Feds tracking credit cards, store purchases without warrant: report | Raw Story
I don't care if they track my credit cards. I also wouldn't mind if they paid the balance off on the 1st day of every month.
But on the surface it passes the Constitution check.
All those purchases are made in the open, where anyone can see, so the right to privacy is out. And we don't have any ground to stand on to say otherwise, b/c gun purchases are tracked.
Law of unintended consequinces?
Wrong. Commerce is between me and who I buy from, not the government. The credit card companies tell us they have ultra secure encryption for the transactions. Apparently that's all bullshit?
Anyway you know how it goes. If the government can't track your spending, the terrorists win.
Pay cash. Problem solved.
I agree with you morally.
Legally, you did it out in the public place, therefore there is no right to privacy. Unless they get your CC numbers, then thats a breach of privacy.
How else could they track your CC activity?
Name and a partial number, just like receipts are printed. Try searching for yourself with limited info, you will be shocked how easy it is to track yourself though most of you adult life.
Separate names with a comma.
