Warrantless surveillance is wrong, but I can't see in the future how we are going to be table to really enforce it. I used to work at a company years ago where our jobs were to set up cameras to film the flow of traffic for the state of NEW YORK.The thousands of hours of footage we took of people who would have no idea they were being film. It was amazing what we saw. Mind you we were doing something legal. Now God knows what private firms do, and other questionable ventures. I remember a man knowledgeable of such matters tell me about 15 years ago. Once you leave your apartment in Manhattan, you are most of the time through the day on film somewhere. until you again enter a private home. Fascinating. I really figure in the world I live in , it is very possible someone is listening to my conversations on the phone. Maybe I can be a little cynical but that's what I feel, it does not bother me , have fun. Life is to short to worry about these things. There is very little privacy left for any of us

Totally right Dan,
I have told my kids not to expect anything that they do online or on a phone to be private.
You can wish it and want it, but if you expect it to be private you are a fool. Further, we should know by now that even if governments promised that this was not taking place, in all probability it is, and we will never be told the truth.

There is some grain of truth also to just having common sense, not making statements that are inflammatory, and not discussing personal matters. Anyone that discusses sex or money online though text, email or phone is a total moron, unless they just do not care about privacy.

Isn't this a political discussion? I'm staying out of it!

No, this is a privacy discussion, Oliver Stone discussion.
