the future, in case you just don't get it!

i'd love to think this is an exaggeration - from the ACLU site:
The government and corporations are aggressively collecting information about your personal life and your habits. They want to track your purchases, your medical records, and even your relationships. The Bush Administration's policies, coupled with invasive new technologies, could eliminate your right to privacy completely. Please help us protect our privacy rights and prevent the Total Surveillance Society.
Government programs such as MATRIX and Carnivore are destroying our privacy. We live in a democratic society and government-controlled data systems are a dangerous step toward establishing a 24-hour surveillance society.
Recently Northwest Airlines provided the names, addresses, travel plans and credit card numbers of its customers to a NSA project in complete violation of its own privacy policy. In another example, JetBlue provided information from over a million of its customers to the Transportation Security Administration, also in violation of its own privacy policy. this humorous flash video and tell Congress to protect your privacy now!

ACLU - Check it out!

sadly, there's no exaggeration to that -nor is it funny after all.

sorry i'm not tech-savvy enough to embed the video itself! i tried saving it, copying it, etc. I hope you'll take the time to view it (and think)!

thanks for reading. :)



  1. Scary, but what can we do? The site says it the program back in 4/2005 but they're trying start a bunch of similar state-run lil brother programs instead...

  2. yes, indeed, od. they're everywhere...! i'd say, fpr one: VOTE! :D


What's on your mind? I'd love to hear it. :)
