Lately it has come out that the IRS has targeted political opponents of the current administration and that the govt may actually really and truly be spying on you. Data mining (as they say) and perhaps just out and out eavesdropping seems to be the issue.
I'm not shocked. Are you? What shocks me is that people are shocked by all these "revelations." Thought you really lived in a free country did you?
What rock have you been living under?
