Here are my first questions:
Once in L.A., where they could be seen and examined in person by (supposedly) trained individuals whose intent it is to keep America
How far and deep does this power go? Twitter is a public forum, and it is disturbing enough that our government is trolling it looking for the boogie-man, but what about other forums? Do they read the email of people planning on coming to this country? One of my best friends in the world in English, and I hope that he makes his way back here sometime soon. If he were to do that I am quite sure that, given our previous history, there would be a generous application of alcohol and stupid antics would ensue (though we are not as young as we used to be). Now, if he sent me an email saying “prepare yourself, for I am coming back to lay waste to America” would that trigger some sort of snooping program? Would he be investigated, searched, detained and eventually denied access to the country?
