I agree with senecamom completely. And the "if your doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about" arguement is flawed. What if the people in the government who are doing this monitoring, are the ones who need to be monitored? Who are these people? How do we know they are not a bunch of low life sumbags? (Which I believe they are.)
And Greymane, ee are supposed to have the right to say whatever we feel like saying in our private conversations. What right do you have to tell someone they should "watch what they say" in a private phone conversation? How dare you, my good sir. No one has that right.
