Are we forgetting that the folks who are in “GOVERNMENT!” are us?
They are the people we elected. They are the bureaucrats who met the standards to be hired and retained even when political parties change power. They are lawfully selected appointees. They are our Supreme Court. They are the volunteers, men and women, who volunteered to serve their country.
We all knew that MANY BILLIONS of $’s were being spent on something to stop another 911, or worse, or less. I, for one, was hoping “The Government” was monitoring communication in a way to keep us safe.
I remember thinking, “I hope ‘someone’ is helping those Contras against the Nicaraguan Communists”, and there was, Ollie North, God bless him. That’s when the liberals had there day, and the liberals went “overboard”.
And, I suspect the louder the rant about “privacy rights”, the more that person and his/her friends have to hide. Sure the porn watchers, pedophiles, terrorists, radicals, crime figures and their ilk want PRIVACY.
Of course they do. It is the far left who has no problem with Benedict Snowden’s “freedom tour” to China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, and probably Syria, Iran, and Korea. I hope he gets a long stay in Kim Jung Un’s “country club with barbed wired”. In the interest of civility, I will leave out what I think should be done with Mr. Snowden. But, he is a confessed felon fleeing justice.
We participate in a government by assuming some responsibilities, honoring others’ views and rights, and YES, giving up some of our privileges or rights out of respect and common sense. Boy did that recorded TEA PARTY caller get an earful from Burt. What a way to make a living. Too bad he was just a recording. And he woke my wife up from her nap!
The post script to this rant is the call we just got at robot call for “free” ‘I have fallen and cannot get up’ buttons. My friend Linda, @ 40 years old, says she got the call incessantly while she was recovering from surgery at home. She is “mad as hell too.”
