NSA Panel Member Recommends Increased Data Collection

 

All of a sudden, nobody needs to need to look at the Constitution. A group of elites selected by one man decide what is ‘good’ and do it.

Emboldened by the cowardice of many Americans the NSA throws a drag net across the United States and gathers whatever they want with no warrants or due process.

Amendment 4 of the Constitution of the United States reads:The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

What are communications if not the modern equivalent of ‘papers and/or effects’? OK, that seems simple enough. So I guess that electronic ‘papers’ aren’t covered by the constitution? Cool! So I can hack into a bank and get any data I want right? If I don’t have protection from the NSA snooping, then I expect I can snoop on them, right? Their electronic effects certainly aren’t protected right? We should probably ask Edward Snowden about that.

What about their ‘justification’? Violating our rights “could prevent the next 9/11”. Just like rounding up the Jews could have prevented world war one?
