Other democracies - Britain and Israel, to name two - are well acquainted with such domestic security measures. But for the United States, the sum of these new activities represents a new level of governmental scrutiny.

Probably a safe bet to add the Netherlands to that list as well. We got more phone taps than the USA. In absolute numbers.

All of you should be reading Antifascist Calling, if you're not already.  The author has been following the NSA power grab for the past two years almost, and sources his work well.

Absolutely.  Because America wouldn't have it any other way.  If you think about it, a good chunk of your workday goes to paying these assholes.

They spy on you, you pay them for it.

They wreck the economy, you give them bonuses.

They have ridiculous wars that nobody can seem to explain, you foot the bill.

If America didn't want this sort of shit, they wouldn't keep buying it.

"The cell phone was an item (of personal property) on (Diaz's) person at the time of his arrest and during the administrative processing at the police station," the justices wrote. "Because the cell phone was immediately associated with defendant’s person, (police were) entitled to inspect its contents without a warrant."

Can you password protect a smartphone?

Edit: And not have the smartphone company/cell carrier let the cops in for 20 bucks.  I know Dell lets the cops in to encrypted hard drives if they asked nicely.

Bookmarked. Thanks. I've been looking for more places to get news besides the one I already use.
