“Glad about the ruling, but I would still boycott the store. I mean, why help their business now?”

“We had a similar situation here in Oregon and the bakery was closed down within a year. They now operate out of their house, but I guarantee it is nowhere near the level they had at their storefront location.”

“I will bet there will be a lot of that too. The owners apparently never thought about all of the bad press they would get, and a small business can't take much, before they are out of business.”

“Apart from the obvious violations of liberties...as a taxpayer, the fact that the NSA may be spending countless dollars and manpower tracking my kids' myriad meaningless texts, ....I don't think I'm getting my money's worth.”

“Hey Zippy --- I bet we were in college together.

Yeah, the NSA built a warehouse to process some 5 zetabytes of data. It doesn't stand to reason they need to watch every American for National Security interests unless the definition of National Security is extreemely broad to include people who might participate in a demonstration or use free speech to voice an unpopular/anti-establishment opinion.

If it is truely only National Security against foreign agents that are being tracked then the NSA could very quickly eliminate 98% of Americans within six months and stop tracking and collecting and processing their personal information and concentrate their resources on the questionable remaining 2%.

But, that was never the goal of building a facility so large that it could track every phone and capture every phone call every day and catalog and warehouse all that data for ages.”
