We get "creeped out" when our government uses data collected electronically by business -- information and data that are used to protect our nation and all our people.

Big Brother? No. Big Business! Pontificating gloom, doom and fear.
Chaos is historically very profitable for many businesses. It always helps politicians politically at election time.
Is this Internet owned by our government or is it corporate-owned? Are all "hackers" government agents?
I trust in the people -- those who elected President Barack Obama twice!
