Can you say NSA? I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable about privacy living in the country that invented Echelon.
There is no reason to assume the US Government doesn't also have this kind of database somewhere, I mean do you really think they spy on the rest of the world without doing it at home as well? They are horribly paranoid about terrorism, and that kind of databasing is a typical reaction to it.
I mean really, they're working on *schools* profiling students looking for violent ones for god sakes, do you really think the government isn't already doing it?
