    I find it interesting that those heavily into posting to, or reading the mass of “social media”, are suddenly afraid of the cat they let out of the bag. It isn’t a horse, but Pandora.

    Rip van Winkle is waking up.

    Well, we already knew that the idea of “you’re either with us, or you’re a terrorist”, and “if you don’t support the president, you are supporting terrorism” went out the window on 1/20/09.

    But how did people not know (unless they didn’t want to know) that this has been around for years and years. How is this something new?

    I saw a comment from a 40-something. He(?) said that the young people post everything on Facebook: videos of everyone with whom they’ve had an intimate relationship, what they eat, what they drink, and what they smoke. So, since they hope that EVERYONE has seen their Facebook page, they have no objection to the government being one of those who looked.


    He said that old geezers (e.g., moi) never use computers, never get phone calls (our children have forgotten us), and, since there is no record of our existence, don’t care if the government is tracking every phone call and Internet transmission.


    So (he said) it was only those in their ‘40s who had the slightest objection to PRISM.


    Speaking as an old geezer who uses the Internet, I fear I must point to the New York Times Mr Blow, who did the graphics for a survey: almost everyone objects to almost every government intrusion, except for Facebook homepages and IRC chats. Anyway, old geezer that I am, I object to the government’s monitoring everything I do or say.


    But no matter. The government’s gonna do it anyway. And most people fully support that monitoring, to catch terrorists BEFORE they strike.

    This cartoon is pure genius! It definitely catches the conversation of the moment.

    Makes sense… but there is a difference between that and what the NSA does. What the idiot on Facebook does is like leaving money on a park bench and then acting surprise when you go back and it’s not there. What the NSA does is like sneaking into your bank account.

    The libs are still defending The Leader because Dubya was doing it. It’s wrong, no matter who is or has done it!

    I don’t defend it. You’re right, it’s wrong. However, I don’t understand why it’s a scandal now when it’s the same policy and actions that have gone on for years.

    Because it isn’t a republican in the White House.

    I really don’t understand the privacy concern. Anyone can look at anything I have done in my life and I wouldn’t care. It would seem to me only those who have something that they really need to hide would be worried. Anyway, if you are really worried about privacy, don’t use the Internet.
