Not a slap on the wrist, but a hankshake?

The heart of justice becomes the heart of darkness as Privacy is sacrificed - auctioned off to the highest corporate bidder?

This is a time when 'whistle blower' is no longer considered a positive label in government circles and Constitutional advocates and investigative journalists are left dumpster diving behind Homeland Security and its attendant agencies seeking to revive some form of shredded justice buried among the coffee grounds and orange peels?

Entrails of the Bush era still alive and kicking; come back to haunt us with fear and terror censoring the Right of Privacy?

No apology by the state...not even a slap on the wrist but a handshake as the Constitution is assaulted by the 'new terrorism' and the heart of justice becomes the heart of darkness for any American citizen?

Future Federal foibles possible?

Remember the friendly Maytag Repair Man essentially advertising a washer that never breaks down? Became a legend almost? Those were the days ,eh?

Call your friendly repair man today for washer or let's say, computer problems and being digitally-challenged in so many ways plus it's late and you've got a project with a deadline and you're in desperate need to solve the 'disfunctionality' of your digital god? Call a number and an overseas voice from the Philippines or India etc is at your service.

Not just one call solves the problem so you rake up a series of calls from India, Philippines, wherever; trying to get those contingent problems resolved.

Knock, knock. Who's there?

My question of PRISM experts...how many overseas calls get you on surveillance lists?

This is serious business indeed but there are all kinds of foibles in such a simplistic system to out terrorists among us..but then again neither will Homeland Security in black dress shoes or jackboots be deterred by bubblegum on your doorstep?

My question...is this is the beginning of something-not-so-great?
