    Unbelievable. Not only is this a flagrant violation of individual civil liberties, the govt expects tech companies to shell out $$$ to ensure that their technologies are "tappable" (read: primitive).

    Our government is the most backwards, retarded, pathetic, dickheaded bunch of LOSERS AND FAILURES this country will ever see. May they all rot in hell. May they be the ones in the next building that gets attacked instead of civilians...
