    I am glad the administration cares about this issue. I do too. We here in the States Have thrown away privacy rights ad hoc. We allow children to be involved in the purchase and use of ring tones designed to operate above and below adult hearing ranges. We allow Community Radio to be used by the general public. And now is a major tool of street gangs and drug dealers. We allow them to controll the airwaves near around and in our houses. We allow a Russian made fission computor program to be taught around our collage campuses that are openly communist. They insist the airwaves are free and they and thier groups can broadcast on any frequency and listen to any frequency in the air. We let that happen. We sell a spy Satilite to a private firm that Americans paid for and in turn Americans then have no protection from it. Shoot Myself??!! Where do we get the logic. We allow unregulated programs made by former or presant adversaries for sale in our country. Made I am sure to facilitate thier goals along with entertaining us. Shoot Myself??!! Where do we get the logic. Do we have a problem or are we just creating another bailout of some kind. Why do we do this to ourselves?? Give it attention, Please do Sir.
