Bush and the Phone companies

Just wondering how everyone feels about the recent news about the phone companies screening our phone calls....here's a link....what do you think??? I'm not sure how I feel.

Of course, I want our country to be safe and secure, but I feel like the funds could maybe be used in other, more useful ways at the moment. Plus, I don't like feeling like I'm being watched, or listened to. Maybe now I understand a little more where my Mom is coming from with all her schizoid delusions about the government....maybe she knows something we don't.

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING..........

I think if I was a terrorist or saying something on my cell phone that I didn't want anyone to know, then I would care.

If the government wants to monitor my calls - they really must be bored.

Listen away!

I think that the latest is more than just finding terrorists. I think what the gov is looking to do is find "hubs" of numbers that a lot of different people call, be they terrorists or tupprware salemen, and then watch that list to determine if they have WMDs in their garages....

I think maybe folks should maybe visit their freinds who have a little something rather than call them t'see if'n they got something, if'n ya know what I mean.

Hey Alli-gal
"B" want to know if you had your bon fire yet? We have that couch and now he wants to bring over an old beat up pinic table. Let us know.

OK, well, today I learned that if'n ya pick a new template (y'know, like if yer bored with everything being too static and all...) anyway, ya get a new background, and the blogger keeps all yer back "issues" and all, but, they throw away yer sidebar addresses.
And so, today I was spending like way too many hours on retracing to everywhere that ever sent me a comment (and were friendly,...) and putting m'links back together when I suddenly realized that I forgot the my-space link.
Then I remembered that y'all were the one who got me into it in the first place (cause ya can't write a comment 'less yer a my spacer, so I went to yer blog site and on yer sidebar, found yer my space and clicked on it.
Of course, I expected to get to my-space proper by clicking on one of yer friends (me) and then I would have m'address again.
But, guess what?
Oh shoot. You already know what....
Gal, I din't even hear the guy yellin, "abandon post! Abandon post!" only the quiet clicking of the 'puter in the background while an announcement of user all gone flashed on the screen.

what're ya? Kiddin' me? Dang!
Was it m'bad breath? I mean, I know I could knock a buzzard off a shit wagon with it, but, golly gee whiz! Where's everybody gone off to?

Oh well......

OK, well, it sounds like you're still online in myspaceland, but, the link ya have on yer sidebar is whacky.


You can post any picture of mine ya want anytime anywhere.
Well, about that last one,....hmmmm
I suppose show good taste, and it's OK. Anyway, who'my foolin? Nobody's gonna have any of them pictures tattooed to their butts, eh?

No, really. Yer not gonna tattoo them to yer butt, are ya?
