"Patriotic" companies

This story on "Patriotic" companies forget that once upon a time it could be said that: real Americans question authority".

It seems "trusted partners" have been outing a lot of information without due process or even a good reason. It's a scary article, describing even more than Snowden released.

yes, and the legal structure which encourages government coercion without due process is particularly terrifying.

And here's an example of why I object far less to the panopticon when its use is open and available to everyone: "A traffic warden from Telford who lied about being run over by a driver after he gave him a ticket for parking in a disabled space was today jailed for four months..." when the CCTV footage showed otherwise.
