Your e-mails: The government and your phone records

CNN.com asked users for their reaction to Thursday's USA Today report that the National Security Agency, with the cooperation of three telecommunication companies, has compiled a database of millions of domestic phone calls. Here is a sampling from the responses, some of which have been edited:
I am appalled by this new information. It is an insult to the right of every American to protect one's privacy. It insults our Congress that the reason they were not informed is because they cannot be trusted with the information. I am disgusted that some of the large telephone companies would agree to this conspiracy. I think this behavior is an impeachable offence. I cannot express the rage I feel at this new way to monitor the American people. Karen Berlant-Solomon, Van Nuys, California........Click title for the rest of the e-mails.......

I definitely don't agree with it, however; I also think it has been going on for longer than we think, but now is just coming out of the woodworks.

our freedoms and liberties must be protected....the school of thought which says "if you don't have anything to hide,who cares?" is archaic thinking.....the fact of the matter is many of us have nothing to hide but wish to protect the constitution and our civil liberties....many loopholes and so on were addressed with the patriot act,perhaps overzealously,but in any event,law enforcement should follow policies and procedures...i.e see a magistrate and get warrants and paperwork .....

This problem is bigger than people think. Ok I agree with Sara. It has been going on longer than we know. This is like a camp fire that was contain within rocks. Now congress took the rocks away. That fire is soon to burn our forest of rights.
