    So keep your phone’s wifi turned off. Then the battery doesn’t run down as quickly. Oh, and Nordstrom can’t track you.

    The Manning case has made us realize that the enemy is … the American people!

    Turn off the WiFi? What about the GPS? Stores can use that to track you as well. Answer? Turn off the phone completely, and take out the battery! Maybe then, just maybe, no one can track you? Of course, big Gov. will send in a swat team to see why your phone signal suddenly died.

    The obvious answer is only go out in public encased in some sort of electro-magnetic shielding. Stay properly grounded at all times, keep your outgoing transmissions to a minimum, and leave all jamming devices on at full power. You should be ok.

    24/7 observation by government and private business has been occuring since well before Mr. Obama or Mr. Holder took office. I think that’s Mr. Rall’s point.

    But skipcarlsen’s “point” is that Obama is to blame for everything bad ever.

    The ultimate goal of advertisers is to create a profile for each individual person based on their shopping, travel, and web browsing habits. Once this is created, anytime you approach a mall or shopping center, you can receive texts or push alerts advertising products you are most likely to buy (you don’t need wifi or gps for this, just have your phone on to receive a call). Eventually, electronic posters will run ads specifically geared to catch YOUR attention as you approach them. They believe this is what people want. And of course, the government has access to all of this gathered information as well.

    Very good, Ted. A few years ago one would not have understood what you meant but today this cartoon captures the zeitgeist very well.

    Then anyone calling you will be shunted to voice mail. Hope there is no emergency.

    Most people have no reason to do all of that. Why not make it illegal to casually monitor peoples progress instead?

    Lead works when you don’t have a portable Faraday Cage with you.

    @skipcarlsen

    They are the most recent ones in office, will you say the same when it is Republican?

    Just what they want you to think. “Why should I care?” No need to.
