if the gov did tap into the feed? They'd get nothing, as the room is so isolated - and they might even just assume I was already in Gitmo by the decor.

Yeah, tell 'em to join ATS too! I hear this place is a great place to get distracted from the economy....min dyou it also has bad news but at least you know the "truth" about it
Enough is never enough. No amount of wealth or power can sate whatever drives these men... these little tin gods who occupy high offices and make sacrifices to their own egos for reasons I cannot even begin to understand. They expend vast fortunes and lifetimes, one after another, seeking to take away what little the masses have. I guess, for some, having is not enough. It must be the thought of making sure others do not have that drives them.

0o0o0 i like that pavlovian response bit. Well said.
Heres my hitch with it, IF the system was being used to spy on people in their homes one of the millions of tech genius 20 year olds who spend their entire young life tinkering with electronics and figuring out ways to screw with electronic systems would figure it out... Some one would be able to figure out that data is being sent. And if it was indeed uncovered by one of these techies or if it was leaked internally ( as i think it would be seeing how its Microsoft) it would spell the complete and total collapse of Microsoft.

All of the information about spying on citizens is disgusting. I'm sure they already collect data on people and store it.
But to what purpose? With NDAA they don't need any evidence to snatch someone up and put them down at all. Just mention classified and terrorist, there you go, goodbye and now nobody cares that you're gone, because hey, they said he/she is a domestic terrorist.
Why bother making a case and collecting evidence when all you need is a suspicion that someone is thinking too hard about things, or whatever it is that they don't like about you, and couple that with unlimited "detention" (more likely termination) powers? These days they can just make s*** up about you after the fact of your disposal.
I mean, they don't need to prove anything to anyone, according to the laws we currently live under. It's enough to scare me senseless, and that's because I have a kid and I don't want to do anything to endanger her safety or well being. It is completely mind blowing that just based upon the things I read and post and say, I could be in deep doo doo. Reality is so unreal these days.
I hope none of this is real, but I'm also scared that it is. If so, it's foolish of me to continue even visiting sites like this, coward that I am. What an easy way to control someone without even lifting a finger against them.
