Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

Wake up call? About 100 Senators and 435 representatives didn't see anything wrong with this.

Keep on dreaming. This is going to get much worse.

It's all to keep you safe right! So you don't get in the path of an exploding pressure cooker at a marathon, that kind of thing.
