"The White House is collecting and storing comments and videos placed on its social-networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube without
notifying or asking the consent of the site users, a failure that appears to run counter to President Obama's promise of a transparent government and
his pledge to protect privacy on the Internet, the Washington Times reported."
This has a bit of a stench of "once we take over, we can go back and get them" to it. Between government searching and archiving our discussions,
the GPSing of our households and the "turn in your neighbor" scams, things are seeming quite scary these days.
I once heard that, I do believe it was Lockhead, had technology in place that no conversation goes unrecorded. I brought this to attention of a rather
intellectual sort, but he seemed to think that it was entirely possible, and likely true.
Really, honestly, nobody should be alarmed about this... but, it's not like it's a cool thing to do.
Maybe I'm off here...but...why would you archive such items and conversations if you weren't planning to do something with it later? And if so,
wouldn't you, likely, already have an idea of what you intend to do with the data?
I guess where I'm going, especially considering the track history of this administration and the government in general...wouldn't they more than
likely be planning to use this data AGAINST us?
Let alone that they are using our tax dollars to use our words against us.
And not to mention, the government will use your cell phone as a "bug" (as in, using your cell phone as a microphone). They aren't just listening
to your phone calls, they are using your phone while it's in your pocket.
Believe it or not, the government has been eavesdropping on me with my cell phone. You can notice if they are listening to you if your battery drains
faster than normal. But hey, if you read some of my posts (or visit a website I made), you can understand why they are listening to me...
But gotta love this government -- spitting on the Constitution. America bless America (because God sure won't be if there is God).
