    I still don't have a problem with it. Talking on a cell phone is no different than having a face to face conversation on the sidewalk and someone standing close enough to hear everything you say. Just like the sidewalk, if you are worried about someone hearing you, don't say it on your cell phone.

    What if you are in your house talking on your cell phone? Is that the same as talking on the sidewalk? Should land lines be tapped too? Or do just cordless phones qualify for "sidewalk" talking?

    I use my cell phone as a home phone.

    When I'm talking in private with no other person around, how is that the same as a face to face conversation?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Bush, is that you?

    I swear that sounds alot like Bush's way of thinking - and remember how much everyone hated him for that?

    Spoken like a true authoritarian. Power to the state!

    Hey, does that weird logic apply to landlines?

    They're not listening in on the actual call. They're only tracking the phone's location. It's not a huge invasion of my privacy if the government knows that I left my house and went to the Piggly Wiggly, then came back home.

    I think you're all blowing this totally out of proportion.

    Oh, but that's different. We have to support this president, because it's--now--the patriotic thing to do.
