As more Americans realize that the solution to their economic problems is to dump the privately owned Federal Reserve, the Fed will start monitoring Americans directly.
Recently the Fed put out an “RFP” (request for proposal) to solicit software solutions that will create a “Social Media Listening Platform” whose function is to “gather data from various social media outlets and news sources.” The system will “monitor billions of conversations and generate text analytics based on predefined criteria.”
The Fed wants to monitor everyone who mentions the word “Fed” or “Federal Reserve” in Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Forums, YouTube, and so on. And once the Internet is completely “transparent” the Fed will focus on telephone conversations, and finally bug each and every “private” location in the world. Because very soon saying that “printing money is treason” will be treason, and such terrorist thoughts must be pre-crimed before they can occur.

And check out this article. Not only are multiple branches of the government (plus the ADL, and soon trhe Federal Reserve) spying on you; more and more private companies are as well.
Hank Asher — a pot-bellied professional voyeur of Boca Raton FL — runs “TLO,” a service that offers trillions of records on individuals and businesses from about 100,000 sources of data. Lawyers, police departments, debt collectors, and others use the system to find you, your friends, your employers, your co-workers, your education history, your web surfing habits, your mobile-phone numbers, liens, car titles, and much more.
Even scraps of data can lead to an information trove. Feed TLO an age range, a first name, and a few Zip Codes, for instance, and it’ll spit out a list of people that fit all the attributes. It also grabs the public information posted on social-media sites like Facebook.
TLO is faster, more accurate, and more thorough than any of his previous efforts, says Asher, who has started two prior data-fusion companies: Database Technologies, which ChoicePoint bought for $462 million in 2000, and Seisint, sold to Reed Elsevier’s LexisNexis unit for $775 million in 2004.
TLO has “100 times the power that I had with my last previous invention,” Asher boasts.
His company has 200 employees and gives a 30-day free trial, and then charges its 17,700 private subscribers 25¢ for a simple search and up to $5 for advanced ones.
Police and government subscribers use the service for free. This includes almost 88,000 investigators and prosecutors in 50 states and 39 countries, according to Mr. Asher.
Asher’s previous products were regularly used by law enforcement to find suspects. In 2003 Asher demonstrated Matrix, a database tool from Seisint, for Vice-President Dick Cheney. Afterward, the Homeland Security Dept. gave Asher $8 million to continue developing Matrix.
Naturally there is extreme potential for abuse and for cases of mistaken identity that will cause police SWAT teams to smash down the doors of innocent citizens and storm into their bedrooms with guns drawn. However this is the price of liberty.
Regarding Asher’s earlier project called Matrix, a 2004 American Civil Liberties Union report called it a “body blow to the core American principle that the government will leave people alone unless it has good reason to suspect them of wrongdoing.” Asher countered that Matrix simply made it easier for the government and debt collectors to search information that was already available.
Asher’s company stores information on you in massive computer servers that occupy 143,000 square feet (which is almost 3.5 acres).
