The team behind Stop Watching Us says:
"Since the Snowden leaks started, more than 569,000 people from all walks of life have signed the StopWatching.us petition telling the U.S. Congress that we want them to rein in the NSA.

Seriously, so many agencies, interests, and corporations are tapping into our lives that its amazing that the Internet still works.

It’s like living in a damned E.F. Hutton brokerage ad:
