I'm not even going to use an acrynym on this

I'm going to leave it at that and not express my political views, because it could get heated here.

I have nothing to worry about...I'm not sending bombs or chemicals in my packages. Hell...I barely use snail mail anyway.

It's just like when you say bomb on the internet...they know about it. It wont bother any of you unless you are doing something seriously wrong. And even then it probably wont bother you.

Bah, it means nothing to me. I don't see what the big deal is, other than it is "possibly" a "violation of constitutional rights". I really do not know where it says in the constitution we have a right to privacy. :?

Besides, I am the BOMB. :lol:

The way I see it, if they open my mail because they suspect me of something, then I have other more serious issues going on, considering I don't do anything to warrant a search of my mail.

That's just it... someone else may think that there is a reason to open your mail even if you don't think that there is a reason. :x

I'm not up to anything that the government needs to be concerned about but I still wouldn't want them snooping in my mail. This doesn't improve my feelings about our current president any.

Ugh... I hope they don't open mine. I don't want them to see what sort of pr0n or 'toys' I order online :lol: Just kidding :lol:

But really... yah security comes at a price but some things are taken a little far like this. I have nothing to hide and really the only mail I get are Credit Card offers :lol:

I watched these videos a few weeks ago and it's very interesting and makes you think twice about some things are done in this country... I was going to post them but each video is about an hour long so I figured it was a waste of time since no one would watch :lol: They make you open your eyes though and give you some history on how things came to be.

I also though this was interesting. It may not be totally relevant but here..

Oh, my gosh! Have you really not heard of the Fourth Amendment?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

^^but upon probable cause...

See, even our founding fathers were vauge.

nice try, but there is NOTHING in the constitution that says we have a RIGHT to PRIVACY, the government just has the RIGHT to do what they want...with probable cause.

Better watch what you say, they're watching you now :shock:

Recently read also that Microsoft worked directly with the NSA on Vista to help in the security aspect and more or less make sure that it was also compatible with existing government software. :-k Hmmm... government software eh? Wonder what sort of software that is that the NSA would be using :-k
