Okay! Okay! We get it! Or if you don’t by now, you probably should. You may have seen the movies… “Enemy of the State”, “Eagle Eye”, “Spy’s Like Us”… alright, the last one isn’t really what we’re talking about. As far as we can think back, the Government has been spying on people – American People! Wire taps, nighttime surveillance, espionage and covert affairs, it’s all part of the game. Did you really think when you first got online that your every move couldn’t be tracked? Did you not know that using a cellphone or smartphone to snap pictures, post to Twitter and Facebook and comment on Instagram and Pinterest and every other thing you do as part of your mundane existence can be and probably is being recorded by someone? Is it ignorance or stupidity that has created a society of socially inept mongoloids who feel the need to share intimate moments and pointless blathering to so-called ‘friends’ and acquaintances because their own lives are so shallow they have to hide behind a computer or smartphone.
Sure, we know that some would argue social media has led to worldwide revolutions of like minded free spirits, but it also has led to violence, mistrust and defamation. Lives have been ruined and destroyed because of social media and the unregulated and unrestrained ignorance of some of its users. We know people are genuinely idiots. We know that better judgement after a half bottle of tequila is always questionable. WE know that the government is spying on us! So what are you worried about? Are you afriad that your last call to your BFF is going to reveal that you really like Billy instead of Johnny? Or are you afraid your plot to blow up the White House and spill poison in the Hudson River will be intercepted?
Look! WE know the government is watching. We know the phone companies, internet service providers, coffee shop Wi-Fi and office networks are watching. Big Brother existed a long time ago and nobody had the balls the stop it. Your politicians know and have known for years – they’re in on it! They know that a word cannot be spoken without someone hearing the conversation. They know that every email, memo, dangling participle and whispered rumor are all true – so you better lie your way through and hope that your scandal gets overshadowed by the next bigger scandal.
As an average citizen, you should expect some privacy – if it were 1900 and you didn’t have a phone, electricity, running water and a car. Get over it. Are you concerned the government is going to bust down your door because you stumbled onto a porn website (every day for the last 3 years) or posted blasts against the way politicians are scamming America and adding to the decline of Western Civilization? Well you should! Especially if you are trolling kiddie porn sites and actually planning a plot to kill, harm and destroy other people, buildings and property. Look, there are enough wacko’s in this world who think the world revolves around them and Ala or God Almighty chose them specifically to cleanse the world of insolent devil pigs and raise them to heaven with flocks of virgins and all hearts desires. Bullshit! If you’re crazy, you’re crazy. The decency of standards and ethics has declined over the years and Americans have fallen into the trap of acceptability. If you want privacy, build a rocket and travel into space and then keep going…. and take your nutjob friends with you for the ride.
