When did I give stores permission to keep my credit/debit card information? I buy something. I pay. End of transaction. But, of course, no politician has dared to ask that question. Nothing matters in the good old USA except doing business. It isn’t government that I worry about interfering with my privacy, its business – and don’t get me going about when I authorized telephone invasion of my home. For the record, I’m neither a leftist nor right wing, just an American who is disturbed that anything goes these days if it is business – gambling, porno, TV obscenity. None of this has anything to do with individual liberties but is only business using freedom as a mask.
