Letter: Big Brother is listening; what is he learning?

Big Brother is listening. If you are too young to know where this came from, read George Orwell's "1984." Old George was just 29 years ahead of his time.

Do you talk on the phone? Big Brother is listening. Do you text? Big Brother is listening. Do you email? Big Brother is listening. Do you Google? Big Brother is listening.

Right now, Big Brother claims he is only looking at who calls whom from where and how long they talked. But, if those nasty Republicans retake the Senate in 2014, Big Brother may just decide it would sure be easier to win elections if we knew what their plans were. Maybe we need to start listening to conversations (and since anyone can vote Republican, we had better just listen to everybody).

"My administration will be the most transparent in history." Remember that promise? Think he didn't keep it? We just missed a few words. The entire promise was "Under my administration every American citizen's life will be the most transparent in history." Now, that's a promise kept.
