My question is why? Why must they feel that they must have that level of invasion of our privacy?
There is no legitimate need for this kind of intrusion into our lives. I think it’s about time we do the same to the Government. Start data mining for everything on every Government employee including their home addresses and other personal information.
If they don’t like it, they can lead by example and stop doing it to us.
I agree with this completely. We need a lot more public information about elected and appointed government officials, plus any employee or contractor who makes decisions that affect us or who has access to our private information.
What I’d really like to see is some independent group that starts a website listing information about public officials. Nearly everyone has a cell phone with a camera. They should take photos of the comings and goings of all government officials and post them on some sort of watchdog “facebook.” Just keeping a record of the date, time, and location of the comings and goings of these people would give us a treasure trove of information about what they are up to. I’d start with 0vomit and Hillary. (Is she visiting a plastic surgeon? Campaign donors? Foreign nationals? Inquiring minds want to know.)
Violating their privacy? We keep hearing the argument that if you’ve got nothing to hide, you shouldn’t worry about the government having access to your private information. So if that’s true, it should be true for our “masters” as well.

Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.
