    Well everybody your worst fears are now confirmed. ABC news on Good morning America is reporting a story about Operation PRISM. The NSA has the ability to tap into ANY server in the country and monitor anything they want for what ever reason they make up. That means they can access every pics, e-mail and post you have ever sent over the internet. Your privacy and freedom as an Americans are gone. Just don't ever give up on the 2nd amendment.

    I have to offer up a sad chuckle reading the OP post. Americans will give up ANYTHING to attempt to maintain the status quo and their comfort; to bend a knee to an authority figure. Willfully accepting every lie, our brains reward us chemically for ignoring truth. To be slaves is part of our DNA, in fact, that is why we are who we are.

    Our owners have strategic intelligence, great patience, and manipulative psychology on their side. We have celebrity worship and a desire to have a nicer car than our neighbors. Ants in a flat glass plate. Glorified Neanderthals; we are really nothing that special.

    I am very sorry, but yes, that will include the 2nd being removed and all private gun ownership banned at some point. Hopefully later than sooner, but it is a given. http://www.thedailysheeple.com/eros...o-will-resist-when-society-breaks-down_062013

    Not only are they reading this post, but if desired, the NSA can also follow the traffic (you) who sees it. With the data storage facilities that can store more bytes of information than any other system in history, combined; they can cross search and instantly see where you have been and see what you have seen. Let's say Survivalblog.com, AR15.com, THR.com, etc., in combination with a really "subversive" website you MIGHT get "flagged", a more detailed computer generated report run and then (depending on arbitrary thresholds) have a real person look at your patterns of internet usage. If an item of interest is discovered, you are screwed.
    My advice:
    1) Use an ironport or other means of more secure internet surfing,
    2) Do not be a sucker and go to sites that you KNOW are subversive unless you are using a public computer in a secure, anonymous setting and even then think "why am I risking getting flagged" before logging on.
    3) Start having those conversations that might be construed as a threat to the US Gov't and/or its personnel in person with trusted friends. Even if you are blowing off steam or bullbubblegumting, it can and will be stored and possibly scrutinized.
    4) Share data in person through USB storage keys, anything you send or share online is being stored. Even stupid stuff like Army Field Manuals; download enough and there is a pattern.
    5) Create a online persona that can not be traced back to you without a lot of time/effort, avoid using things like Blue Devil PA that are descriptive to a small number of people.
    6) Your computer and it's storage is fairly wide open to the NSA. With motivation, time and effort they will find your file "how to booby trap a moose carcass" written in Finish from the Winter War '39-'40
    7) If you are reading this, "you just made the list" (Francis aka Psycho from Stripes). It sucks, but there are things you can do to lessen your footprint and make it difficult to follow. Just like foiling burglars, if you make it time consuming or difficult, they will probably move on to easier pickings, unlike burglars there is no fear of being caught.

    Can't un-ring this bell. They will be doing a version of this for eternity. Weird that with all of this NSA tech that they couldn't stop the Boston bombing.

    Further moral decline in America and The People will do nothing to hold Their government employees accountable. The government workers are sticking their middle finger in the American Peoples faces once again.

    They aren't interested in stopping things like that because, it sends the troubled masses to their email to write their Representatives begging to give up more of their freedom for a little perceived security!

    They are only interested in real patriots who could remove them from their comfy seats and salaries

    All forms of flash drive have unique identifiers that attach themselves to any information that was stored on them. The industry started doing this probably 7 years ago now. As of Windows 7 there is a way to retrieve those identifiers from the machine that accessed it.

    'Freedom' is an illusion and has been since the 50s.

    Don't look now, but the Coast Guard has never needed a warrant to board your boat and inspect you. The Supremes gave them an exception to the fourth amendment more than a century ago.

    The sky didn't fall then, it won't fall now.

    Well, unless you want the sky to fall, and are just waiting for the day-- then by all means, shiny side out!

    The U.S. Government Has Been STEALING User Data From Major Internet Companies Without Their Permission

    Old news really. The Oligarchs keeping an eye on the cattle. Has nothing to do with (fake) terrorism. Chances are, you are not one of the people they give a damn about anyway. Information on IMPORTANT/powerful people and organizations, yes.

    “There is a massive apparatus within the United States government that with complete secrecy has been building this enormous structure that has only one goal, and that is to destroy privacy and anonymity, not just in the United States but around the world,” charged Glenn Greenwald, a reporter for the British newspaper “The Guardian,” speaking on CNN. “That is not hyperbole. That is their objective.”

    An old video on the subject, but a good one, although dated. The long term goals of the monitoring of the hive will make what we have now very primitive.
    Nanotechnology and implants - yes, brain implants - will eventually take humans to the next level of evolution. Tied together and much more advanced.

    We are not talking 2350 here, most scientists say 20 years.

    The masses will be clamoring for their implants. It will not be necessary to force them on anymore. Those that refuse will not gain the superior cognitive abilities and will be seen more as a sub-species, like a house pet of sorts.

    This is no joke, but will be seen that way by the deluded. It is the future laid out for your children. A sea of compliant drones with no independence. Facebook and Twitter are primitive/caveman tech in comparison. In the future, people will be tied together via a grid via implants. Think Borg w/o the cool ships. The purpose being the absolute control of the masses via a central computing complex.

    The first subjects to receive the implants in the next few years (maybe already) will be soldiers who will be turned into super performance enhanced killing machines.

    In layman terms, be thankful you may live and die NOW.

    Not saying this does not bug me but if you ever used a credit card or took a loan or sent an email the net of big brother has ensnared you way before this.

    Look at google eyes trying to become a new hit. But really it isn't needed, most of us already carry a cellphone everywhere we go. Obama dont hand out free phones out of the kind generosity of the tax payers pockets for nothing. He's akin to a sidewalk crack dealer trying to get more people hooked on his product, the first one is free.

    You'll have to link up to more info about this, because I don't believe it. IF it were true, you could not match an MD5 hash of said file after transferring it via USB flash drive - which is something that I do all the time.

    The implications of such implants as you describe them would be true, but 20 years? Come on. In the past fifty years of brain research, we've barely been able to develop the ability to control movements of small insects and interpret human nerve impulses enough to barely control synthetic limbs - but you think that in the next 20 years the technology is going to skyrocket to the point of being able to interface the brain with an actual computer network. I think we have a LONG way to go before anything like that is developed, or even desired in the way you believe it would be.
