    Not at all. And it wouldn't work anyways. Why would any decent terrorist talk in plain language over an easily traceable phone? That's stupid. Besides, it's far easier to simple register new e-mails, write a draft, save it and have your friend log in and read the draft and communicate that way and do it via internet cafe or free wi-fi. The ID thieves who tried this got caught because they were using their static IPs and were already being monitored. Nothing gets sent over traceable lines and it's hidden in the millions of accounts out there. And if you're super paranoid, you just register with the e-mail accounts that disappear within 30 minutes and prearrange the times to write and read the drafts. If you expect to win a war against terrorism, you'll never win if you can't think like them.

    Aside from the fact there were laws on the books at the time barring non-warranted backed surveillance of US to US calls...which happened.

    Ashcroft did not agree the program was Constitutional. Seriously. ASHCROFT.

    "affordability credits"? Is that what I can afford, or what the government can afford for my treatment?

    Can we post about how meaningless your posts are?

    You mean you will troll the thread rather than actually speak to the topic? Got it.

    As to the OP, I don't see what difference it makes...one section of the government versus another having the same information. The education departments already get tax info to determine grant eligibility, HUD gets it for housing info, etc.

    It's nothing new. Or am I missing something here?
