Default Privacy Article - There Apparently is NONE...

Interesting article on privacy at CNN's website:

Who is really stealing your privacy? - CNN.com

More and more, I cannot stand the direction this country is going in. How did we, as the nation who is supposed to cherish our freedoms, allow this sort of thing to happen?

Just as Christmas is approaching, many of the unemployed will be losing their benefits since Congress apparently has no time to take it up for a vote. I don't care which side of the debate you are on, doesn't this at least deserve to be voted on?

I hear very little about any attempts by the government to help create new jobs. Granted, there is no magic bullet here, but they could at least try SOMETHING!

Instead, what super-important new laws were they working on passing? Must be pretty important stuff to ignore the economic situation, the deficit, our crumbling infrastructure, Social Security and Medicare...

CRACKING DOWN ON BAKE SALES!

The Associated Press: Hold the brownies! Bill could limit bake sales



Time for a new political party. We can call it the "We'll Tackle the Serious Issues and Let the Local PTA's Worry About the Bake Sales Party"

It happens very, very gradually over time, bit by bit, degree by degree, no one notices the temperature is rising until they are cooked.

The schools barely receive any funds anyhow, this money may be the kids field trip money or end of the year party money

Next we'll have to apply for a business license to hold a garage sale

Don't laugh. In one Chicago suburb you actually need a permit to have a garage sale...

Sounds about right. Imagine being a fly on the wall at the County Jail



"So...what are you in for buddy?"


"I had a yard sale" :>

The frogs in boiling water thing is actually a myth, but I do agree with the point you're making.
