OK folks. it's out there. Every call you make, everything you do online is archived and now lawyers are demanding access.

" The National Security Agency has spent years demanding that companies turn over their data. Now, the spy agency finds the shoe is on the other foot. A defendant in a Florida murder trial says telephone records collected by the NSA as part of its surveillance programs hold evidence that would help prove his innocence, and his lawyer has demanded that prosecutors produce those records. On Wednesday, the federal government filed a motion saying it would refuse, citing national security. But experts say the novel legal argument could encourage other lawyers to fight for access to the newly disclosed NSA surveillance database."

Lawyers eye NSA data as treasure trove for evidence in murder, divorce cases - Red Tape

At this point they may as well make it all public. Frankly, I would mind at all knowing the who and where of the schmucks that keep spamming my phone.

A government attempt to make me relevant. It will fail.
