The New USA Freedom Act: A Step in the Right Direction, but More Must Be Done

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/0...e-must-be-done

Quote:
A bipartisan group of congressional leaders has reintroduced the USA Freedom Act. The bill is an attempt to rein in the intelligence community's "Collect It All" strategy, and passing USA Freedom is a first, small step in the right direction. However, it has serious faults that should be addressed.

Last year, the Senate failed to advance a somewhat different, stronger USA Freedom Act by two votes. We supported the bill because it reformed the secret court overseeing the spying and ended the bulk collection of calling records. The bill introduced this week is not as robust as last year's bill, but it still successfully accomplishes both of these goals.

Ending Bulk Collection

Similar to last year's bill, the new USA Freedom Act attempts to end the bulk collection of calling records under Section 215 of the Patriot Act by limiting collection to instances where there is "reasonable, articulable suspicion" that a "specific selection term" used to request call detail records is associated with international terrorism. The government must use a specific selection term, which represents an "individual, account, or personal device."
Thoughts?

In light of the fact that the first bill didn't pass, you guys should be gravely concerned.
They're effectively telling you that freedom and privacy are against the law.

Interesting.
History has taught those of us who listen, that giving up freedom for safety doesn't work. You can never be 100% safe.
Any one of us can be snuffed out, in an instant, by 2 nutcases at a Texas cartoon contest or 2 nutcases at the Boston marathon or a nutcase copilot on a suicide mission.
News Flash: There's ALWAYS going to be nutcases in the world.
Yet, there's no shortage of folks who will throw away their freedoms with both hands for the illusion of safety.
Not to worry, though.
There are still some brave men and women who will NOT cower, but will fight for their freedoms and the freedoms of others.

"Distrust and caution are the parents of security." - Benjamin Franklin

The sooner the American public learns a healthy distrust of its government, the more secure it will be.
Your government obviously doesn't trust you. They spy on you.
Why on earth would anyone trust them? It boggles the mind.

Unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans...

http://nypost.com/2015/07/18/obama-h...race-database/

A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”

Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.
