Watch out, Santa might be a NSA agent. He know who’s been naughty or nice. And that’s the kind of information that the NSA can use…if they don’t already know. Not that it makes any difference to them if you’ve been ‘nice.’ When it comes to NSA snooping, everyone is on the list.
Riffing off a Christmas classic, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is using a familiar face to highlight just how invasive the NSA has become. At least you can see these NSA Santa agents. In reality, if it wasn’t for Edward Snowden, you wouldn’t even know they were there.
(On a side note, you would think that if the NSA is going to go through all that trouble, they could at least pull up my Amazon wishlist and send me a present for being good for goodness’ sake.)
The NSA’s ability to seize the phone records of any American, at any time, anywhere, and regardless of criminal or terrorist intent, is serious business.
According to U.S. News, Sen. Paul is “moving closer to filing a lawsuit in federal court against National Security Agency surveillance programs. …If Paul does file a lawsuit it would be the fourth major legal attack against the NSA’s bulk collection and five-year storage of American phone records.”
As an extra win, a Federal judge has finally declared the NSA snooping program unconstitutional.
This is just the beginning though. If we don’t keep the wave going against this sort of government snooping, we’re going to be living in a dystopian future where the Fourth Amendment no longer applies; where there’s no such thing as ‘probable cause’; all because we’ve sacrificed our personal liberties for a frail and false sense of security. It’s possible we’re too late.
Sen. Paul is fighting illegal phone surveillance and NSA snooping, are you?
