Actually, it came up in a previous thread so I've been perusing it.

As far as I am tracking the collection of USPER info is still warrant based and subject to applicable cooperation with ISPs.

They'll appreciate looking at my browsing history. I find the best porn sites on the web.

What percent do you believe the government abides by it's own laws?


I would estimate at the worker bee level 98% at the decision making level much less..

This started before Obama. The NSA has been in the monitoring business - forever. It didn't take Obama to say go.

You have it backwards they monitor known sites and look for traffic to it. For example good likely hood this site is being monitored. So if you frequent ISIL websites you can bet your communications are being intercepted. Grabing everything that goes to aMD from a site is easy. And your very naive if you think you can hide your IP address. Given enough time they can find anyone especially if you use the same sites over and over. When you have access to the Internet backbone you can monitor traffic much like placing a camera along an interstate. If they want to figure out who you are they keep placing cameras until they finally catch you driving your car out your garage.

This has been happening for many years. I'm glad you are waking to it.

I got it right, bro. Now, by all means, lets stroll down memory lane and go back to Clinton and include his idiocities in the mix. He had a little opportunity to record and track our every move on the then fairly new cool tool " www."

The man who actually said, "that depends on what your definition of ' is ' is". Well, looky there! Isis... ISIS? Cowinkadink, for sure.


And the same people want Slick Willy as First Man(iac) of the United States?

So does Google, are you really surprised? Theyve had access from the get-go. Really this should be obbious. I dont support it but how can you be unaware the government watches internet activity?

Obama actually makes a decent point in said quote. Some members here would be outraged people browsing such websites would be able to buy guns or fly..

Unless you're up to something illegal, sinister, devious or immoral, (like Hillary for instance), why care if the Government knows what sites you've visited?

I've never understood this obsession with "privacy". None of us are so special that exposing our browsing activity would even cause a ripple in life. Most people are too busy being selfish, to give a rat's arse about what others are doing.

Who runs the root DNS servers most ISP's query against?

So is it such a stretch to assume DNS queries against those aren't logged?

I have a pretty big mouth online and don't seem to be hassled at the airport nor by cops, local or otherwise.

Well for one, for us US persons it's a constitutional right... unless of course you would rather trade a sense of false security for your right to privacy (not unlike might I add is what happened in pre WWII Germany leading to a Socialist Fashism).

The internet service provider is required to retain the information.

As a licence condition.



Not mine.

I believe they daily violate the Constitution against all citizens in a list of ways--particularly in terms of privacy etc. etc. etc.

I think any other conclusion based on merely what is in the public domain on such things is . . . well over the line of delusional.

The oligarchy has gotten away with doing what it wanted and manipulating via the media for many decades.

The rest is window dressing and noise; bread and circuses.

So, your supervisor or close colleague at work is brother to a high level intel bloke in some alphabet agency.

And on a Friday afternoon, your colleague tells you over coffee that he has very reliable word that a group of Jihadi's has swooped into town and are evidently planning to torch a whole block of houses as well as machine gunning them in the wee hours of some morning in the next 5 days. They are reportedly going to hit 3 neighborhoods out of 7 they have been observing. They don't know which specific neighborhoods it will be and manpower is stretched thin. But your neighborhood is one of the 7.

Given your hostility for data you can't personally verify to the level of certainty, I suppose you'd just continue with business as usual and not even bother telling your spouse or neighbors.

What an impressive filter on reality.

Even in the late 1960's . . . when one filled out the forms for a TS clearance etc. (or any other, for that matter), the keywords were gleaned from the info you provided and ran through the computers. They bragged that they'd come up with stuff you and your closest loved ones didn't know about yourself.

Folks seem to have a ton of wishful thinking about where the files/data in those literally acres of computers come from.

Over the decades, I've bounced what my tech colleague told me in the Navy off of other folks who were in positions to know something of such goings on. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM affirmed the validity of the assertion.
