Can privacy be a thing of the past?

I don't have a computer. I feel safe that way. Don't have email. My cellphone is only for emergencies, so it's off.

I'm wondering if our mail is next. Like a letter form Africa, from an Air Force colonel. Could it be opened before I receive it? Are our home phones being watched, and will I be on camera if I go into a Asian or Arabian food store?

If this will stop terrorists, how did two at the finish line in Boston get through all that security with two backpacks? Not to mention their phone calls back home.

How long will American let our government blow smoke up our, I'll say, behind?
