I'm not critical of the US per se, but I've heard, read and seen some things over the last 7 years or so that have worried me greatly about the government’s use of power, not only in the world in general, but with regards to it's citizens. I appreciate there's a need for greater security, but it is imperative that fundamental values like personal liberty (which includes privacy), critical elements of free societies, are not undermined in the pursuit of that security...

Never liked Vista in the first place. It's a rip of other OSes IMO, and a blatant rip at that.

I have my firewall app running (ZAISS) so unless they tunnel in elsewhere, I feel ok for the time being. Not like they can't in any case.

Not really that many names? You have: The US, USA, The States, United States of America, America, USofA? LOL, the UK only has one name, it's "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland" I think..? Personally, I think we ought to drop the whole Great Britain and Northern Ireland bit. It's been a while since the county was great imo and most people know NI is part of the UK and if they don't it doesn't really matter anyway... England is just a part of the UK btw along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. So really, UK is probably the most appropriate name .

I wouldn't bother coming over here, unless you're fond of hearing some of our accents and dialects. Personally, I think we've got little to offer the average tourist, but that's just my opinion . Maybe you like history? The UKs got a fair bit of that lol .

Seriously though, this whole thing could just be an anti-bush hoax. The inclusion of Halliburton (like pauldovi suggests) does seem a bit odd and points towards a possible politically motivated hoax. Still, even if it is a hoax, it does no harm to think about the government’s role in our lives and the world and give some thought to how well our governments are serving us. Are they misusing their power? Are they representing our views and interests? It's totally irresponsible to allow any government to function without questioning it and questioning the answers it provides. It's such a shame that more people are not more willing to be more political and really force government to be accountable and to be more transparent.

If the source for this "news" was some actual news organization, I might think it has some merit. But the source is another forum like this, which is evidently very anti-establishment, much like this forum.

You all overreact to everything and fail to think rationally about anything involving the government. None of you have lost any freedoms, nor will you ever, and you all know it. Yet you salivate at the mouth at the slightest hint that someoen is spying on you. Are you all that narcissistic? Get over yourselves guys. Uncle Sam doesn't give a **** what you post on OCN.
