Just hours after actor John Cusack declared it “sick” that there are progressives defending the NSA and its surveillance programs, Mia Farrow stepped forward and urged Americans to “chill.” After all, credit card companies have been collecting personal data for years. Plenty of followers were quick to point out a crucial error in that analogy, though: citizens make the choice to sign up for and use a credit card.

One more reason to chill: Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who recently apologized for lying to Congress about NSA surveillance, has been appointed to oversee the formation of an “independent” review board.

What difference, at this point, does it make what information the NSA is collecting or what the agency is doing with it? But consider just how quickly evil capitalist corporation American Express acted on the information it collected from Twitter. Creepy, huh?
