"We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. When it comes to Women's rights we are still in the dark ages. My dress at the Met Ball was a political statement as well as a fashion statement. The fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous past a certain age is proof that we still live in an age-ist and sexist society. I have never thought in a limited way and I'm not going to start. We cannot effect change unless we are willing to take risks By being fearless and By taking the road leas traveled by. Thats how we change history. If you have a problem with the way I dress it is simply a reflection of your prejudice. I'm not afraid to pave the way for all the girls behind me‼️ As Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is being fearless. I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel ❤️ in this life and all the others. Join my fight for Gender. Equality! 🙏🏻" -Madonna

Are we surprised? We pay pretty money for a wireless service to companies who profit from selling and using any bit of information they can get from its customers. Privacy has been an illusion that government had feed down our throats to facilitate their own agendas in the name of "National Security"
US says Sprint fraudulently charged hidden fees for government wiretaps

The US government is taking Sprint to court for allegedly inflating the cost of performing wiretaps by millions of dollars. In a complaint filed on Monday, the government said Sprint had asked law enforcement agencies for an extra $21 million in reimbursement for its surveillance costs over a period of several years, raising its total bill by around 58 percent. As a penalty for adding "hidden costs" in requests between 2007 and 2010, the Obama administration wants Sprint to pay damages and separate penalties of between $5,500 and $11,000 for each of 29,000 expense claims, a number that could add up to hundreds of millions of dollars.

Companies are entitled to reimbursement for the expense of performing wiretaps or installing pen registers and trap devices to capture phone records. But the government alleges that Sprint also included the cost of upgrading its systems to make this surveillance feasible. It's possible Sprint could have been reimbursed through another government agency, but lumping these budget items in with charges to law enforcement violated explicit FCC rules, says the filing. Because Sprint allegedly didn't lay out these costs in the bills, agencies paid out, not knowing about the unreasonable charges. In 2010, the price of surveillance dropped after Sprint stopped adding in equipment costs. But Sprint, the administration says, never paid back the money it had gotten before then.

Of the roughly $37 million in bills to federal agencies, $20 million went to the Drug Enforcement Administration, while the FBI was charged $10.5 million; Immigration and Customs Enforcement was billed for $2.4 million, and the Secret Service, US Marshals, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were all asked for smaller amounts. Previous reports have said that the CIA also reimburses companies for information requests, but any charges from intelligence agencies aren't listed here.

Sprint has told Reuters that it intends to fight the charges. "We have fully cooperated with this investigation and intend to defend this matter vigorously," said spokesman John Taylor. It will be prosecuted under the False Claims Act, which is meant to prevent deliberately fraudulent expenses from being submitted to the US government.
