Plus I remember hearing a while ago that the US had plans to spy in a more open arena.
Its called Citizen spy.
They were going to launch a number that could be called at anytime and you could leave an anonymous (as in they know you but they do not tell anyone even the courts) message about anything you suspect your neighbors of being, doing or thinking.
If the result proved to be accurate and it resulted in an arrest and conviction YOU as the anonymous get a healthy tax free monetary reward. They were working on a structure for types of report and what money gains would be awarded as in
1) Drug selling = $2000
2) Pedo crimes = $5000
3) Terorist activity = $job in white house
etc etc etc

I am so sick of hearing if you aren't doing anything wrong you have nothing to fear. What if you are doing something like being a responsible gun owner? The government borderline considers that wrong and terroristic even though it's not against the law! So just because you don't THINK you are doing anything wrong doesn't mean that someone else can't make a COURT CASE saying you are very easily with all this permissive access the government now has in our lives.
