More is not always better. If Govt. had the ability to read every e-mail, listen to every call, intercept every letter and video every action they'd be screwed. How much info already is unnoticed or is not acted on? Good! Swamp 'em send more, speak more walk more. Soon we'll all be employed watching eachother.

They do read E-Mails. One example: AOL stores all the e-mail you delete for a month in case the police need to read it. As with phone tapping, everything is digital, and easily recorded and archived. (You only need 8Khz, Mono, and with MP3 compression, an hour can be compressed into a small file.) As with buying over the web, don't even try. VeriSign released a technology to allows the government to EASILY - (Get a court order, and TYPE-IN-THE-PASSWORD) access a database of all your 'secure transactions'. In fact, companies will be fined $10,000 if they can't fork-over the information this database collects it the government asks for it.

Oh, and video... When was the last time you went anywhere and you KNEW you weren't being watched. (Besides your own house.)

All AOL communications are routed thru CIA HQ in Langley VA, and have been since the mid 1990s.

Not a problem. The problem is when you start watching Big Brother!

You cannot conquer Ireland. You cannot extinguish
the Irish passion for freedom. If our deed has not
been sufficient to win freedom, then our children
will win it by a better deed.

You guys don't realize the real enemy is not "The State" - it's Hollywood. Fvcks with your ability to think straight....

There's a big difference between "watching you" and *randomly* cataloging various actions / transactions of yours, in case they need to look at it some day because they suspect you of a crime. In other words, I don't think there are people that are hired to read our everyday emails and watch our everyday movements at the mall and local PO. More like, if something bad happens, and they suspect you of being involved in the crime, they go back and say "OK, Joe Blow lives here...pull his phone records for the last two weeks and see if there's any footage of him at this retail location, this bank, blah blah blah."

No one is sitting in the basement of the Pentagon sending out dispatches to Tom Ridge and John Ashcroft saying "Alert! Citizen 1,202,343 is acting suspiciously - twice as many emails as normal today...please advise!"

She's good looking,but I made the mistake of getting involved with her-I'm not in love with her,but now there is always friction when I bring girls home,because she can hear everything that is going on,and they usually sense that there is something going on between me and my upstairs neighbor.
