If that's true, I would hate to have that job. How boring, the percentage of interesting conversations that are good to eavesdrop on can't be really high.
It'd be interesting though, wouldn't it? I mean.. obviously deplorable but I bet you'd listen to some reeeeally funny things.
Like the comment above, I would feel sorry for them if the FBI were tracking me.
It'd be really something. I just.. I mean.. like when there's sex, think they listen to that too!?
I think its strange that Fox News is the one reporting it.a better link btw
Fox News reporter acting like this is upsetting... I thought Fox News was of the opinion that Unless You Have Something To Hide, Don't Worry.... unless you're a terrorist or mafia, don't worry if the FBI can listen to ANY conversation you have in your cellphones presence with minimal approval and supervision from the courts...
Maybe EVERYONE is finally getting scared about the growing number of things the government can do to us and the waning number of things it can't...
Other western countries, the government is afraid of the people,... but our government has us so scared people are worried about assembling to talk about it. WTF?
I'm starting to think everyone's getting concerned.
It's just... craaazy.
I was sure it was some conspiracy theory thing, until I looked a little closer.
What the hell?
Big Bro is watching. Personally I'm looking forward to war with Eurasia. We've always been at war with Eurasia. And the weekly hates. Those will be fun.
That's . . . please tell me that's a joke?
No, I don't really doubt it. Sheesh.
I kinda miss the Constitution I learned about in school.
Yeah, I knew that. Still disturbing. Even though I don't have anything to hide, I still don't like the idea. it's just....RUDE, eh? On a ridiculously huge scale.
When you boil it down.
I don't want the government hearing me when I'm getting it on!
Or fighting with a friend..
Wow, now that really is scary! Watch out, Big Brother can see you.
Love that icon, by the way. ;}
I lurve that icon. He's my boy! :)
And it's reeeally scary I think. It just gave me chills once I realized it wans't an internet hoax.
i kinda suspected as much. i never use my phone for real conversations. gotta have those in person.
Yeah, but they can listen to those now too.
They just have to activate something in your cellphone, fi you have your cellphone on you. They can use it as a microphone.
they would be very bored listening to my conversations! They are welcome to it ; )
lol, you don't want to invite them!

It is scary to think that the FBI could listen to us, and that Americans are loosing their freedom. However there has never been a totalitarian state with a secret police officer at every corner. They could never afford such a large staff. Instead Totalitarian states like the Nazis only had a dozen or two gestapo/secret police for every million or so. Their job was normally to follow up on all of the tips and leads they received. This sorta means the FBI would only listen to a citizen's phone if they had a lead. Otherwise it would be like looking for a needle in haystack. People in America now just have more to fear from their neighbors and other informants. (I wrote a lot more than I meant to ><)
*nod* Totally, but it doesn't take much to piss people off. People are petty. Makes me think of the Salem Witch trials. *shudder* I hate having to be on my guard.
