I agree with the analysis that Uncle Sam just does not have the time to listen to you talking to Aunt Mabel. He does have that capability, but he does not have the time.

Time? NSA has some of the biggest supercomputers on the planet. They can process a huge amount of information in a very short time. They can use key words and other algorithms to separate the wheat from the chaff. They will listen to your conversation with Aunt Mabel if what you are talking about triggers the system to spit it out.

Is anyone surprised that the Gov monitors things? We all do. Everyone peeks out the window and susses the neighbors. I do not find that shocking

How can you equate the government and its huge resources with a nosy neighbor? We have something called a Constitution that is supposed to protect us from unreasonable search and seizure by the government.

Separate the Wheat from the Chaff?

Snowden is all chaff.

This fellow is a red herring.
Look at the time folks are wasting on this ahole.

Snowden is being made an enemy of the state because he is an enemy of the state.
He is trying to bring discredit on the US, and he is revealing means and methods.
He would testify that we are all pricks for keeping an ear perked.
Effa Snowden

You’re absolutely right.

It is laughable when these fools claim that government lacks time to listen to all these calls.

That is where the money does, listeners, analyists, etc.
