As Snowden waits in Moscow

Spying is not new as any sensible person already knows. What is new is the technology which allows the USA to spy on and record every single bit of information passed over the internet by INDIVIDUALS. As Snowden has indicated the US is already using this information ,some from 3rd parties, to harass people.
Example.Say you share an apartment or live in student accommodation or at home and share an IP address and someone is posting anti-American items then this recorded information could be used against you at a point of entry to the USA so bang goes your new job or green card. The amount of information available to the [real] security people at ports etc. was already extensive but now its literally what you had for breakfast last Xmas Eve and more. I am not anti-American BTW if the spooks are reading, just anti-Obama as many many Americans are right now.
