GOVT Plugged Directly Into U.S. Internet Companies

The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time, reports The WashingtonPost..

The highly classified program, code-named PRISM, has not been disclosed publicly before. Its establishment in 2007 and six years of exponential growth took place beneath the surface of a roiling debate over the boundaries of surveillance and privacy. Even late last year, when critics of the foreign intelligence statute argued for changes, the only members of Congress who know about PRISM were bound by oaths of office to hold their tongues.

Taylor Swift Boyfriend Qualifications List

Taylor Swift sounds like she has a list of qualifications a potential boyfriend has to meet, in order to score a chance with dating Swift, according to her recent interview in Vogue Magazine.

English: Taylor Swift at the 2010 Time 100.

Before you read about being her potential boyfriend, know that you will probably end up in one of her hateful songs. She says her new album is going to be about getting heartbroken again! Swift says, “There’s just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak, and that will turn out to be what the next album is about.”

In the Vogue interview, she also says she’s weary of guys liking her because she’s super famous, saying, “That’s maybe something to be aware of. That will fade fast. You can’t be in love with a Google search.”

She then explains that she has security to keep stalker dudes away, sayin, “I don’t have security to make myself look cool, or like I have an entourage,” she explains.”I have security because there’s a file of stalkers who want to take me home and chain me to a pipe in their basement.”

Lastly, she says what ever guy she gets with, better be fine with the excessive spotlight she deals with everywhere she goes, saying, “If you care about privacy to the point where we need to dig a tunnel under this restaurant so that we can leave? I can’t do that.”

The girl knows what she wants at 22! Okay!
