"I’m going to take an unpopular position right now and say that, past outrage (about lying) and consternation (about free-market security), I
don’t think scans and searches are terribly nefarious."
When some ex-homeland security guy, whose primary allegiance is to another country (as evidenced by his dubious handling of certain Israeli suspects
after 9/11), is making millions off of these machines due to a conflict of interest, they are nefarious. When you are being bombarded with radiation
without knowing the long term negative health effects, they are nefarious. When the TSA/Corporate Controlled Government can accumulate a database of
everyone's junk, they are nefarious.
"You are showing, purposefully and to way more people, plenty more than your junk everyday via Facebook and other social media."
Sorry, I don't use Facebook or social media, since those sites are controlled by the scum of the earth.
"Google has lassoed your identity in a way that shames the NSA. What you’re buying, what you’re doing, who your friends are, where you work, how
much you make – the list is endless."
So Google knows that I visited NFL.com, the Weather Channel and a couple of porn sites today. Watch out they're coming to get me! Is Google also
bombarding us with radiation, grabbing our junk and taking and retaining nude photos of little kiddies? In addition, I don't have any friends and I
don't work, so that takes care of that.
"And you, friend, have no control over that information. You have an illusion of it, but you do not actually have control. That is not ridiculous; it
is actually scary."
Spare us the fear mongering pal because you do have control over it. All you have to do is terminate your internet connection if you're so concerned
about Google knowing which porn sites you visit.
"We’ve put a great deal of effort into not thinking about scary things, like the wars we are right now waging or that our rivers and coastlines are
toxic or that China owns our debt or that we are running out of oil. . . and water!"
Actually, the corrupt Government puts a lot of effort into shielding us from these scary things so we do not get wind of how despicable and treasonous
they really are. As for running out of oil, how is that a bad thing? The faster we run out of oil, the faster the planet will cleanse itself and the
faster these hideous petroleum corporations go down. As for running out of water, last time I checked water does not run out since it goes through a
cyclical pattern of evaporation. Yeah I know, these revelations must be quite a shock to you.
"Instead, we become hysterical about ridiculous, theatrical things, like grainy airport nudes."
This isn't about grainy airport nudes you moronic donkey, it's about Constitutional rights, the same exact concept this once great nation was founded
