Legal "The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April. The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an 'ongoing, daily basis' to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries. The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk - regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing." Hey Americans, welcome to the club. And here we were, afraid of Google!

They will just switch to using tools such as
- Encrypted VOIP routed via something like TOR,
- carrier pigeon or
- semaphore flags.

It is a very sad day for those now living in the land of the not so free.

So far there has been no comment here about their violation of the 1st ammendment. Not being a US Citizen the situation is not that clear at the moment.
