    problem at all. All you need is enough storage and a big enough pipe running to that storage. The NSA could easily do that despite what a lot of people want to say. Storage scales easily. Sorting it wouldn't have to be that hard either. The internet is basically a giant sorting mechanism, everything they need is there already. And given the number of people who have access to this info it breaks down to about 3-600 people in the country per person working for the NSA. Watching the activity of that many people with the help of sorting software wouldn't be terribly difficult. I'd bet they could use a sorting algorithm similar to what facebook uses.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
