Googly, Googly… revisited… Facebooky… Facebooky…

How is anyone surprised by the “Big Reveal”, in every entendre imaginable, from Facebook that ALL OF YOUR INFORMATION WAS USED IN A WAY THAT YOU DON’T LIKE… AND THEY TOOK YOUR FRIENDS INFO TOO… BECAUSE YOU LET THEM.

How is the news?

We’ve been talking about this for over 5 YEARS!  It’s now 032118…

And, I’m always fashionably late to the party!

Where have you been?

(Update 091113: Yesterday, Google lost a similar decision to the one below.  It was on Appeal before the Ninth Circuit.  The Folks at EPIC are happy… but doesn’t the this story make more sense and a seem little less conspiratorial now that we know the NSA has been collecting all of our data and doing so with the aid of our allies?  Originally Posted 072712)

“In April, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission fined Google, saying the company “deliberately impeded and delayed” its investigation into Street View.

It’s unclear what, if any, penalties would be imposed on Google by Britain’s ICO or regulators in any of the 10 other jurisdictions in which the company had wrongly retained Street View data.

“We need to take a look at the data… There’s all sorts of questions we need to ask,” an ICO spokesman said, speaking on condition of anonymity because office rules prohibit him from being named in print.”

The above quote and where I decided to begin and end it may seem a little confusing, but there is a point…

Today we find out that Google has not destroyed/deleted all of the street view info it was caught collecting in Britain. Keep in mind, when I say “street view info” that includes wi-fi networks and names, e-mail addresses and various and sundry other items of information having nothing to do with a street, or the view from it.

Here’s the fun part however… Britain’s regulators, the IOC, are very “upset”. There has been aplenty “tough” language directed at Google for this blatant breach. Yes… they are terribly, terribly upset don’t you know.

While Google has apologized, it is clearly not enough for the IOC.  In all fairness it’s not enough for me either but here’s the punch line; the IOC is demanding to see the information for “forensic analysis”.  Seriously… You Brit’s are Brilliant!  “Yes, yes, I will need to see all the pornography you have so I can determine if it is actually pornography.  I will also need plenty of time to review it… alone…”

So why did I take the above quote from where I did?

Without question Google was harvesting the same information here in the U.S. that it was in Britain.  No doubt about it.  And the U.S. is watching closely what is going on across the pond… very closely.  But why?

If the IOC is successful in gaining access to the Google information for “forensic analysis” because Google has been very, very bad… then U.S. regulators will not be far behind the Google spanking bandwagon.  What red-blooded, privacy cherishing, citizen wouldn’t want Google to be punished for collecting a bunch of info it shouldn’t have?

Well… this one.  If punishing Google requires the government seeing all of the intel, I would prefer Google to get away with it and we can deal with them in the market place.   Think about this for a second, who would you rather have possessing your secrets, a private company answerable to the legal system or a government answerable to no-one?

The monster under my bed has always scared me the most by whispering “don’t worry…  I’m from the government and I’m here to help…”.  Now he’s muttering “googly… googly..” and my parents still don’t believe me.

Your freedom is directly correlated to your ability to live your life anonymously.  If you care.

Apparently, like the rest of the planet, I may just elect to drink myself to sleep.  Unlike the rest of the planet I will only do it late at night… straight from the bottle… in front of a full length mirror… crying…

NSA disguised itself as Google to spy, say reports  (link added 091213)


Well as long as you Admit it…

It’s OK.

NSA looks at FAR, FAR more people’s data than previously disclosed.

So…

No Problem then.

We’ll just forget about all this and start going to movies again.

(Could the investigation of this Domestic Spying be why so many Governmental Department heads are suddenly “retiring”?)

 

 


Is There any Question Left?

Is there any question left that the Bill of Rights has been completely destroyed?

If you think you had a Right to Privacy (The very First Amendment) protected by you Right to not be subject to Unreasonable Search and Seizures (The Fourth Amendment) you should revisit the issue.

The Department of Homeland Security has decided it has The Right to search, copy and keep everything on your Laptop, Phone etc.  Actually… the study states they can continue to do this.

Full Article: here.

(Update 060613: NSA received phone records for ALL Verizon phone customers.

The NSA seizes every conversation, text, picture sent, person called, message to loved ones… everything… for every Verizon customer.

And that’s just what we know so far.  Elitist Progressives like Senator Lindsey Graham (R – South Carolina) believe there is no problem with keeping every American under constant surveillance.)

How much more Folks?  Watching the Corruption and Those Defending it for all to see… What exactly is the Tipping Point?

Why do We Need the DHS?

Why do we need half of these fools?

When is it enough?


The Press who Love Too Much.

Battered Press Syndrome his Horrible.
They’re Victims of an Abuser they Love, an Evil they hold close.

They feel Trapped in the very relationship that is doing them irreparable harm.

In despair they look around for safety…

They don’t know where to turn and live in fear of retribution should they do anything to get away.

We watch this day in and day out from the outside, helpless…
We try to understand when they cry on our shoulder after yet another horrific episode. We listen through the sobs as they recount the stories of abuse while also proclaiming their love of the very Demon responsible. We attempt to grasp why they refuse to leave the side of the one who clearly hates them so much.

We encounter the One responsible every day, and we hold our tongue in fear of the harm that could come to our friend… and possibly us.

We want to let The Press know that we are all in this together. We want them to know that we Care.

But down deep, even though they are being abused, the abuse they have dealt us in the past secretly keeps us from being able to say it truthfully.

Sadly, these relationships often end tragically… violently… with a path of destruction and innocent victims strewn as far as the eye can see.

They are on their own.

They know it.

They will stay with Him… because they Love too Much.
