Listening To Everyone

-- by Dave Johnson

Bush claims that the illegal wiretapping is OK because they are only listening to known terrorists. But now there is more evidence supporting my theory that the NSA is listening to every call, to see IF any might involve terroists. (And maybe to collect information to use to blackmail political opponents and the press.)

DOJ: NSA Could've Monitored Doctors' Calls ,

The National Security Agency could have legally monitored ordinarily confidential communications between doctors and patients or attorneys and their clients, the Justice Department said Friday of its controversial warrantless surveillance program.
Could have monitored calls between doctors and patients or attorneys and clients? They're listening to EVERYONE. They are intercepting every single call, computers are looking for certain words, and calls that trigger the computers are sent to a human for analysis. It's what the NSA is said to do, and they just added domestic calls.

When I read my health insurance contract I was fascinated to learn that the Dept. of Homeland Security can demand my medical record, they'd have to provide it, and wouldn't be able to notify me. Check your policy. And ask your doctor. I haven't asked my doctor yet. Since this is now "legal" spying on conversations between doctor and patient is just a shortcut anyway. I think we have no clue how far spying on individual citizens has really gone already.

"The Department of Homeland Decency: Decency Rules and Regulations Manual" just came out. My wife and I wrote this satire because the direction this country is going is scary. We have a section in it on the USA Decency Act, which allows the government to have a key to everyone's house to make sure everything is decent. And what needs to be reported? "If it looks like a duck, talks like a duck, walks like a duck, does 'it'like a duck, votes Green Party, likes Jon Stewart, buys free-range eggs, is childless by choice and uses a push mower, it's a duck and must be reported to The Department of Homeland Decency. www.homelanddecency.com
