Remember the days when you thought someone was listening in on you conversation?  And a friend says, ‘oh you’re just being paranoid.’  I guess it started when we had a party-line on our telephone.  It was back it the 1960’s and two people could use the same phone number, when they were not using it, you could use the phone and sometimes when you picked up the phone to make a call, you could hear the other person’s conversation, and then you would interrupt them by saying, “Oh sorry, I need to use the phone.”  Well, then people would tell stories when the  local police bugged phones to get information.  And it was also the word being ‘tapped’ on the phone.  Now the government says they have a right to listen in on phone conversations because of terrorism.  Okay.  Not only do they want the right to listen to our conversations on the phone, they want access to our emails, also because of terrorism.  We are also being told we should frequently change our passwords on the websites we use like face book, google, and your email password.  We are reminded to get a safe guard your email app.  Okay.  In case someone gets your password and starts reading all your email and sign in to the websites you enjoy. These people may be the Chinese or Russians, your know the commies, breaking into our email.  Okay.  When out in public, should I look at the person next to me to make sure they are not watching me put in my password on my key board?  May cover one hand on my key board so they will not get my password.  Not only that, do not forget, when you toss papers in the trash, do not have information that has your social security number or name with address on it.  There are criminals who go through your papers looking for information to use to get any identification, this is fraud.  Okay.  Now, relax, turn on the television, and watch a James Bond movie, 007, making leaps and flips catching the bad guy.
