Every text, phone call, and email is being stored forever. If anyone wants to know whatever about you, all they need to do is bribe someone at the NSA and they have it. Eventually, the existence of such a database should legally be subject to subpoena right down to a divorce case. That should be a good one to read when that argument is made in court. But the bottom line, why do those in government have to know everything about every single person? Are they really that paranoid as was Stalin?
So . . . just as it was before this amazing electronic age.
If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it. Or, just say it to their face!
