    The slippery slope of the police state gone wild, just sell fear and use it as a excuse for erasing all Liberty & Freedom and the Constitution of the U.S.. Congress & President are derelict of duty. Vote em Out.

    It's obviously a pre-emptive strike against suicide bombers.

    I really doubt suicide bombers call 1-800-SUICIDE before they go blow something up, but it probably looked like an easy loop hole for NSA to get personal records since individuals would be calling voluntarily.

    I really doubt that anyone else would take the comment you're respoding to seriously.

    That line was more in the vein of Skunk's post. The rest is a completely off-the-wall take on the OP's news.

    Um, Where'd you get the drugs?

    Ok. Well you don't have to be rude

    I can just see a suicide hotline under this government's control....

    "So you're thinking of committing suicide? That's okay, we're here to help you. Let me tell you about Jesus...."
