Got Ya (Cel Phone) Number! Friday's Quote

"… Where liberals once screamed foul that George Bush ordered the monitoring of phone calls going in to and going out of the US from, or to, known or suspected terrorists and phone companies who participated in that measure should be tarred and feathered… [to] when Obama says Americans should have 'no reasonable expectation of privacy' and it is decided their 'Fourth Amendment rights are not violated when a phone company reveals to the government its own records' ... is fine and dandy and is met with silence…
"My, what a difference a “historic” and “unprecidented” presidency makes."     Erick Erickson


  1. Hi Terro .. I find politics quite difficult to talk about .. because there is so much and things are 'so different' by cultures within different countries. Loss of personal information is interesting - we give so much away .. just being here! Let alone ..there, there, there!! Enjoy today -

  2. Hi Hilary,
    You have so many wonderful and inspirational stories on your blog ( politics has taken a back seat. You can likely be thankful for that!

    I guess civil liberty and personal freedom are political issues, but I think of them more deeply as issues that can affect and change our lives and those of our children and grandchildren for better or worse. It's the nature of governments to be more powerful and intrusive in private lives today, and I think people need to be aware and speak up to power. It's unfortunate that so many of the changes never appear on a ballot, but are accomplished within the bureaucracy out of sight of the common citizen.
