Ars: FBI to ACLU: Nope, We won’t tell you how, when, or why we track you.
Yeah, so now that Barry signed all this gun stuff, people are freaking out about the background checks and shit. I’ve been writing about this since this website started, but nobody wanted to listen to me. I talked about it here for instance. The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) is fighting a losing battle to big, intrusive government. They collect petabytes a day on us. They know EVERYWHERE you have driven since basically 2008. Times, photos, everything. And they can get a record of your credit card purchase without a warrant. And they can get a record of all of your phone calls. And with text messages and emails, not only can they get a record of them, they can READ them. Without a warrant.
I’m all for national security but for fuck’s sake people. I would rather live free and live with a little bit of fear than live under a government microscope. We seriously need to vote fucking Libertarian already. Make everything legal, reduce government by about 85%.
