I'm glad to hear this as I was listening a bit to Beck..yuk, I know, and it seems that both cruz and trump support the government. I don't really think cruz undestands what is being asked of Apple; they are being asked to make a new product for the government by force...he sounded like it was a simple question of them doing what the government is asking... what the government is asking is fascism.

My husband was not up to speed on this issue and asked me about it last night. He was surprised that I agreed with Apple. I agree with internet privacy, but let's look at this a little more closely. This is a guy whose wife was clearly radicalized. She was openly posting on FB about her beliefs. The FBI, etc., said they did not check social media because they wanted to respect the member's privacy.

That, right there, ^^^ is a load of hooey. They won't look at something that is said right out before God and everybody, but they want to force one of the largest companies in the world to give them the master key so they can have access to all of us? Are you kidding me?

This is not about San Bernadino. It is about you and me.

It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to see it.

This just drives me crazy. The FBI would rather waste time and a truckload of money trying to force Apple to give up its secrets, but they can't ask one of their kids what's on FB? They probably have a whole room full of people whose job is to do nothing but look up people on FB. Give me that job. I'll have productive information for you in thirty minutes. I hate social media, but I would jolly well do it for money.

But they would not reference the FB postings of Tashfeen Malik, even though there are eyewitnesses to suspicious activity at her home. Local authorities knew neighbors had concerns.
