The next person who tells someone on here that "Google is your Friend",
will have their testicles removed, and will be forced to eat them raw.
Google is a large company with lots of money who only wants more money
and provides the worst search engine. Google SUCKS!

It sounds fine to talk of resisting slavery [which I define off the top of
my head as as unchecked government power]. But all the NRA's beloved automa

with THEIR panoply of fun toys.
Besides, "If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear" is demo

REALLY discouraged with the mentality (not just picking on you) that no one
has to fear if they've done nothing wrong.
First, it's observably not the case. And most important: Our system of laws
says "Make 'em prove it" NOT "Guilty till proven innocent." That's why, f
or example, a Zimmerman can walk.

For the last few weeks I'd been meaning to write up a "dictionary" of how t
he NSA translates certain words, completely different from the way any othe
r English speaker does, in order to argue that what it does with its survei
llance programs is "legal" under the law.
I hadn't gotten around to it because every time I started, it seemed like
there was more breaking news. Thankfully Jameel Jaffer and Brett Max Kaufma
n from the ACLU beat me to it, and put together a fantastic NSA lexicon, wh
ich highlights how the NSA has simply changed the meaning of many basic Eng
lish words in order to argue that their efforts are, in fact, legal and abo
You can and should read the full and detailed explanations that Jaffer and
Kaufman have put together for each word, but I'm going to take their same l

mails, but not when we access all the data about who you talk to, where you
are and what you do.

RELEVANT: Everything. It might become relevant in the future, thus it's

I've done nothing wrong that I need to worry about, but everytime google
gets involved, it slows down my internet use, and it tracks me for
annoying advertising. And if you think Google is bad, facebook is much
worse. FB reads the contents of your hard drive. Because of that
readon, I refuse to use Facebook, and even then, I never do any type of
financial stuff with my computer. In fact when Ebay stopped accepting
mail in payments (checks / money orders), I stopped using Ebay. I refuse
to give out my credit card info online.
That's not quite what happened. <sigh> It always amuses me how your view
of the world is always slightly distorted, like a funhouse mirror.
His former employer turned him in after reviewing his computer logs. Given
the time-honored tradition of "former disgruntled employees" seeking revenge
on the companies that fired them (often for very good cause) this was
probably a justifiable search. Employers should do everything they can to
make sure their employees stay properly gruntled.
Booby G. you mean that YOUR view of the world is NOT distorted? Oh my
God, you poor, poor P.L.L.C.F. minion. Those of your ilk have minds that
are like a combination roller coaster and house of horror. I pointed out
a story posted to The Web and you claim I made it up. Your
mind is definitely zooming up and down the coaster's tracks. I know you
have fun inside that skull of yours. Did you and Trayvon share some
