    I agree Sunshine. I think it just manifest itself in different ways and to many degrees.

    I found it creepy when my governor sold out and handed over all state voting records to the feds last year. The CDC will do what it will do but where are the guarantees that private business will not be given access to my medical history?
    No new found paranoia here, just the usual contemporary dilemmas.
