Good point, but your private information is harvestable due to your paper trail as a newborn,census bureau,
public education, medical records, family military history,family employment and taxpaying history, not to
mention social contact/interaction and "Neighborhood Watch" agents. On top of that, you have private
company's such as CVS,Wallmart,Shoprite,etc who have definately stored data about you. For instance,
did you ever notice when you buy something at these types of outlets, that the cashier asks if you have a
CVS card, Bonus Card,Rewards Card, whatever...etc. Now here is the icing on the cake: Military Contractor Companies like LockheedMartin,Boing,General
Electric,etc. have an incredible state of the art surveillence and data mining programs.Programs that are so incredibly advanced, that good old Uncle
Sam refers to their data
in times of need. (At Taxpayer expense of course.) So if you wan't to nurture paranoia, there is plenty of
fuel for the fire. But c'mon really, it is not us that they are after,and you know it.
But given the opportunity, they will steal and capitalize on your ideas. It is a givin.
So be smart, and register with The Library of Congress, or submit your ideas to The United States Patent Office.
Thank you kindly for replying to my thread. Best to you and ATS at large.
