    Could it be that congress cannot be trusted with anything that is good for the country?
    Just asking.

    The NSA is reported to be collecting everything occurring online. Everything you've searched for, every website you've ever visited, every comment you've ever left, (like this one), every email including contents, every tweet, every text, and every phone call and probably it's contents. Then, my guess is that they have super computers profile us. We need to put a stop to this and soon. This is George Orwell's worst nightmare. They forgot the F in FISA is for "foreign", so they need to lay off Americans that do not have any foreign connections. They have also forgotten that we can change things we don't like, and I suggest we find out who just voted again to spy on all Americans without cause and we boot them out of "our" government on the very next election. And I mean every single one. We've been meaning to clean house, and now is a great time. Since when do employees get caught spying on their bosses and still keep their jobs?
