Honestly, unless you're doing something you shouldn't be, than you have nothing to worry about.
You're protected by laws older than you are, laws that hundreds and hundreds of Americans died to preserve.
believe that history has shown some of our greatest leaders were non-violent (Ghandi, Jesus, Buddha, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) Remember that nothing Hitler, Stalin, or Suddam Hussein did was illegal, but rather they made the laws and legalized all that they did.
Anyways, to tie this back into what I was saying; it's important to be critical of your government, but don't go blowing up government buildings just because you think you've found something "incriminating" about the government.

Hi, Ron...Good Morning!
Thanks for the note and you certainly touch on points of similiarity and interest (proving that great minds think alike!).
I am free to talk about any of my published US Patents which are in the public domain. I am, however, under an edict from DoD under the NSA to 'report any inquiries relative to the stealth patent'. I had a phone call from a person who identified himself as an 'Undersectetary of Defense' and the person read a statement to me which I later found was excerpted from the National Security Act, as amended. I was 'ordered' to report any inquiries of any kind, by anyone, to DoD relative to that case (patent). I've only had to do that one time in 20 years when a group of Isreali's, based in Philly, contacted me relative to undertaking collaboration on some 'project' in Haifa. I reported this as instructed and the group 'disappeared' shortly thereafter.

Plus, if something higher than UNCLASSIFED shows up on here, I'm reporting that crap myself.
Call me what you will, but the national security of the US is more important to me than your feelings.

The only way an Intelligence Agency can collect against a US person is to get permission by the US Attorney General in writing.
The lawsuit is the first case to reach court involving a secret program authorized by President Bush in which the National Security Agency monitors calls, without court orders, to ferret out sleeper terrorist agents in the United States. Disclosure of the monitoring program has caused an uproar in Washington, where congressional hearings begin today on the appointment of Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden as director of the CIA. Hayden was director of the NSA when Bush's warrantless "terrorist surveillance program" was developed.
51 percent approve of the administration's use of these wiretaps — without a court order — to monitor the conversations between al-Qaida suspects and those living in the United States, compared with 46 percent who disapprove."
"I AM continually shocked and appalled at the details people voluntarily post online about themselves." So says Jon Callas, chief security officer at PGP, a Silicon Valley-based maker of encryption software. He is far from alone in noticing that fast-growing social networking websites such as MySpace and Friendster are a snoop's dream.
New Scientist has discovered that Pentagon's National Security Agency, which specialises in eavesdropping and code-breaking, is funding research into the mass harvesting of the information that people post about themselves on social networks. And it could harness advances in internet technology - specifically the forthcoming "semantic web" championed by the web standards organisation W3C - to combine data from social networking websites with details such as banking, retail and property records, allowing the NSA to build extensive, all-embracing personal profiles of individuals.
Information Operation Roadmap Part 3
The Pentagon's Information Operations Roadmap is blunt about the fact that an internet, with the potential for free speech, is in direct opposition to their goals. The internet needs to be dealt with as if it were an enemy "weapons system".
The 2003 Pentagon document entitled the Information Operation Roadmap was released to the public after a Freedom of Information Request by the National Security Archive at George Washington University in 2006. A detailed explanation of the major thrust of this document and the significance of information operations or information warfare was described by me here.
