The Government and US.

What kind of information do you think the United States government should collect about you?

This is the question I was confronted by on my browsers' homepage.

I wonder if they would like to look in my cars' trunk?

At first I was tempted to respond with ... "I really don't care; I have nothing to hide."  Thought better of that and realized they probably already know more about me than I can remember about myself now due to old age forgetfulness.

I believe the fact that we have come to mistrust our government speaks volumes about it's declining standing in world opinion.  As Bernie Sanders said "Our country is in a race to see who can get to the bottom first." Or some thing like that.

Can you feel the building pressure?  It's similar to diving too deep under the ocean.
