I'm so used to BIG BROTHER...watching. He's at the intersection of every street. At the mall. At the gas station. At the every type of store. At all schools. He has been everywhere....for YEARS. It just now that we have high technology we can monitor BIG BROTHER...and that's where the line is drawn in the sand for the government...not us. They don't like us looking back at them and then criticizing what they do cuz now? We have THEM on camera. So all I can say about it really is. Back at ya!
