The Supreme Court Logic That Could Destroy Privacy in America – Conor Friedersdorf – The Atlantic

NSA Data Center

“All telephone users realize that they must ‘convey’ phone numbers to the telephone company, since it is through telephone company switching equipment that their calls are completed. All subscribers realize, moreover, that the phone company has facilities for making permanent records of the numbers they dial, for they see a list of their long-distance calls on their monthly bills.”

And because you give the phone company the number you are dialing, you don’t have a reasonable expectation of privacy? So if I give information to an entity that the NSA can hack, they have the authority to acquire that information? I suppose if I tell my best friend something privately, the NSA has the authority to use that information provided they are capable of beating the information out of my friend. The so called ‘supreme court’ is no longer the defender of liberty and The Constitution, they are party to its violation. People, this is what tyranny looks like.
