I see where the British intelligence agencies say that they can legally intercept communications made on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. I have to admit, seeing whats going on in Iraq, that hotbed of death, makes me think well, okay, I guess its needed. And I've never been a fair of the classic Those who would give up.....quote. Still, this attitude scares me. I see it here, too, with those liars and sneaks at the NSA. (We're not spying on Americans. Well, okay, we are, but not intentionally. Well, okay, yeah, but we throw the unneeded stuff away. Well, okay, we don't exactly throw it away....)
Short of donating to the Democrats, which I do, or to radical organizations, which I don't (and I include the ACLU in that; they do good, but they aren't very focused) -- I don't see what I can do. I'm not one for marching on government offices, either, which is probably just the way they like it.
Obama's really depressing me, I'll tell you that. He's starting to make Bush look good. And I feel the gorge rising in my throat when I think that.
