Big Brother to monitor 80% of credit card transactions for our own good

This isn't even the National Security Agency, it's the Consumer Financial "Protection" Board:
A CFPB strategic planning document for fiscal years 2013-17 describes the “markets monitoring” program through which officials aim to monitor 80 percent of all credit card transactions in 2013.

So. All your phone call metadata. Your email and cell phone address books. The content of your email, if it includes keywords. Your web browsing. Any bank transaction over $10,000. And all of your credit card transactions, in any amount. All of your medical information via Obamacare. God only knows what else.
