CHS 85Thousands of jobs?? May I ask where? I've been looking
online and cannot locate a site that is publishing any work available at this
new facility. My suspicion is that, like Obamacare information sites, a lot of
the workers are being brought in from out of state. My thinking as to why this
facility was put in Utah is because the planners figuered that Utah being a very
pro military type place, there would not be much protest to the NSA having a
facility here. And there probably wouldn't have been except for the Obama
administration revelations that have come out recently. Imagine if they had
tried to put this site in the San Francisco Bay Area? Protests and road
closures daily from the left.
I have yet to read from anyone who has had "Fourth Amendment" issues
because of any information that the government has in their data system. How
come it isn't a fourth amendment issue in reference to all the data that
Facebook or Google or Amazon has on their data systems. What do you have to hide
that is of such concern? If by gathering meta data the government can prevent
one death then I'm sorry but your privacy is worth that. Does anyone who
has commented on this even understand what meta data is? How many of you throw
away all the credit card offers that you receive? More data is extracted from
your trash than ever will be extracted from the NAS unless you really do have
something to hide. Mr Rock. You can bet that the data at the new NSA center is
not stored only in one location. I would hope it is stored in at least three
"With the Utah Data Center, our “abundant availability of low-cost
power” has brought billions of dollars of investment, thousands of jobs,
and millions in ongoing revenues to our state.The Utah Data Center is a
dramatic example of the direct, tangible benefits which Utah’s energy
supplies bring to our state – but it is hardly the only example."- Gary Herbert, Utah's Competitive Advantage website.When asked about the Data Center in 2009 by KSL, Jason Chaffetz said
"It's a benefit to our economy and our national security." To all my conservative friends, remember that when they come up for
reelection. Jobs and money are more important than liberty and freedom.
The meaning of the phrase "We will be watching out for you" takes on a
whole new meaning.
But, is George Orwell laughing or crying?
So comforting to know that my personal data will be stored so safely.All
of us must have our data accessible to hackers for eternity.We all know
that government employees are 100% trustworthy and would never leak information
like they did with Joe The Plumber. They would never use this information for
political purposes, only the IRS does that against the TEA Party.( I
guess I should not have said that because they know who I am and will be reading
I think if the Government could mind their own business, they won't be
And to think that ancient Israel was forbidden by the Lord to even do a census.
How far our country has degraded from its original founding and noble ideals!
Utah is the home of Big Brother. The government is spending billions upon
billions to spy on Americans:A) It will get out of control, and be
used for ill purposes, like the IRS abusing their power recentlyB)
All that data in one place just makes it easy for our enemies to locate what
they want and hack it. Everything, EVERYTHING is hackable.
