first off I have a prepaid cell phone, this cell phone does not have a name or address attached to it. this is perfectly legal. I do not use this phone for business or any illegal activity. I remove the battery until I feel I have to use it.

I can also give this phone to anyone I choose and get another.

They use it all to exploit the people into submission. to install a great fear that everyone is suspect, EVERYONE, you , me, our friends and family

we are the suspects, treated as if we are guilty until we are proven innocent.

t hese electronic devices are nothing more than leashes and we are not the owners.
