America’s spy agencies want to read your blog posts, keep track of your Twitter updates — even check out your book reviews on Amazon.
"they're making a list, checking it twice, gonna find out whose naughty, etc."
Folks, this is a SCAM to try to scare you into staying silent about what is going on with your country. The government cannot possibly read and track the billions of internet messages traveling the cables every day. It is simply impossible and the original structure of the internet was designed to prevent that kind of centralization.
The government wants you to go back to being isolated, afraid to discuss what is going on in this country with your neighbor. They want to scare you away from the blogs and social networks and back into getting all your news from ABCNNBBCBS.
Otherwise, why ANNOUNCE that they are investing in this technology? They WANT you to know (or think) they are reading your tweets. To keep you properly cowed down and obedient!
