Welcome to Obama's National Security State

Government electronic and other snooping has increased markedly since that fateful day in 2001. The new face of Big Brother should perhaps be termed "The National Security State" rather than just a "Police State." Anyone who thought Obama would bring change in the government approach will be sadly mistaken. The web has gotten markedly broaders since Obama took over. (Also, remember his promise to close Gitmo?) This AP article provides an overview.

  1. Like you, I still remember the days of telephone party lines. That's when things were hardwired, not transmitted over the airwaves. Speaking of radio, there was no expectation of privacy. That's why confidential material was either coded or, with the latest gizmos, scrambled. That was the real world back then. Before today's cheesy new found rights became vogue. If there's information that I wish to keep private, it's going by snail mail. For the immediate stuff, two cans connected by a string will do.
