Nemmerle;4755679As I mentioned elsewhere: We've been going this way for a long time now. Did you know a police officer can physically search you without a reason or a warrant now; wherever you are and whatever you're doing?

Yeah, shame Labour had to throw our freedom bill down the gutter. Churchill should be rolling around in his grave.

AlDaja;4759039But...It's for the people. We are only doing it to assure your safety and that of the community.

I hope you are joking.

There are approperiate security measures (laws) and things that go too far. Ofcourse it's a matter of opinion were the balance between privacy and security (monitoring) lays but in my opinion the laws were mostly just fine in the 90's. I'm not going to give up a huge chunk of my privacy, no, not even if it means this could stop a one in a billion chanche of a certain terrorist attack or other criminal plan that would not have been detected with conventional laws/methods. &*% your DNA database (unless a person has actually been involved in terrorist activities and convicted for it, perhaps then)., *^%&* police being able to sent away innocent train and airplane spotters, people photographing public places for art, architecture or for other such reasons, ^#%& the police being able to search me when they feel like it and %^%@ them being able to ask for my ID aslong as I aren't caught breaking the law (if I did, they would need my ID to verify the fine goes to the right person but that's it). Such laws are just totally out of proportion to what they are made for to prevent.

You don't read many of my posts when it comes to political views... Oh well. joking yeah;), but I was quoting the current leadership of Democratic Party of the US - specifically Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, who use those catch phrases often to justify government intrusion.

AlDaja;4760112You don't read many of my posts when it comes to political views...

I haven't read a lot of posts since December 9th. Hell, no pub posts at all. So my memory is a little fuzzy besides remembering the general view points from a handfull of members (which does or did not include you =p ).

I needed a quick jump into the pub to get some much needed ale/debate.

NoW I have readed your post a second time I can see the obvious sarcasm in it.

Oh well. joking yeah;), but I was quoting the current leadership of Democratic Party of the US - specifically Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton, who use those catch phrases often to justify government intrusion.

Cath phrases, they are great if you share the views. They are hilarious or even rediclious when you don't agree with them ("lol, yeah right... :rolleyes:" ).

There was something else that I intended to add to my last post which came to mind just after I left the computer but now I can't recall what it was. Bugger.
