WASHINGTON — A presidential advisory panel has recommended sweeping changes to government surveillance programs, including limiting the bulk collection of Americans' phone records by stripping the National Security Agency of its ability to store that data in its own facilities. Court orders would be required before the information could be searched.

NSA spying seems less horrible than these other abuses, especially if data mining might prevent terrorism. Than Nguyen http://www.protectivepackaging.net

NSA spying prevents democracy. The media is not at all likely to cover government corruption when they know they are being spied on. The NSA could spy for any purpose including preventing whistle blowers from exposing government corruption. They could use it to ruin political opponents. They have used it to prevent people from legal assembly, which is a constitutional right. Every government in history has used an enemy (real or created) to strip citizens of their freedoms. You can not be for NSA spying and democracy, read a history book!

Dear fellow citizens in the WH and NSA, Please be advised that we are all created equal and that I have inalienable rights, including the right to privacy. If I give you cause to spy on me , get a warrant from the judiciary and follow the law. Thanks, An equal citizen.

Yet, all these people whining about the gov't having their phone records will be the first to complain that the gov't didn't do enough the next time the terrorist hits!
