Domestic Spying

Domestic Spying….

I think it’s interesting that the Democratic Party thinks the NSA and other branches of the government have nothing better to do with their time than to sit and listen in to Aunt Mary reciting her recipe for banana bread.  Get real people.  The only people that were affected by this were contacts linked to terrorism, phone numbers found in cell phones of captured terrorists and the like.  Hundreds of millions of phone calls occur every day; the chance of your phone call getting listened in on is very remote.  Unless you use some nice key words that would spark the computer to kick out your transmission, you have nothing to worry about.  As a matter of fact, if you’re a law abiding citizen, you don’t have anything to worry about any way.  According to a book by Dan Brown (Digital Fortress) Wall Street was targeted for attack that was thwarted by these types of interceptions (  I think it’s a small price to pay to live with the freedoms we all take for granted.  Especially if the government can catch these kinds of plots BEFORE they come to fruition.
