So you are expected to believe that the "tech companies" are concerned about your privacy? That they didn't know this was going on? Of course they knew! The classified program named “PRISM” began in 2007 and has signed on Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Pal-Talk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, and Apple. The recent NSA revelations have laid it all out: The NSA is watching us online. Its overreaching surveillance is creating a climate of fear, chills free speech, and violates our basic human rights — and it operates without any meaningful oversight.

Americans Right to Privacy has solutions and I am anxious to share them with you. We offer secure, encrypted email, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) which secures your computer's internet connection, to guarantee that all of the data you're sending and receiving is encrypted and secured from prying eyes. 

Switzerland, a country known for its strict data privacy laws, has no back door access to encryption for any government agency, not even Switzerland itself.

Today, regaining your online Privacy means going Abroad

It really is laughable.  CYA, CYA! 


Google and Facebook are the sources for the NSA.

This is laughable. For Zuckerberg to complain about NSA snooping, it's like the kettle calling the pot black (in this case, it's fitting.) I'm more concern what Facebook and Google does with my info than I would with NSA. This whole thing is a farce. I would invite all to see how one artist summed up this semi-faux fury: http://banalityofbanality.com/

@AmericanPrivacy - some of these companies do not want privacy, because their revenue is ad distribution based on what they find out about their users.  As the old cliche claims, "facebook users are not the customers... but the products being sold."


meh.  People want their market capitalism, so they shouldn't complain when the system they want hurts them.

@ahandout - And?  Spying on citizens has been going on for decades, four or five or more with ease.  Easily seven; remember the red scare and all sorts of people being wrongly blacklisted - despite living in a free country that purportedly allowed freedom of individuality and exchange of conversation (free speech)

@hypnotoad72 @ahandout Spying on citizens has ALWAYS been rejected.  But, since Obama is doing it, it is now OK.  Do you realize that the press said the exact same thing you just said as their reason for NOT showing a video of Obama with Bill Ayres at a party?  The NSA under Obama has violated more civil rights of the population than all other administrations in history.


Look up facial recognition software and Corporations and Spying.
