Jsobecky, on the court ruling and your example there are distinct differences in the expectations of privacy between a conversation overheard on the street and an active effort of eavesdropping on a private telephone conversation.
As it stands the court made a fairly conservative ruling not to change anything and go by strict interpretation regarding the priviacy of the person that happened to be a child.
"The court said it is against the law to intercept or snoop on anybody's private conversation and that even a child has privacy rights," said Christensen's attorney, Michael Tario. "And further, the law says it is a crime for someone to do that, and that whatever is heard cannot be mentioned in court."
Justice Tom Chambers wrote in the court's opinion, "The Washington act, with its all-party consent requirement, contains no such parental exception and no Washington court has ever implied such an exception. We decline to do so now."
You don't like it, move to Washinton State,
I just find it ironic as hell that presumably an anti-abortion conservative wants to consider a person under 18 NOT a full person availed of the same rights as everyone else, but you go right ahead and press that point all day long. You do know where it leads don't you?

Also, no ACLU, the south/republicans would still have jim crow laws, segregation, blacks not allowed top vote, women slaves to husbands, kids property of the men, working at age 6 in the factory, jews/mauslim/hindu/buddist/witches hanged or burned or shot for not being brainwashed christians, so forth. ACLU helped the south get out of the 1500s.

Many people already insist that their kids use the computer in a common area and the phone be put on the same system.
The Democrats had 76 more representatives at the time so that hardly makes for the Republican majority that you claim. In fact it is the opposite.
