Go ahead, collect my phone records, track my websurfing, analyze my email. I don't give a damn.
I do not write this out of any loyalty to Obama or because I worry about the Terrorist Threat. I simply do not care about my data privacy and never have.
Why should I? My buying habits are ordinary, my emails are pedestrian, my phone calls would bore any spy to tears, my political opinions are very public and published under my own name. As long as no one spams me or steals my identity, why should I care what they do with my data?
