ok "PARANOID" (edit, oops)
Hey, you said to do so.
Just kidding.
Who isn't being listened to these days.
Funny though.
They are listening but are not "hearing" a word we say.

Tell tale click or buzzes perhaps.
Or is it the peak voltage on your carrier signal. Buy a ohm and voltage meter to check if you are not sure.
Anytime some line is tapped a discrepancy occurs in the idle signal.

Eh, there was a primetime story just last night, I believe, featuring some NSA whistleblower talking about how NSA employees sit around making jokes about the "pillow talk" of average citizens. This stuff has been happening for awhile now.

The red flag for me was the governments OFFICIAL recognition of a warrantless wiretap program. That means it was going on BEFORE then, they just wanted us to KNOW ABOUT IT now. Hell, before Bush ever took office, if you were to mention the word BOMB on the telephone, it alerted the FBI (notes that this post just warranted such a flag)... And, if you mentioned enough trigger words within a certain amount of time, you were eavesdropped on. That was a reality BEFORE Bush. Now it is out in the open and you have NSA employees laughing about it on national television.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that the OP is paranoid (although that IS the case)... I am just glad that someone else realizes that they ARE watching you, and have been for some time... If enough people realize this, it won't matter that they are. They'll have a pissed off population on their hands and they'll have bigger fish to fry.

ON simple thing, probably the only thing I know to keep intent ears from your conversations. Use code only the 2 of you know or just go over personally and stop using the phone.
I have on occasion used key phrases only "We" know about.

It makes logical sense for the government to record all telephone calls, communications, etc., if possible, and store them securely in a big database somewhere.

That way, if and when public evidence indicates that someone might be a 'criminal' or a 'terrorist threat', they can get a specific warrant from whatever channels, and dredge up information from their database that they might find valuable.

By that justification, the people remain 'secure' in their privacy, as required by the 4th amendment, until a legal process justifies otherwise.

Whether the capability to do this already exists, or is being utilized, is of course a point of some debate.

But you're not paranoid for thinking it may be the case, OP. Just reasonable and forward-thinking.
