    The guys who are "just looking out for our best interests" have slipped another one past us.

    Remember when Ceausescu made every typewriter owner submit a sample of typing so that he could see who was writing bad stuff about him?

    Your printer is printing out coded messages so that the government can see what you're up to.

    Anyone sticking up composites of Dubya behind bars, or any of those "chimp expression" shots, is in big trouble.

    The printer is not SENDING out anything, Galatian! It is printing tiny yellow dots on the pages you print which will help finger you if the paper you have printed it on is used for anything illegal, like counterfeiting.

    Get some sleep. I think you need it.

    Walk uprightly with the Lord, and fear nothing the government may find on your printer or computer. If they were to examine my computer life they would become quite bored. Of course some may want to persecute me for defending the President's stand on terrorism, but as yet, it's legal.

    I'm more worried about the wires embedded in highways that track our every movement, as one of my neighbors thinks [​IMG]
