Note: To Security Services; Yes I feel queesy posting this. Before ruining me, give me a call and perhaps you can enlighten me so that we are all on the same page. I feel queesy posting about Anonymous and Snowden and Hastings and Barret Brown. I don't want to go to prison and orphan my children for "punching above my weight". But its the right thing to do and somebody has to do it. You remember the old adage  First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.
