To all those who say if you're not doing anything illegal you shouldn't be concerned about the NSA spying on you -

I did a friend a favor and picked up some flash cards from someones mailbox and dropped them off in a mailbox across town. I was about to text him saying "I delivered the drugs to the secret location" when I realized how that would look to a NSA snooper, especially if they use keyword searches.
Instead I sent:

I love the picture.  It's the same canned photo of Obama all the news websites use in negative articles.

With reports that NSA employees spied on their GF's and ex's, check out hashtag #NSAPickUpLines on twitter!
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
Iíll be watching you

I just met you
and this is crazy
call any number
Iíll listen baby

Roses are red, violets are blue
your pin # is 6582

I would ask for your number, but I already have it.

You're free Friday. Would you like to have dinner?

You look familiar, have I indexed you before?

"I know exactly where you've been all my life"

You look way prettier in person than through your webcam

"I feel like I've known you since you got that cellphone for your 15th birthday."

We already know everything about you but it's so cute to hear you say it yourself.

I want to ask you to dinner. Could you wear the white top you wore on Skype 2 nights ago?

Judge deals blow to NSA phone data program
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/12/16/judge-deals-nsa-defeat-on-bulk-phone-collection/

Quote: He added: "I cannot imagine a more 'indiscriminate' and 'arbitrary invasion' than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approval. Surely such a program infringes on 'that degree of privacy' that the founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment. Indeed I have little doubt that the author of our Constitution, James Madison, who cautioned us to beware 'the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power,' would be aghast."

I would have supported him if he only leaked these type of things.
Sadly, he also leaked a lot of dangerous stuff.
