    The government knows who you’re calling.

    Every day. Every call.

    Former employees of the National Security Agency say the publishing of a court order asking Verizon to hand over all its phone calling records for a three-month period opens a new window on an operation that has been in place for years and involves all major U.S. phone companies.

    “NSA has been doing all this stuff all along, and it’s been all these companies, not just one,” William Binney told news program Democracy Now on Thursday. “They’re just continuing the collection of this data on all U.S. citizens.”

    This is old news Rev. It's called "Total Information Awareness". I warned everyone about this years ago. Nobody listened then. Took awhile for y'all to catch up didn't it? This is from 2006 . . . AT&T provided National Security Agency eavesdroppers with full access to its customers' phone calls, and shunted its customers' internet traffic to data-mining equipment installed in a secret room in its San Francisco switching center, according to a former AT&T worker cooperating in the Electronic Frontier Foundation's lawsuit against the company. SOURCE

    So it's not just a matter of the government seeking phone records it's a matter of corporate power merging with government power, and what is it called when that happens? Fascism?

    Looks like this is another wacky conspiracy theory of mine that turned out to be true.
