    Like partisans do from all sides of the spectrum, those Liberals that are ignorant will justify these actions because it's someone from their side doing it.

    Care to explain how tracking my cell phone is going to tell the government when I go take a ****?

    As I said, blown out of proportion.

    Liberals are, for the most part, way more partisan than any other political leaning.

    GPS tracking. My phone's GPS knowns exactly where I am within 10 meters and updates in real time as I move around.

    The point isn't the action. It's that allowing the government to track the movement of citizens without their knowledge and consent is a gateway to much more authoritative actions and quite frankly the government has no business in my business.

    We need a smaller government, not larger and more totalitarian.

    Liberals are just as partisan as those on the far right. The farther you go in either lean the more ignorant the people get.

    True,all you have to do is see this tread and it will confirm that.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Wow....

    Coming from a neoconservative, ill take that opinion with a grain of salt.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    The Obama administration says there is no reasonable expectation for privacy because it is a cell phone? WTF kind of bull**** is that.

    This is garbage without a warrent.

    I think you're all blowing this totally out of proportion.
    Frankly I think it's worse than listening to a call, which usually is a lot about nothing.
