Now -- that they were being go we can all get our lives back and not so happy we're being.
Just as scrutinized as we do so it's -- -- Look at whether Scott McNealy was right -- the legendary Sun Microsystems co-founder of famously said if you want your privacy get over was he right.
To Katrina two years.
And Ralph Peters Katrina and what event.
Well now I don't think that he's right -- I do think however we are at a critical point in our nation's history where we are going to have to make a decision.
If we are going to remain free or not.
Because this administration has admittedly said they can't let a good crisis go to waste so I suspect we'll probably get background checks on pressure -- moving forward.
Leaving that aside do you think that the cameras and the other high technologies we use today -- From drones.
Sooner those pressure -- on the road.
Are fair game and will be fair game and will be sold -- the American people to keep you alive it's well worth it.
Well they're different kinds of technology for different purposes summer good some -- -- -- applied.
I personally am very very glad we have surveillance AT&T deters crime -- my wife's safe.
I'm very glad we have a surveillance and Boston and -- on the other hand the American people while we whine about all of the government's.
Taking pictures unless we get on the line we're human.
Reveal not just our souls but often our bodies.
Google from any online shopping site is -- the search engines even here you're in the local grocery store get a customer loyalty card.
They all know more about you have more data valued.
-- the federal government so I think.
You -- recognize not everything's a conspiracy I'm all for reasonable steps to keep us safer.
I'm you know meant.
As a manageable -- Chilean guys.
Suspect hiding in the boat that thermal imaging technology.
Not only the ability to see him.
But it could just hear right over -- the house -- -- in that house so -- wanted to -- not in this case that the goal was to find out this guy.
But just knowing they have that ability makes me wonder about the rest of us.
Well there's actually Supreme Court case couple years back about using thermal imaging randomly on the street to sail back guys from pot in there and it was thrown out you can't just use this Willy Nilly.
It violates the Fourth Amendment under the guise of fighting -- you -- well if you're searching for suspect and then that changes everything and what have you discovered something bad to your -- case comes up that's more involved -- just -- It's hard to detect from a camera to be pretty random event to see suddenly -- -- guys packing pressure cooker with.
Ball bearing on this thing violence some guys getting in a violent arguments life is that he's not hitting her Rasheed -- -- -- -- -- -- that -- -- -- -- -- -- -- here.
And you shouldn't fear -- and and that kind of pan out to consummate that we should fear right now mean.
Think about this since I was born this been about 50000 wiretaps right approved.
By -- asked for by law enforcement every year of last couple years more than one point five million requests have been made by law enforcement.
-- to technology companies phones and Internet and connectivity and -- kind of thing.
-- without us knowing about it we can't find out who did it so.
There has been a game change over the last ten years five years since 9/11.
Where the pendulum has swung way in the direction of the government actually knowing -- held a lot more about you than they used to know about you that is troubling we do need to watch out for that particularly in the wake of events like.
-- is out of the bottle and I think to the colonel's point whether government inspired or not Katrina.
The fact of the matter is and we hop -- these web sites and we allow ourselves to be an open book.
The via the rewards program on American Express visa whatever.
Did we open our books I'm just saying well and we.
Ask -- O'Neal though.
We have the rights to do that as an individual if I wanna put my entire life out -- great -- guess what.
I can block my cousin and I can block my friend from FaceBook and everybody else for that matter but to Matt's point.
People don't know the kind information that as being compiled from having your grandmother's gonna marriage and being -- our website let the government -- overstep your block it.
The government has overstepped my -- I'm sure.
But that's the point is we are at a critical -- in America over the people are gonna have to say enough is enough and take back our liberties because we have.
-- not only with that notion -- to yours.
It is the carefully -- you know liberties are one thing but every time we have something bad happened like 9/11 -- I think for a lot of folks I don't think it justifies a vote for a lot of them it's not hopefuls.
They stepped back -- -- and I -- compromise here I can I can get some of this up.
Let's keep keep me sixty my -- And that but justified.
Worries and well look life is always -- are compromises.
And technology -- can be used for good or bad ends.
My problem is the notion that so many people seem to have the government is how to get them.
Look at government is made up of average citizens like like us familiar way above average.
You know I've never I'm working to remember military there's no secret plot to get everybody in corners and.
Come with a black artists it is never watched Oliver Stone movie so you ought to get up to speed and study things like espionage.
And becoming you know like an expert on matters well no actually I had -- similar to the American intelligence but -- -- -- Sears point is this that.
Be careful what you wish for a little bit of technology I'm not saying the government is on -- hunt for you but I'm saying if you become a suspect.
It is a lot to gather and as per -- together.
But if I Obey the law and keep my clothes on in public.
What I would have to fear from these cameras but how you are on up to speculate or wrongly you criticize -- our administration.
And they just say let's see -- we can do too embarrassed to come.
Well and I would not put that past various administrations but in have like you have something of a public figure.
But I think you look at the other way the fact that we have these technologies makes it less -- Then in the past that I would be falsely accused of these accusations sustained but it's how we use of technology.
It again go back my basic point -- How the government isn't restricted by law from what it can collect and -- on US citizens.
I don't president Lula is internal -- -- map and that's where -- they've broken up along here and they do.
Energy security justification is in a way I mean think about last the last couple weeks for everyone says the Second Amendment is something that we should take so seriously and we shouldn't allow even a little bit of an encroachment there because we're very protective rightly so -- -- -- let's get asked protective.
About the fourth amendment's.
And realize that when they are you know when they're asking us to live according to -- code if you have nothing to fear.
He'll do any wrong you have nothing to fear there's something fundamentally creepy.
And fundamentally un American about that notion.
What you don't all right -- I think your point was there's not a deliberate attempt on the part of the -- go after you.
But I do think we're making it easier for them to do just that armed -- We are but look you know I've got -- experience in seventy countries around the world I've lived in Europe.
For more than ten years in Europe was more regulated and supervised through years ago -- America is today.
And I would just tell you.
Contrary to all the that can have known since this is still -- free us this is still the freest country on earth.
What I have the most ability to make the choice is good or bad and I will tell you I'm concerned that people are making bad choices voluntarily.
Well by putting information out there are you might have been all over the world but I didn't it to the Poconos in the Catskills and it's a growing threat colonel.
Bombs SuSE guys I want to thank you all in the meantime I know.
