But if they never give you Fatherly advice on your minor wrongdoings how are you gonna learn from the wrong doings? Smile

Not saying you do anything wrong but I guess the Agencies would say they only do their job if they monitor all of us.

Here in Sweden they keep such records for monthes or two years according to a EU directive. some countries has rebelled against it. Don't ask me which country. I try to not think about it. It is bad enough that Google knows every search I did about the UFO cover up and Truthers and whathaveyou to watch out for. David Icke and the Reptoid Lizzard conspiracy movement. No I don't believe in them but it is interesting that anybody can believe in it.

so now google see me as a lunatic reading about it.
