    Few people would consider me a stupid person, but I fail to see how we simply stop at this point; so we 'all know' the various phone companies have to take our request to call a certain phone number, then use their equipment to connect this call.  For this reason we have 'no expectation of privacy'.

    After that of course it's all magic!  We're no longer using the company's equipment so we may now expect complete privacy in our conversations.

    Oh, wait.  We're using the EXACT SAME HARDWARE.  Why do we think we have an expectation of privacy when it's been decided we had none before?

    -7.38, -5.38 (that's a surprise)

    Why must we struggle to protect the accomplishments of Democrats of the past from Democrats of the present? -- cal2010
