So what?... You can't possibly be serious, and if you are, don't count on my
vote if you ever run for office. I don't mean for this to sound snotty, Dan,
but think about what you just wrote. I don't go around commiting crimes left
and right, but that doesn't mean I want some officious snot of a beaurocrat
poking his/her/its nose into where I go or what I buy or who I speak to
anytime they happen to have an urge.

And the sad fact is that both individuals and gov'ts have demonstrated that if
they are given the ability to snoop and use info for private gain, they will
do so.
