    What is the state of a free society when the director of the CIA openly declares the agency wants to spy on every single action we take?

    Mobile phone services and companies such as Google could be said to be just as intrusive so that they can monetize our information, repackage it and offer it for marketing heaven money to the highest bidders. And someone big and important enabled this process. Who gave then the ability to accomplish this...?

      Google and Apple are both egregious offenders.

    As I don't text, tweet or make videos, he isn't looking at me.

    Yeah, sure.

    Seriously, though, if you don't want Uncle Sam to look at your public tweets, don't make them.  If you want privacy, don't go public with everything.

      I'm not referring to Facebook or hubpages.  I already assume those are public.

      How would you like the CIA spying on you when you are having private conversations with your family or spouse?  Or monitoring what you read and don't read?  Before the Patriot Act, it was much more difficult to spy on the reading lists of Americans.

        I didn't catch anything like that in your link.  Just text, tweet and videos.

          It's just an extension.  I don't know if you are familiar with the CIA report commonly referred to as The Crown Jewels, but it details in 700 pages many of the activities up until 1975 that were "contrary to the charter of the agency." 

          Lots of spying and mail intercepting.  There's also the plants that pretend to be activists but are really spies.  The media actually reported they spied on Occupy, but I'm sure The Tea Party, and any other organized group that challenges the status quo, are sure to be suspects

          http://www.aclu.org/blog/free-speech-na … ing-occupy  This is just about the FBI, but both agencies are doing it.

    No worries, the government already has drones that can see through the walls of your house. There are several in my area already( police) so the internet is no big deal.

      I wonder how Americans will react when drones are seen regularly.

        Nothing I can put into print comes to mind at the moment.

          I suppose we should ask the Pakistanis.
