Tea Time With Jesse

Six of One, Half Dozen the Other

A Clean Slate

April 1, 2065 A.D. …

Doctur Evil Genius swept in to what was left of the Oval Office and grabbed the pike with the President’s head from his minion. He gazed with satisfaction out the jagged holes of the White House, and observed his evil army herding civilians into filthy tractor-trailers. His plan to conquer America was now complete. He turned to his executive officer and said, “Mortimer, go through the ENTIRE collection of archives  and records at the NSA, the CIA, and the FBI. Erase it, burn it, shred it, DESTROY it all, Bwahahaha. Everyone gets to start with a CLEAN SLATE!” he thumped what was left of the President’s desk. “I may be eeeeevil, but I’m not that evil! I don’t need to scour through the past records of my citizens!” Then he chucked the head into a corner and grandly marched out to his awaiting armored luxury hovercraft.

And that fantasy scenario is why middlerage doesn’t want Verizon collecting my phone records. Even if it is “just meta data.”
