    In another article, the Blues had some other big concerns:

    Play nice with trying to be the 'first' to announce a time to get out of iraq, while secretly sliding this through, which doesn't need congressional approval anyway. Bait and switch, and Bush still doesn't get it right.

    Right now even the fed and state need a warrant for bank records ... hate to see them get that info without a warrant.

    Add that to prying into phone records, ISPs, etc. and a lot of people can find themselves cuffed in a room.

    Bad enough that so much of you credit card history is in the open right now.

    I think going down the slippery slope has begun and there is no end in sight. They might as well change the country name to Unit Stats of China or something. :rolleyes:

    But god forbid the gummint have access to information about what guns you own. They do that, and the next thing you know they'll be kicking in your door with their jackboots to take your guns away.

    But you can trust them with all your communication and financial information.

    Sure...
