    Were you under the impression that your credit card transactions are private? If so, I am sorry to burst your bubble. As you will see below, there are actually multiple government agencies that are gathering and storing records of your credit card transactions. And in turn, those government agencies share that information with other government agencies that want it. So if you are making a purchase that you don't want anyone to know about, don't use a credit card. This is one of the reasons why the government hates cash so much. It is just so hard to track. In...

    The Obama administration, already under fire for the IRS scandal and National Security Agency snooping of the computers and cellphones of Americans, is also spending millions to have private contractors conduct a dragnet for confidential and personal credit and bank transactions without a warrant.

    Get ready for another front on the debate over privacy, consumption, and the trade-off between them. Yesterday, Judicial Watch announced that they had received data through a FOIA demand that showed warrantless surveillance on 5 million American consumers — not for national-security reasons, but for the new Consumer Financial Protection Board. The documents show that the controversial panel has contracted out the service of trawling through millions of transactions, emphases in original: Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained records from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) revealing that the agency has spent millions of dollars for the warrantless...

    Well America, it has continued to get piled higher and deeper. There was Benghazi – but wait, Congress doesn’t have time to fully investigate to find individuals responsible and hold them accountable; so, it’s swept under the rug. Congress can’t deal with Fast and Furious effectively; it goes the way of the dust on top of the door jamb: you know it’s there but can’t see it so forget about it. While the immigration bill, the Supreme Court ruling on the Voting Rights Act and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and the racially charged Zimmerman case had the focus...
