The dea is out of control and must be reigned in or ,better yet, abolished. They have no respect for the will of the voters not to mention the bill of rights. They have murdered several innocent victims during their destructive para military raids,

All those users who called their dealer's 'beepers' are going to have lots of 'splaining to do!!

<LOL>

But seriously - American citizens have a reasonable expectation to privacy. Messing with our phone call records (which we pay for when we make the call) IS a violation of our privacy rights!

This is the USA; your corporate overloards own that data and will sell it to whomever they like. Your silly laws will not stop them./s

In all seriousness, this spying bullshit needs to go and we need new data privacy laws put in place along with a digital bill of rights.
