    I hope the idiots literally die of boredom spying on me--I'm such a threat to national security. What a bunch of buffoons.

  1. And Good Old "Mr. Change" was right there with the rest of the traitors.

    My disgust is beyond words. I keep trying to find a way to put it all out there without a 4-letter word diatribe, but it's hard.

    Thanks for coming by guys,,yeah Beth they use the security thing just to make it sound good that big brother is watching you.

    My disgust also jolly roger,,you are right on saying it to. We need a candidate that will stand up for the constitution, but it looks as though it ain't gonna happen.

    The telecoms will use this loop-hole awarded to them to get anything to slide buy,,we just got sold out to big business.
