Where Does the Government Store All Your Information? We Found the Answer

So many NJ residents are upset over the report that the the government is compiling a huge “big brother” database to track your movements through your vehicle’s license plate.   But as Jim mentioned this morning, if the government is storing all this information on us, where and how are they storing it?

We did a little research and according to the NSA’s own website, the federal government is storing all the information they are compiling on us in a brand new data facility in Utah.

According to Wikipedia:

The planned structure is 1 million or 1.5 million square feet,[14][15][16] 100,000 square feet of data center space and greater than 900,000 square feet of technical support and administrative space,[4][14] and it is projected to cost from $1.5 billion[17][18][2] to $2 billion when finished in September 2013.[4][14] One report suggested that it will cost another $2 billion for hardware, software, and maintenance.[14] The completed facility is expected to require 65 megawatts, costing about $40 million per year.[4][14]

Here are a couple of photos of the new data center:
