Perhaps if you didn't have blatantly contradictory points ( Namely, not sharing personal info freely, yet being ok with warrant-less spying ) we could take you seriously.
And your incessant suggestion of political party reasons are equally nausea inducing. ( wanting privacy is now a political party position? )
In short, you don't have a position at all, since essentially you are taking both sides.
I mean your argument is that spying is not ok for a Walmart employee but ok for a Postal employee, yet the postal employee has the potential to do much more harm than the Walmart employee. ( Assuming your mail is more sensitive than your grocery list)
Me electing to give you my SS number IS not the same as the government snooping on me for criminal actions. This would be the ONLY reason the government would snoop you.
Walmart has no reason to spy on me. However, they may find financial gain if they track my buying habits and sell that info to a 3rd party. That im against.
The government, or as you say, a federal employee, only reason to look/snoop is to look for any thing breaking the law. They are not trying to make money by spying on me.
christ, it's like talking to a 1st grader.
