      That I have nothing to fear?
      That these shenanigans are perfectly legal?

      The facts are alarmingly simple,

      The NSA has been sweeping up metadata from all digital electronic voice and data communications made by American citizens on American soil without any suspicion of wrongdoing and without a warrant. The NSA then stores this metadata in huge servers containing enough data that if it were printed out on letter size paper and stacked it would go round trip from the Earth to the Moon several thousand times.  

      So what do they do with this data? Am I supposed to believe that nothing is done with it? That it is being stored for posterity?

      If you believe that, then ..................
