Introduction:If you think Edward Snowden's plight does not affect you, think again! Yes, he was a rogue NSA whistle blower who opened up a world of in sight to all who want to know about the dealings of the NSA from the inside. See how your own life is drastically different with the NSA in place.
Do you know what areas of your life are affected by the NSA? It is reported by whistle blowers that nearly every American is affected in some way by NSA. Why do you suppose the United States government needs to be in the business of snooping in everyone's life? Go ask your senators for the answer. Cameras and recording devices are in public areas and even in private places in your home and car. Drones can actually look through walls and gather data without you knowing about it too. Do you think privacy is a word worth thinking about anymore? This kind of gathering of information has now been reported as being done for seven years. Obama just happened to be in the White House for seven of those years.
Have you ever googled something and then gone to write an email to see similar topics of your query to the right of your email to a person? This Google lets the government see all the information they want. Nothing is held back. Keep that in mind as you use your search engine as you have in the past. The NSA is compiling all the data they want on your dealings, shopping, what sites you view, what people you contact and so much about you that you can hardly believe what they know. One man wanted to know what was stored and looked in his history on his computer and he was astounded. Go look at yours.
Just try to use a cell phone that does not track some of your incoming and outgoing call data. If it does not do some compiling of your information, it will be doing it ALL! Go ahead and check out this information and know the cell phone you are using, even if it is not an Obama phone, your information is not private. Even in the most innocent of calls, the evidence can be used against you in courts, in prosecuting you or any way that info can be used by anyone acquiring it. Don't think that just because you don't use the cell phone that it is all clean either. The NSA gleans their info from a specific center in Georgia that is built just for storing and retrieving info on everyone. Go get a driver's license now and see what data they require. It is no longer just an expired or current driver's license, but a lot more.
Whether it is Edward Snowden or another person, whistle blowers will be looked down on and sought after. Not to award them for doing the right thing, but for telling and informing others of the wrong doing of a company, government or person. Bradley Manning is now going through some rigorous military protocol for whistle blowing that he did to help reveal to Americans what the behind the scenes is really like. No one would know except the whistle blowers and then they get punished for doing right. Does this make sense to you? Talk to your law enforcement support group to see where you can be helpful to whistle blowers who try to help the public who don't know everything.
It is publicized that the communication networks all give up data they have as private information. This private information should remain between you and your communication networks, but it does not! Facebook might offer a statement that you can place on your account to not allow Facebook to permit your account to be sealed to certain people, but it has been proven that is not adequate to stop the flow of pictures, information and all your dealings to be available to NSA. NSA has now required that through the courts. That is not even the end of the infringement on your privacy. Privacy? What privacy?
