Good grief, the 1800's are sounding better all the time - back when we didn't have all this technology.

I was just thinking how life was before the Internet. Even then, the government knew too much about us. I feel akin to being raped, because the government is taking so much from us. The Internet has been good for most of us, but the rapists want the power over us.

First they'll spy on us with their nifty new toys, then they'll shoot us with their nifty giant supply of ammunition.  :nono:

Will they at least get their shoe phones?

 Sorry about that, Chief.
