It is a bit of cheek to eavesdrop on a friendly nation.

NSA is a necessary evil. I, for one, as long as I am a law-abiding citizen, do not fear the government getting into my emails. I do resent commerce knowing my needs and wants and using that for their own gain.

Patricia it is not a necessary evil. They do not gain anything by illegally spying on American citizens. While they are busy sifting through people's dirty laundry the real terrorist are getting away because they are so overloaded with irelivant materials. If the people in charge can get away with not following the rule of law then there is no law. I have even heard rumors that the NSA blackmailed polliticians so they could get their way. This would be an extreme abuse of power.

As I remarked elsewhere, France and Mexico have each accompished something we should emulate, and which I'll bet the NSA spying didn't turn up. France has outlawed hydraulic fracking. Mexico has outlawed GMO corn.

Patricia, a federal judge in New York gave permission to Chevron Oil to access all MY emails because I have signed a few petitions condemning their actions in Ecuador. Do you think they could get these if the NSA didn't have them first? Oh, come on. Also because what Jamie said.

Wish all people and countries didn't even do evil so we wouldn't have to even think of eavesdropping in the first place. Thanks Cal

The NSA sounds like it's taken a few pages from J Edgar and all his blackmail files. That's how he got all of the power he had. Agree with Jamie and Joanne, the NSA snooping is Not a necessary evil, it's just evil.

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
Yes, check the U.S. budget. Did NSA or the CIA suffer financially from the gov't shutdown? Were they excluded so they could continue their spying ways....and use the old "national security" grounds? Were people going hungry? Were children unable to attend their Head Start programs? Were they using Soc. Sec. as a bargaining chip? I agree 100% with Jamie's post--yes, they are out of control and need to be reined in. Where is the oversight, transparency & accountability to us taxpayers who are footing the bill.....while they spy on us without merit?
While I certainly have absolutely nothing to hide, like most of us here, I strongly object to the collection of my data WITH MY TAX DOLLARS. If this were actually working, there would've been no Boston bombing, no US military officer killing many soldiers at Ft. Hood, no Sandy Hook massacre of innocent children.....
In fact, it was recently reported that NO terrorists have been thwarted by collecting our data.
France, Mexico, Brazil and other countries, (as well as embassies) that the U.S. has spied on, need to follow through and take the U.S. to task over this spying.

But yet if it happens to the U.S. we go after them and try them in a court of unjust law. Our Goverment Sucks

Patricia R. I think that you should watch this video below to understand why it's not a good thing to have blanket surveillance. As it said at 4 minutes, if you wouldn't want someone coming into your home, uninvited, and reading your mail and going through your closets, why do you accept everything you say on the internet to be ok that this is done to you?
