    Long interview from a former whistleblower about the NSA, government spying, and why you should be concerned:

    "Well," you might ask, "if I'm not doing anything illegal why should I be concerned?"
    This is the typical response. The reality is that all this information that's being collected can be used against people and land them in trouble even if they've done nothing wrong.

    "… I went to the House Intelligence Committee where I stayed for 17 years. In the last 5 of those years, I had the NSA account, which means that I supervised […] to make sure the NSA was doing things legally, was doing things effectively, in a financially good manner […] and I would make recommendations to changes in their budget every year. […] What happened was that only a couple of months before I retired in 2002, I found out about this secret program that I was not supposed to know about […] And let me tell you, no matter what they say today […] it was not just metadata, it was content; it was dragnet content domestically. Furthermore, they had just then started, by […] July 2002, they had started collecting other information, non-communications information on Americans, and database-ing it. So I’m just going to go down a very quick list of some of the things […] they are collecting: land phones, your cell phones, your emails, your texts, your skype, your chats, your webcams, your social media postings—the FBI loves them… postal mail—a huge program on the postal mails, business records other than communications; the Patriot Act is so broadly worded, they can go to any business, and get any record, and put a gag order on the order, so he can’t tell you that your records have been sceded. Government records have been amassed, which was forbidden under the Privacy Act, but apparently there is a national security exception to that now; so all local, and state, and federal government records, can be amalgamated in a federal database. That alone gives them an enormous amount of information about you, including gun licenses of course."

    If our Theoretical Physicist friend here is correct about Multiverse........
    and if my idea that Multiverse Theory indicates non-linear time is close to being true.....

    .. then some horrible disasters have already been delayed over twenty years in our time line.....
    and it is just amazing how good of a job must actually be being done by our NSA - CIA in this time line?!
