Remember the phrase, "we have to pass it to know what's in it?" Well  here we go again.The Omnibus Federal Spending Bill of 2018  was passed and here is one thing that is in it. "The Cloud Act." An inclusion that excluded your privacy in a matter that involves you. This bill allows big brother (U S and foreign law enforcement agencies), easier access to all your personal data(emails, wires, conversations, data)with no worry about your privacy rights or the company that holds your data.  So while you were guarding the front door, this came through the back.  Who knew, that our Senators and Congressmen, who represent us, would think this is "a good idea?" We have to start getting up to date and  staying abreast of what affects us before the fact, not after. For more information about this new law, see article UPI, Ray Downs,March 25, 2018
