NEST of Snakes

What a POS invasion of our liberty and privacy.

You want google to monitor your thermostat settings? Read the US Declaration of Independence.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

You can't pursue happiness without Life, of course, but you can't do it without Liberty as well.

Perhaps more understanding of this problem is developing. I sure hope so.

Anybody who would stand for or allow information-bearing electromagnetic radiation to emerge from their real or personal property without their ability to monitor it, and TURN IT OFF fails to meet minimum requirement as a responsible human being , a participant in a free society with whom we can interact and respect.

"By preying on the modern necessity to stay connected, governments can reduce our dignity to something like that of tagged animals, the primary difference being that we paid for the tags and they are in our pockets."
