NSA Surveillance

(image) The NSA required Verizon to turn over information on all domestic and international calls on an "ongoing, daily basis," in order to track suspicious activity. This order is a response to the bombings that occurred during the Boston Marathon in April. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court also gave the NSA and the FBI access to tap into central internet servers as well.
The Guardian reported that while call content is not being provided, "the numbers of both parties on a call are handed over, as is location data, call duration, unique identifiers and the time and duration of all calls."

 I'm glad - I think it's a good move for our safety
 I don't like it at all - they shouldn't meddle in our business
