This isn't Russia. Is this Russia? This isn't Russia.

"Bush Admin. Spying On Tens Of Millions Of Americans...

The government is secretly collecting records of ordinary Americans' phone calls in an effort to build a database of every call made within the country, it was reported Thursday.

AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth telephone companies began turning over records of tens of millions of their customers' phone calls to the National Security Agency program shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, said USA Today, citing anonymous sources it said had direct knowledge of the arrangement."

They are spying on US. Try as I might I can't think of ANY way patterns to domestic calls might suggest ties to terrorism.

I am furious at this invasion of our privacy. This is not a Police State and I'll be damned if I'm going to let them make us into a nation of Winston Smiths.
