Those who would give up liberty for security will get nor deserve either. – Benjamin Franklin
One of the dumbest things anyone can say or think: “I’m not worried. I’m not doing anything bad.” You (and I) don’t get to decide what’s bad or not. That’s Big Brother’s prerogative, and he may have very different ideas about it indeed. From a blog from someone who knows that went rather viral a couple of months ago:We Should All Have Something To Hidehttp://tinyurl.com/qzbxmnsIt’s almost impossible to keep anything hidden anymore. But as recent WikiLeaks et al. revelations have shown, that is as much of a problem for Big Uncle as it is for the rest of us.
Big Brother isn’t watching you—he’s*spying* on you. Uh oh! I shouldn’t have said that. Now they’ll come after me! Goodby . . .

The latest controversial local news story is that the local city government set the yellow lights to be on shorter so the red light cameras will catch more people going through red lights.There is already a 41% increase in rear end collisions and a resulting increase in insurance premiums.
Because you were there, right?You ignore the point to attempt to correct. Must be a Lib.
Finish the comment: “…don’t anything to worry about. We’ll still arrest and imprison you when we get around to it!”
“Yup, the multinational corporations want you economically stressed with no safety net so you’re thankful to have any rat $#!+ job and be a good wage slave like in China, Singapore, Vietnam, and India! Heaven forbid you wanting to be like Europe! Socialist Commies!”
Oh, WELL SAID! That’s exactly it, in a nutshell!
“Wrong, as usual.”
How so? The surveillance was instituted by GWB – your guy, I believe. Not a Dem, not even a nominal one.
the argument of “if you are innocent, why do you care?” is wrong these days with super cop who use military type actions They will find something or plant something on you if they want.
Current “spying” technology would have been J. Edgar Hoover’s wet dream!! C’mon folks! While “liberals” have been guilty of “big brohterism” with regard to altruism and taking care of others (like Jesus taught), it’s “conservatives”, like Hoover, and “good Christians”, who’ve been invading privacy, like in you BEDROOM!
It’s also the fundamentalist, religious “conservatives” who’ve long, like for several thousand years, been dictating some pretty ridiculous, and invasive, “moral laws”, as in read the laws Moses handed down, HUNDREDS OF THEM, all what we’d consider, if thinking rationally, invasion of privacy, and “private behaviors”. But not to worry, the priesthood then, like “Rocks” example of the money-making tricks with the yellow lights, that have made pretty good profits for “the lawmakers”, and the more conservative they are, the more they worship with the moneychangers, that well, Jesus condemned!
Haven’t done anything wrong? Remember Jimmie Carter’s grief suffered over the statement in the Playboy interview? Yep, they want to bug you to see if you “lust in your heart”, and that is NOT a “liberal” perspective!
I could not care less who is listening to my boring phone calls. But I do want them to hear the communications between of those who do things like BOSTON.
Sadly Europe wants to be like US and destroying the benefits with almost free healthcare and good unemployment support. At least I got my bachelor degree for free :) We´ll see when they destroy that possibility too. Of course, there are more taxes, but unless you have really good pay, you benefit from it anyway.
