    We are like a frog in water. The heat is being slowly turned up. If we do not wake up one day it will be to late if it is not already.

    I don't even believe that 911 happened exactly the way they have told us over and over again. there are just too many facts that go against what they say. laws of physics that just prove them wrong. but that is just a whole other topic.

    Sigh...

    yeah, I have an opinion but you wouldn't like it.

    My only comment remains this. If your wife, son, daughter, husband, brother, mother, father or any significant other ends up dead from a 911-style event and you learn, truthfully, that it would have been avoidable through "eavesdropping"; will you bury your loved one(s) and say, "Goodbye my love, at least they weren't listening to my phone calls."? If your answer is yes, then you have the strength of your convictions and the solace of your principles. But, if you hesitate or say No, then may God help you continue living. Give things like this serious reflection and contemplation.
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

    Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    Eavesdropping would be listening in on a converstion between 2 Americans, both of which are within our borders. This addresses intelligence gathering with one end of the conversation being overseas to/from a suspected terrorist.

    As far as the immunity for the telecom companies -- Why should they be subject to a lawsuit when they are simply working with the government performing a legal function.

    Of course, protecting the rights of lawyers to get rich is an important agenda item -- need to keep them rich so they can make the campaign contributions.

    Also, suing the telecom companies makes as much sense as suing the firearms manufacturers. How many of you agree with those suits?

    No matter how many times it is repeated, this is not "domestic wiretapping". It is legitimate intelligence gathering for the purpose of protecting us from the terrorists -- you know, those folks that have sworn to kill us.

    I am not stupid but for the life of me I cannot come up with one bit of freedom I have lost.

    The problem is that I do not see the situation as temporary. If you do, then we can agree to disagree and let time tell which is right.

    I am not sure how temporary or long term the Islamic problem will be. I suspect until Christ returns and although I am concerned about the potential of an attack I am more concerned about A Federal Government that would use any excuse as a pretext to attacking one of my freedoms/rights. Remember once a law is passed that strips us of one of our rights the odds of ever getting it reversed is slim and none.

    So we agree

    to disagree. Terrorism is going to be with us forever. Nothing we do in the ME or anywhere else will solve it. The world, simply, has changed. As I said though, time will tell who is right on this. We each know what we know.
