Knowing that Big Brother is watching does not affect my social network comments
I am more careful about my comments knowing that big brother is watching the networks.
I don't make nearly as many comments as I used to due to the Big Brother DHS internet policies.
I stopped commenting about politics due to the DHS big brother spying.
I never comment about politics but this still concerns me.
I never comment about politics so I don't care.

THE QUESTION IS:

Does Knowing Big Brother is Watching Affect Your Social Network Comments?

Excerpts:


The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) has been leading a valiant effort to reveal the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) Big Brother policies which include spying on Americans’ activity on social networks, especially people who express dissenting opinions.

“The DHS testimony, as well as the documents obtained by EPIC, indicate that the agency is monitoring constantly, under very broad search terms, and is not limiting that monitoring to events or activities related to natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or man made disasters,” McCall explained to lawmakers. “The monitoring is designed to be over-broad, and sweeps in large amounts of First Amendment activity. The DHS has no legal authority to engage in this monitoring.”

The manual that is used to determine what the agency is looking for is found HERE.

They have called for Congress to conduct an investigation into if these same practices are going on within the ranks of other government agencies – which I think is a given.

It seems especially likely when one considers the Air Force’s call for so-called persona management software, along with their call to create a worldwide “social radar” which would make the DHS program look like child’s play.

There are many more details regarding what has been discovered about the DHS internet spying since the hearings and the entire article can be found HERE.

    YET .. why is the msm strangely SILENT about this .. (IF they actually did reporting .. real investigative journalism .. they'd be up 24/7 spilling this story all over the place .. but then again -- especially if it was done by another Administration .. )

    (AND there's no attempt to prosecute the ones who signed all these memos either .. or wrote those policies .. or enabled it ..)

    I step up my game when threatened. Obama is a communist, Marxist, narcissistic traitor. Congress is so corrupt and they should all be jailed or hanged for various crimes against the people they represent. Muslims are terrorists. No, maybe the little lady whose kids go to your kids school looks normal, but if the Taliban stood before her she's going to side with them rather than fight with us.

    Department of Home Security is run by a crazy, ugly, dyke bitch and they can come and get me. I'm home now but I'll be out later this evening.

    Why should we worry about it now?.....this 'spying' on the Public started at least back to the 70's......probably further back than that. The only solution that I can see is a MAJOR OVERHAUL of The System........nothing else! All the nit-picking "tempests in a teapot"(no pun intended) that are thrown-out by the MSM are just part of the Game of diverting attention away from The Solution!

    I've been making my views known for years. There would be no point in hedging on them now, but when I'm on messenger with friends talking about more personal things, I'm conscious of the possibility that what I'm typing may be recorded in a data bank or that key words may trigger some type of monitoring.

    Going to the documentation asap, just Wanna reply first;

    Knowing that someone is not just listening, but is taking notes of what I say/write does have an effect upon whither I write/speak, what I write/say, or if I remain silent. There are moments when silence is best, and those moments are of tactical or strategic import.
    However, the base premise should be thus; We will all die, but while we live, our lives MUST be the struggle for perfection, for happiness.

    Is enslavement perfection?
    Is fear, happiness?

    Throw them away, as being unworthy of your time or effort. Stand when the time comes, and be justified.

    I figure if they're going to eavesdrop on my phone calls to my family, spy on my posts on SH, monitor everything about my life, by now they know I am a capitalist, that I place a high value on the Constitution, that I hate communists, and that I vote for the most Conservative candidates.

    Nothing I say at this point will save me from being tossed in a FEMA cell, so I may as well exert my 1st Amendment rights while the shreds of the Constitution are still in play.

    Look they would put who they consider leaders in that summer palace. The rest they would reeducate in some makeshift Gulag somewhere. Remember only 10% are leaders, the rest followers. Make the leaders disappear and the followers will bend.
