Gazillions. That’s the number of times that the federal government has spied on Americans since Sept. 11, 2001, through the use of drones, legal search warrants, illegal search warrants, federal agent-written search warrants, and just plain government spying.

I've always assumed that everything I ever posted, web page that I've browsed, subject that I've searched, or email has been recorded, monitored and stashed away in some Raiders of the Lost Ark type storage facility for future use against me.

Becoming a member of ATS probably sealed my fate.
