Why is it always the people with the most boring milk toast lives are always those most concerned with surveillance conspiracies ? Ever notice that? Is their freedom really in jeopardy or have they just been watching too many TV shows ? Have the police ever come crashing your down at 3am ? Do the black helicopters circle your house incessantly ? Probably not.
You say "the gubmint" is tracing you phone calls ? Yeah, theres probably a record of them somewhere. Ive always assumed that. Im not doing anything wrong so I really don’t care. I even pay my taxes and don’t complain, imagine that. If they have been listening in for example to conversations I had with my "ex", I know for sure I am off their list forever. I know this because the syndication contract for the worlds most pitiable comedy series never arrived in the mail.
What Im saying is why on earth are people so convinced Uncle Sam is watching their every move ? Its hilarious. I had a kid at Walmart tell me that he had it on good authority that "the gubmint" was buying up all the .22 rounds, and stockpiling them. The only thing I can think is that they must have advance knowledge on an invasion to be staged by bunny rabbits. I'll guard my carrots.
Pay your tax, keep your nose clean and the world will turn. Take what you hear with a grain of salt and ask yourself if your life is really curtailed, clipped, confounded or curdled by The NSA, CIA, DEA, ATF, FBI or any other organizational acronym. My bet is if you put 80 thousand people in a football stadium you might find a couple dozen worthy of surveillance, and chances are they aint Oapey or Aunt Bee.
While we're at it, lets think about all the nasty things "the gubmint" does to make our lives miserable. For instance, ever since they built "that there darned" Eisenhower Interstate System we cant enjoy a leisurely ride to Grandma's in the horse and buggy. Dang ! We were hopin to catch pneumonia on the way in dead of winter. Whats more, if it werent for "them there" big "gubmint" regulations all the big wigs and fat cats in the offshore corporations would forgo avarice, greed and profit and give us a better deal on everything from gas to prescription medicine. Right away. Would you like to buy a bridge considering yesterday was your birthday ?
Our system isnt perfect, but best I can tell it far exceeds day to day life in the outlands of Sudan.
