1. Context would be helpful for us bandwidth limited DUers.

Otherwise it's meaningless gibberish.

Sorry, my friend. Please. What's this about?

2. Why in America..."Greatist Country on History of the Earth" would you have Limited Bandwith?

I have it too...but if you are on Dial Up...I totally understand since I was on it for years.

I'll see if I can find something in print..for this but unlikely. Still...will try.

3. The piece was about Nixon's almost being impeached for a small time wire tapping offense and

 

now it is routine (since Bush) and done on a massive scale, every internet communication, every phone call. Nixon resigned the Presidency over it.

4. Yep...well said. now it's normal...when then it was shocking. How we've changed

as a country. We are almost getting immune and dulled to outrage by our politicians.

My iPhone bandwidth resets at midnight tonight. Here, it's barely better than dialup.
