I agree with allot of the above, they can get whatever the heck they want, face book, it seems to me aside from identifying directly any fools talking
plans of violent action and posting it in their face book messages ROFL, what they want is to compile and profile. They have been doing this for
decades other ways, school records, employment records, credit, legal records.
Those things already give quite a detailed description of who you are
I'm not sure it much matters if they go into your face book and just get complete details on you, I mean... so now they know when I pick my nose
I would say i do regret a few posts I made all excited about the States rights movement... But if they look at me that closely it would be obvious
i'm not planning some insurgency about it... There is no crime in supporting legal actions you agree or disagree with if your not making violent
plans or illegal plans in regards to those topics...
so this remains for me... The same issue it was before face book, an issue of privacy rights an issue that as a person we were already on the loosing
side of, I'm just saying that I don't think there is anything new here.
I actually don't know that it's a bad thing that they can peek and get any info they want, there are serious freaks out there, what we do need is a
clause by which invasion of your privacy can't be used or held against you for anything but capital crimes...
i.e. No one needs the fact that they are a member of normal forwarded to local law enforcement, personal data shouldn't be allowed in ordinary
trials like, cheating on a spouse in a divorce case...and those things aren't happening to the best of my knowledge, but they could... and this is
what we all really fear, our lives messed up or disrupted over our human bs foibles, mistakes and personal business
I don't think anyone of us gives a hoot... if a guy with a truck load of fertilizer bomb get's identified and stopped because the Federales can
access his face book...
I don't think this even hampers the ability to revolt or take back the government if they get out of control, a mass rising of people is like...a
force of nature, weather, face book profiles will be of little use if the people of America are truely victimized and feel the need to march...
what the ability to peek does prevent... Is 4 idiots and 2 pick up trucks and a few sniper rifles that decide for themselves one sunny day that the
revolution starts that Thursday.
Not very sure... it's a bad thing
What it lacks and what makes it bad is no oversight, no system of checks and stops to prevent abuse
If we were to make a fuss about anything that maybe could get heard and something done about it, it would be some sort of public oversight into the
system to avoid abuse... proper litigation a good legal fuss made by the voters stating their legitimate concerns...
I think a BIG part of the problem still lays within public apathy of proper process and involvement... whenever this stuff pisses people off the first
comment always is "well if THEY do this... it's be over my dead body" or whatever... and that kind of fuels the fire...
We still have the capacity, to really pull together and get involved and rock the system in the direction we want and to demand the controls we
want... most of us are just apathetic to the process, money, money and work time particularly in a bad economy make it difficult for us to mount a
legitimate protest and form organizations and push for what we want... lobby back, demand our rights
And I hate to say it, it is in part our own materialistic and consumer nature that holds us back, we accept cable TV, we stay home and talk but
nothing much more.
Let's face it... I'm up at 3:30 am and any one who responds to this is up TALKING about it in a forum, but none of us are out setting up Non Profit
organizations to defend our privacy...
I have to ask myself if I was different, if WE were different in action as people could anything negative be done to us? IfI was up at 3:300 Am
drawing up legitimate plans for a privacy advocacy group every night instead of talking about Conspiracies being part of the process, could I ever be
The honest answer is no... they get away with it because mostly we are all talk and no action. And Most Action proposed on the Net is ... moronic
threats and tough guy nonsense that only lends proof to the Feds that the people are a bunch of violent nut cases ready to fly off the handle and
offers justification for these invasive actions.
So if they get away with it, in the end, it is partly at least our own fault for taking the bait, being apolitical, amoral people concerned with
comfort not active in any meaningful way in politics.
I'm just saying
You'd think if we really cared,there would be 10 political parties active and credible not 2. But the reality, most people talk allot myself
then a rerun of That 70's show comes on and I forget about it until the next thread on the subject in 2 weeks and keep posting on facebook...
And the thing is for all the conspiracies we fear and talk of...
I don't think they ever will be dumb enough to let the bulk of us be uncomfortable enough to get out of our lounge chairs and put down our bongs and
mojitos. Keep us comfortable and plugged in and they can get away with anything in the end.
They wont be using face book to harass you for minor nonsense... because as a wise man once said "everyone's a felon" they'd have to arrest
This is to shut you up if you don't play by the rules, and really most of us will never have reason to care, even those of us in here mostly... have
the tube on or are busy talking trash... Actually attempt to stop them in any way and not be clean as a whistle... well yeah, then they got you.
The only answer is for most of America to genuinely get involved in the political process again, to make it a major part of our lives.
Again sadly 90% of the most passionate political debaters in here or anywhere else, will just log out and go get ice cream or something and never be a
part of who actually runs for office... sad but true
