Idle ramblings of an idle mind
The audience is listening
If you have friends or business contacts in countries that may harbor terrorists, you may safely assume that the FBI and/or other federal law enforcement agencies are listening to your phone calls with them.

Because they are.

This is what the PATRIOT Act has wrought. And this is why folks like Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton, despite whatever other good intentions and accomplishments they possess, have a stain upon their very souls.

Aw, fuck, I hadn't, until now, consciously realized that Joe Biden was among the crowd that voted the PATRIOT act into law.

This is a problem, because I sorta had made a vow to never vote for one of those fuckers.

Yet, I'd intended to vote for Obama.

Yup, it passed the Senate 99-1. Only Russ Feingold had the stones to oppose it. I made the same pledge, but I had to qualify it too. I couldn't well vote for McCain or Romney or some other clown over Hillary. (Of course, Clinton-McCain is an impossible decision by that criterion.) Likewise, I can't abandon Obama just because Biden sold us out.
