    Is it really a spy center if we know it's a spy center? Just saying.

    Maybe a data mining center would draw less attention.
    It is the old west out there in Bluffdale where the polygamists roam. :whistling:

    Ever been to Ft. Meade?

    NSA already has the world's largest spy center (and employs more civilian employees than any other federal agency).

    Never been there, looks like Ft. Mead will now be the worlds second largest spy center.

    All governments, ours included, are notorious for abusing power. This spy center will be used to sift through your every phone call, forum post, and credit card transaction. You have no privacy left in this world. That's what.

    :agree:


    If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about.






















    My Response: If there is no reason to suspect then you have no reason to look!!!!!

    It's quite apparent that you have no idea what the intelligence business is all about. I think that you not only require a tin foil hat, but you should most likely cover your entire house with it.

    You aren't smart enough to realize that no one in that game cares about you, or your silly credit card purchases. I would have to guess that your paranoia demands that the US have no SIGINT capability at all. Maybe you'd be better off living on an island somewhere, plowing with a sharpened stick, and eating insects and cat tails or something.

    You really place too much importance on yourself and your little bitty transactions, hoss.

    It is obvious that you don't keep up with current events.

    So the last thing I read about it said something like, "the ability to monitor every piece of electronic communication on earth" or something like that.

    The NSA knew you posted "so what?" before I did.

    Now THAT is the $64,000 question, isn't it?

    The only thing we can do... Work with conservative politicians to replace the current crop of R's and D's who don't seem to give a crap. From President to dog catcher.

    I think they all ought to go to that particular farm where they protect the paranoid and those who suffer from delusions of governmental interest and those who deem themselves somehow important.

    If you don't trust your government, and I certainly don't trust this one with that treasonous schmuck in control, elect someone you can trust. If you don't trust anyone, then you need to go back to the home, where you can be properly medicated. SIGINT is very important to the US, especially since we've still not recovered from what Jimmy the Peanut Farmer did to us during his one overly long term.

    If you think that NSA really gives a fat s--- about you and your credit cards, you're delusional and probably should not be allowed to own a firearm. In fact, you had to have lied on your 4473's.

    Who said anything about credit cards? And did you even read the article? Does it not concern you even a little that all this is taking place together? If not, good for you... It seems you've already been medicated.

    Try decaf.

    Yeah although I dont like the idea of spying on Americans, but if they are watching people like me they really are bored. Maybe they could at least stop the other countries from attacking us.

    The NSA kind of reminds me of the TSA. They mug all sort of old ladies and children but have yet to catch a real terrorist.
