The government has a file on you

And congressmen want to know why:

In a letter released yesterday, Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) take Attorney General Eric Holder to task. They ask whether the Justice Department believes that the government has the legal authority to a) keep data on citizens who are not suspected of any crime; b) analyze aggregated government databases; and c) change fundamental rules governing surveillance without approval from Congress.

Well, that’s one of the things about the hope and change administration, it’s above the law. And has displayed outright contempt for it numerous times.

    Ive seen the building… professionally, that houses the servers. Think like a shopping mall, looks like a shopping mall, except its filled with racks and racks of running hard drives.

    Heck, this reply is probably eating up space there now.

    Hard drives are a wonderful thing. The file they’d have on me would probably be very thick, but on a hard drive, it would be tiny. They’ll be much less likely to become irate with me for having to drag my file around if they can just bring it up on a laptop. I do kinda wonder what all is in it, though. Just in case it’s in error, you know.
