Well, golly gee folks, this is just what the doctor ordered - - - EVERYONE gets their cell phones hacked
/ recorded / tracked. Just imagine what this process would have on the communications within the
Washington circle ! ! !
Let's see - delivery of meth, coke, crack, oxy, "escorts", etc - and SUDDENLY all the 'players' in the
political arena get their dirty laundry spread across the front page. I was going to add pot, but that is
apparently legal in DC nowadays.
Where, and when, did the concept of 'sunset' laws disappear from the agenda - wherein all laws had
to be re-approved periodically, or were deleted from the judicial books. Times change, attitudes change,
morals change, and yet - we are still burdened with laws on the books that SHOULD make you laugh (gay
rights, abortion, vulgar language in public, etc, etc, etc), except that they are STILL ON THE BOOKS,
and you can STILL be prosecuted.
Please, oh please, remove the free pass that legislator's get by NOT being liable or prosecutable for
their actions under the cover of 'public office exemptions'. Even sitting heads of state have, in recent
times, been held responsible for illegal actions - as in war crimes situations - - - so why should our
legislative representatives be allowed to get away with 'exempting' themselves from laws that they are
passing that make their same actions a CRIME if committed by 'joe blow' - a common soul - merely trying
to exercise his/her right to the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness within their own homes in this
country - home of the brave and free, and cowed by legislation that intrudes into their own bedrooms?
Hell, it's no wonder that the radicalized factions and population sub-segments are taking it upon
themselves to 'act out' in the most horrible and unthinkably bloodthirsty ways - when they have no
effective input into the actual day-to-day rights embedded in our constitution.
Sorry, but this issue struck a nerve - seeing as how a high school friend of mine went to federal lockup
for TWENTY YEARS for having TWO SEEDS of marijuana in his glove box.
Life in the US has really turned into a '1984' balls-up scenario - - - only thing is, and it really
sucks because it still IS the best, is that it beats anywhere else in the world to live (as long as you
can hide your minor vices and issues from the jackbooted badges).
OK, so this gets me flagged as a 'no fly' asshole, but big deal. I'm a disabled veteran that can't handle the
hour(s) long delay involved in just getting ON a plane due to the pain from my back and knees
(service-connected disabilities). At least I don't have to be forced to undergo a strip-down, cavity-inspection,
just because I have the balls to speak my mind!
On the other hand, I carry a letter from my VA doctors explaining the need for my pain medications so that,
JUST IN CASE I get rousted in the middle of the night and tossed into the clink, I don't have to endure any
additional pain and hardship fostered on me by the 'powers that be' because they think I am a threat to
national security - - - or should I say, a threat to their justification to be total dick-wads hiding behind a
badge - who enjoy lording it over the 'people' of this once great country.
