hey there ANC

i have no problems either with intellegence gathering, but i really think a court order should be obtained to keep the balance of powers in check ... there are even provisions to wiretap and then get the order 3 days later ... i just hate to see any branch of the government, regardless of which party is in power, have too much carte blanche

ho ho ho, have a happy

(i bet they've taped my 900 tijuana donkey show phone calls too ... )

such a bargain at $0.69/minute.. my last bill came to $0.26

ah back to the topic.

I am not surprised by this and I have a feeling feel that this has been going on for years, decades but the new nifty technology does make things more interesting, not that anything that goes on here would garner any attention
