Rep. King, just fes up to the fact you like to fuck goats and the NSA has the texts and pics to proves it. After all it's better to merely thought to be a pervert than a lying, hypocrital, contemptable, brain damage shill.
The defenders of these programs weasel, twist, and abuse the language in ways that make "1984" and The Red Queen look like amateurs. So how about instead of them telling why these programs don't violate the Fourth Admendment, why don't they tell us what they think would be a violation of the Fourth Admendment. That might give us a starting point to start reining them in.
"In a statement, LG said that its smart TVs collect viewing information like channel, TV platform, and broadcast source in order to "deliver more relevant advertisements and to offer recommendations to viewers based on what other LG Smart TV owners are watching." "
People buy your products and you make a profit. That does NOT give you the right to treat them like sheep to be sheared for a continueing income stream. If you want that business model let people know what you're doing and give them the products.

Guess he never saw any of the nine seasons of "Spooks" a British series about MI6. They we're pretty acurate about the intellegnce agencies capabilities long before Snowden showed it wasn't just make believe.
I am so tired of power junky control freaks in a position of authority. Since they think privacy is obsolete and we if we're doing nothing wrong we shouldn't care about these privacy violations, then I propose the following. Before they can put these type of policies in effect for one year prior they must do the following:
1) Post all personnal financial data and metadata of all communications updated in real time.
2) Have a real time audio and video feed of their all activities all the time.
3) Have to go naked (for some of these folks that will be a hardship on us) all the time.
If they think their policies are so important to public safety that they agree to these immodest proposals, I might rethink my objections to them.
