Every Move You Make

Here in the USA, the FBI records the emails of nearly all US citizens, including members of congress, according to NSA whistleblower William Binney. In an interview with RT, he warned that the government can use this information against anyone. Binney, one of the best mathematicians and code breakers in the history of the National Security Agency, resigned in 2001. He claimed he no longer wanted to be associated with alleged violations of the Constitution, such as how the FBI engages in widespread and pervasive surveillance through powerful devices called 'Naris.'

Naris or Narus? Even this isn't quite clear.

No I am not paranoid. You are being watched, monitored, listened to, recorded. So am I. Yes, there are ways to take a step back so that you can stay wired but technically "off" the intergrid. Kinda sorta like those dudes on the "Person of Interest" TV program. In days and weeks and months to come the thread of discussion will be continued in the comments area. You are more than welcome to chime in.

Invasion of privacy?  THINK! If Google can scan every single website on the planet and update search results within minutes, don't you think that the U.S. government has access to bigger, more expensive apps?

Are you a VERIZON customer? Sit down, kiddo. Your beloved provider holds the patent for technology that can track you in your own home. You don't have to be online or on your mobile phone, either. Verizon filed for the application in May 2011, but the report was published last week due to laws stating that all patent applications be published after 18 months. In Verizon's case, they "get to you" via your DVR - at least that is the device the technology is limited to under terms of patent, for now. “If detection facility detects one or more words spoken by a user (e.g., while talking to another user within the same room or on the telephone), advertising facility may utilize the one or more words spoken by the user to search for and/or select an advertisement associated with the one or more words,” Verizon states in the patent application.

US cell phone service providers could be required to log personal text messages for upwards of two years if a proposal submitted by a group of law enforcement professionals can successfully plead with Congress.»more

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
