Big Brother’s Watching: The NSA's Misapplication of the Precautionary Principle

Benjamin Franklin once said "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Franklin was describing what is known as the ‘precautionary principle.’ This is a principle while good has been twisted by government in the name of safety.

IRS Takes One From the NSA Playbook

The IRS has been the nation’s tax officer for more than a century, and tax collecting is what it has always done, until now. The IRS is being placed in charge of enforcing ObamaCare, the President’s signature legislative accomplishment. Now that the American people have had a chance to read the law, a majority still oppose it, and a near-majority would support defunding it. Another thing the American people have recently discovered is that the IRS has been systematically discriminating against Conservative and Tea Party non-profits. The IRS is an agency out of control.

Shared Secrets - The NSA Knows More Than They Should

Lovers of freedom know that a limited government is the only way to achieve it. Limiting our government in the modern age means also limiting how it uses our personal data.  If you want to keep a secret, don't tell anyone. The only way to be sure data is not used improperly is not to allow them to collect it.

Why NSA’s “Metadata” Collection Should Disturb You

There is much confusion about the NSA’s secret surveillance program Prism. It doesn’t record the content of all of our private phone and other digital communications. Rather, it stores so-called “metadata” about them for future reference, in perpetuity. By its own admission, the federal government is collecting massive amounts of ‘metadata’ on every single American.

“100% Security”: Obama’s Cradle-to-Grave Surveillance

At a congressional hearing in March, Senator Ron Wyden asked the question that a leaked FISC order answered weeks ago. “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” “No sir,” replied James Clapper, the NSA’s Director of National Intelligence. “Not wittingly.”

NSA Story Disrupting Left-Right Divide

As a kid, I had a bookcase devoted to 24 leather-bound tomes containing “the Sum of Human Knowledge.” Whenever I had to do a school report, from aardvarks to Zanzibar, I would pull out the correct volume of the Encyclopedia Britannica and take notes. (It was tougher to report on Krakatoa and Martin Luther since my cousins’ Irish Setter ate K-L. [Remind me to tell you about the time he chewed through a wall.])
