?

Which suits some folks in Congress just fine.
And big corporate data likes people hysterical over gov intrusion.

Then there's the super-super-secret third option for folks who'd prefer to not get played by either side of the gov/corp duopoly.
They place the liberty of citizens above either gov or corps.
