Par for the course

BTW I don't think it matters which political party is in power in regards to this stuff. Both sides want the ability to listen in on everything.

In public both say

• It's to protect the children.

• It's to protect us from terrorists.

Of course the real reason is to increase gummint power. The irony is that the 3-letter agencies listen to Congresscritters just as much as the rest of us.

When you allow agencies to know everything about everyone bad things are going to happen and sooner rather than later.

Nah. I doubt they are listening to members of congress.
