Yes, there's a facility being built to house data. A very big facility.

Yes, law enforcement agencies see a benefit in their having increased access to the private communications of citizens and non-citizens.

Yes, ordinary people like you and me don't want the government violating our privacy.

And.....????

Not sure what you are asking? What's next? Why bother? I also posted a link to contact reps, as someone suggested.

Listening in or reading private communication is no big deal...No one will be able to access your mind...so why worry?

What I'm saying is that this Utah facility is in and of itself nothing to fear. And that whenever law enforcement tries to push for additional surveillance powers, it is our obligation as citizens to push back, to demand that the need that law enforcement has is more pressing than our own need for privacy. I have long been concerned with privacy issues. I think the Patriot Act was a travesty. But if you want my honest opinion, I'm much more concerned with the casual way we cede away our privacy for convenience, when we put personal information out on the internet, when we digitalize our medical records, when we submit our taxes on-line, when we give personal information to grocery stores in exchange for discount cards. The hundreds of ways we give away our privacy without a second thought worries we more than the scenarios posited on this thread.

This thread is not about that facility. Fear isn't the issue either. This is about giving free reign under the Big T guise. However, the other things you mention are also important. That is why I don't do those discount cards and opt out of many so-called svc options. I agree. However, DMV also sells you.

The irony is all this access and collection is leading to the vipers in the pit going after one another also.

This is about data mining and the ability to invade the privacy of people in power or position and use information that they gather to their benefit and control. They will start at the top and work their way down until they have information on every US citizen.

Are you familiar with J Edgar Hoover and how far he wanted to go? This is a modern day J Edgar Hoover agenda.
I thought my emoticon gave away my sarcasm. I agree with you and many others in this thread.
