Did you know the government spies on us? I didn't know that!!!! Why does Obama wants to stop it?

WOW, I learn something new everyday. I didn't know this, but I'm probably the last to know, lol. I was reading this article:

On what the ACLU wants to do if Obama becomes pres.

And one thing is to end spying. I didn't even know they really spied?

My husband explained it to me ------ all of the phone calls made in the USA (whether cell or landline) are monitored in a computer system and when certain key words (like terrorist words come up) the calls are reviewed, etc. It's also done through e-mail.

If anyone knows more please share.

I personally think its great and I'm sure it has prevented some terrorist attacks.

I don't understand why Obama wants to stop it? If it can prevent a 9/11 attack, I'm all for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What are your thoughts!

  • So, you're willing to risk another 9/11 just so the gov't can't hear you talk about potty training you child and want you made for dinner?

  • they do not moniter every phone call in the whole US! That is a myth. They only moniter your calls if you are suspect of something already. There is no big computer some where listening to every call. get real. think how un realistic that is! if that were true they could catch every drug dealer & criminal out there!

  • ANYONE can monitor you it is called the internet, tapping in phone lines and don't forget cell phones and cordless phones are on airwaves like radio stations! I have actually heard my neighbors convo standing in my backyard with a cordless.......but it was boring so I hung up.
