All of our phone (landline and cell) conversations are easy to be listened to, and many have been, by many different alphabet agencies for many, many years – sometimes just for the amusement of those with the mere ability to listen, with zero probable cause, or even excuse – just personal recreational curiosity. Imagine how much more use is made by those that think they have legitimate reasons to do so. How do I know that? NO one is on my “need to know list.” It’s safer that way.
