This lovely little interactive tool was culled from TomPaine.com. It was developed by the students of the Medill School of Journalism of Northwestern University. Just click on the bottom question and it will roll up to the next question..the government culls data on us from a whole lotta places..wonderful isn't it?
And you thought you were just a citizen...NOT!
Some of the ways our information is obtained and stored are:
Student loan application..even if you didn't get one..they keep your info
Large deposits or withdrawls from your bank
Have you ever gotten a parking ticket? Well the Homeland Security boys know about you then.
Does your neighbor hate you and think your a terrorist? the FBI encourages this type of thinking with their online TIP website.
Good stuff folks..our tax dollars at work..keeping track of all citizens under the banner of keeping us safe.
