    So-called ‘conservatives’ are livid that government is spying on citizens, since Obama is president.


    When Bush was president, they were perfectly happy with it. You know, tracking terrorists and such.


    Corporate spying on citizens? So-called ‘conservatives’ are perfectly happy with it. You know, Good For Business and such.

    There are ways to minimize corporate spying.

    Which most people don’t know. And ways to spy on you that you don’t know.

    They seem to be happily corn holing each other.

    We know when you are sleeping, We know when you’re awake"
    And we know every keystroke you make, so we know what targeted advertising to put on your computer so we can sell you the MOST unneeded, expensive crap this Xmas, which will be replaced by the next version of the Unneeded expensive crap Version 2.0 in 6 Months…

    Aye, and the fool says “I’m not worried, I’m not doing anything wrong!” Fool! You, and I, have no standing to know or decide what’s “right” or “wrong.” THAT’S Big Brother’s prerogative, and he can change his mind about it at any time. On the very most fundamental level, without privacy you are not free.

    Merry Thanksgiving!

    Not exactly true. I have a customer who has no cellphone, no internet, no computer, nothing to “connect to the modern world.” She lives in a very rural area, has a checking account only because her employer demands direct deposit and pays cash otherwise. She has no debit card or credit cards. In other words she is a complete Luddite with no digital trail. To demonstrate how scary corporate profti-from-YOUR-PERSONAL-information data intrusion is I did a google search of just her first and last name. For this woman who does nothing online, uses no credit card, has no cellphone tracker there were a dozen entries willing to sell me personal information about her. Of the two I clicked on for demonstration purposes I knew her place of birth, her date of birth, her current address, her last address, her children, and much more.
    Sure most of it was public record but my point is here was a woman that for all intents and purposes was “off the grid” in regards to modern conveniences and technology but there was an abundance of personal information available from FOR PROFIT corporations. There are minimal ways to reduce corporate spying. If they want to know something about you, there is someone who has that digital information who is willing to sell it to them.

    So very true.
    Several years ago, I googled my own name, and was shocked at how many sites came up! Most were agencies, who sell this info to anyone. They post some info free, such as where & when you lived. One such site listed a town in which I never resided! After several attempts finding their telephone number, I protested to them that they listed at least one piece of incorrect data, and I asked to see what they had on me. NO, they replied, I could give them my credit card number to see. I firmly demanded that I had a right to see what they were posting about me, and they refused. Today, with many more such sites, prospective employers are referring to them more often! And I (we) cannot verify the accuracy of their “reports” without ponying up their fee! What a brave, new world we now live in!

    Big Brother loves you!
    Big Brother is in control!
    Big Brother knows what to do!
    Big Brother knows what’s best.
    Big Brother will take care of you!
    Big Brother is wise and is able to out think people, even in areas he has little training in like the military.
    .
    What is wrong with the above?
    .
    Replace Obama’s name on all of the above, some reporter or other has said all of them when the President first took office.
    .
    We know that is not true now, that is why you must be able to make your decision yourselves, not some bureaucrat in Washington. You need tools to make those decisions, the best way to have those tools is to keep more of your own money and education. An education that is not decided by a Union, bureaucrats or both.

    Yeah, what decision did you get to make about invading Iraq?
