    Technology is the 2nd most dangerous weapon.

    You mean you can't read them yet?




    You do know NOTHING you do is private anymore, right?


    I have nothing to hide, (well, illegally that is) but for those who do, you WILL get caught someday!

    The corporates have been doing this for years. Why should it bother me if the government does to find criminals? Other than the fact there are some criminals within the government.

    If this is what's gone public, I wonder what they have that isn't public knowledge.

    I think that anyone truly fearful that the government is going to know our thoughts might want to stop posting on boards like these.

    OTOH, if one want to insure that the government is getting a sense of the zietgiest of the nation, then posting in places like this guarantees that your imput is in the mix.

    My point?

    Every word we write is stored for review, folks.

    I don't doubt that technology is, or will be, devised to help the government (much like Santa) to make a list about who is naughty or nice.

    The government may know that you're innocent, but the question they keep asking themselves is this:

    Just what exactly are the people innocent of?

    Personally I think it is facinating. I'm not afraid of what the .gov knows since the IRS has info on all of us going back, in some cases, decades. That data alone can build a profile sufficient to eliminate you as a suspect in most cases.

    I would not mind seeing such technology in court. You have the right to remain silent. But if you choose to speak, you don't have the right to lie.
