Bloviating Zeppelin: Homeland Security Monitoring THE DRUDGE REPORT -- Homeland Security, Monitoring YOU?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Homeland Security Monitoring THE DRUDGE REPORT -- Homeland Security, Monitoring YOU?


I'm sorry, but this is getting rather silly.


More Gub'mint DoubleSpeak contained below (from The Atlantic Wire):
It's unclear exactly why, but the Department of Homeland has been operating a "Social Networking/Media Capability" program to monitor the top blogs, forums and social networks online for at least the past 18 months. Based on a privacy compliance review from last November recently obtained by Reuters, the purpose of the project is to "collect information used in providing situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture.

Here's where I'll be Homeland Security Blunt for a moment.

Any government or administration fears two major points when it detects loss of control, possible insurrection or popular disagreement with a paradigm:

1. An armed populace, and
2. An informed populace, via communications; i.e., the internet

You're seeing both of these venues placed under the microscope for diminishment or removal by our current federal government. And I'm not wearing tinfoil right now. I'm merely stating the truth.

So: Homeland Security monitoring The Drudge Report? I am not placing myself into the Shocked Category. Perhaps even monitoring me? You? Who knows?

Because, apparently, the federal government needs to "collect information used in providing situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture." Wondrous DoubleSpeak, yes?

And every day, the frog in the boiling pot gets his water temperature increased just a bit.

As a parting shot, think about this: how many times per day do you think you're captured on someone's camera, at work, in the street, at the ATM, in your bank, in any number of places?

And up to now -- have you even thought about your lack of privacy?

Who's Big Brother now?

I am sure many of us are watched, especially the conservative blogs, not much we can do.

My blog is public domain, but they are crossing the line if they are monitoring my Facebook page. That's invasion of my privacy and space.

So, sick of this crap from Washington.

I expect Leticia is correct. They are likely watching conservative blogs at a much greater rate and much more closely than the other side. Remember, we are all on Janet Napolitano's list for all the reasons--you know--extremist right wing radicals, bible thumpers, gun toters, believers of the Constitution, and all the other things we believe in. I just figure I am in REAL GOOD COMPANY on that list! Screw them!!!!!!!
