  • Basically, it comes down to who needs to know. Now, who determines who needs to know and does that make the data any more secure???

    A recent visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Museum yielded several thought provoking quotes that I repeat here:

    “Most people would be glad to mind their own business if the government would give it back” (anonymous)

    “Those who expect to reap the blessing of freedom must undertake to support it.” (Patrick Henry)

    “It’s not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what’s required.” (Winston Churchill)

    And my personal favorite as it applies to this blog:

    “It is in the natural course of events that liberty recedes and government grows” (Thomas Jefferson)

    • Agree!
      Reference Jefferson, I remember an old quote; “A friend is a person who knows all about you and still likes you.”
      Sadly, the Govt. is not your friend!
