it's only metadata and our e-mail...who cares

if it was such a non issue like the partisans claim then why don't we quit the program?
It doesn't really gather anything beyond what corporations gather anyways so why didn't we have this shut down?

1. No one will answer what business is it of the governments in the first place who, when, how long I

call. I've asked that in an OP and directly to supporters of this and no one will answer.

3. The corporations don't link us to each other. Binney pointed this out that the NSA does link

When they build a profile they also build profiles on everyone else linked to the suspect.

If I understand this correctly let's say that you go online to Target and buy an item. Afterwards,
you call your neighbor to tell them about the purchase. Subsequently, the neighbor goes online
an buys an item (???) that is used in the commission of a crime. Now the authorities acting like
how the NSA might work, pulls up your neighbor's dosier or whatever and sees your phone number!
Hopefully, the authorities buy your ignorance of your neighbor's doing but what a pain in the ____s!
What if they don't believe you?

Can you imagine what life would become? Nobody talking,,,,,afraid to do so...not a world I want
to live in. imho

4. I took that approach the first time my two puppies heard an airplane

flying over the house.

I told them not to worry. It's just a mega-ton piece of steel flying through the air. We're just fine.
