There are certain items that I believe are 'tagged' for data storage.
I'd bet if you bought knives, shovels, guns, rope, duct tape, etc. you
would end up in some FBI database somewhere. Adhesives can be almost
like a fingerprint... I doubt the FBI cares what brand of oatmeal you
are eating, but I'd bet that they have a file on you that shows your
average BiLo grocery costs(are you hoarding) your average electricity
bill(are you growing pot), your average water bill, etc.
The minutiae of your life is stored in separate databases...DISH network
may log your viewing habits in some local database, but that database
can probably be tapped at will by the FBI or CIA or NSA etc. It's the
same with your ISP, your power company, etc.
Just my opinion..
