    This is why I have to censor myself so often in my posting. Sometimes I think: Damn! I wish I could type how I really feel. Maybe many other people feel this way. It is a public forum after all. Don't type anything that you wouldn't want the CIA to know about.

    Pretty simple really.

    "In-Q-Tel, the investment arm of the CIA and the wider intelligence community, is putting cash into Visible Technologies, a software firm that specializes in monitoring social media."

    "Visible crawls over half a million web 2.0 sites a day, scraping more than a million posts and conversations taking place on blogs, online forums, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter and Amazon. (It doesn't touch closed social networks, like Facebook, at the moment.) Customers get customized, real-time feeds of what's being said on these sites, based on a series of keywords."

    CIA branch invests in tech firm that monitors blogs, Twitter, social media Boing Boing
    If I put a sign in my window and it states something like INXS rocks (for example, I think the band sucks) and the CIA catches wind of it, than thats fine. The same principal applies here. When I put something online, I am publishing it for all to see given that the web is a medium for publishing.

    Let me know when they start getting into my password protected stuff without a subpoena. Then I will have a problem with it.

    2) However, this is not the same as spying on your cellphone conversations. But I have a solution for this too. When you are on your cell phone, use trigger words. Here are some examples:

    When talking to your wife: "Honey, you are the bomb".

    At a baseball game: "Damn, the Astros totally assassinated the Cubs today".

    At the supermarket: "Sorry, honey. I'm not getting any beans. They make my ass explode".

    When you're sick: "Can't come into work today. I'm doing a jihad on this flu I have".

    Get the picture? It's called "****ing with the government for ****s and giggles". But you are also sending a message that what you say on your cell phone, what you read at a library, and what you send in an email are none of the government's mother****ing business. If they really suspect you of something, then they had better damn well get a mother****ing warrant.
    tell that to the american citizans in gitmo who didn't recieve habius.

    I hope the CIA is appropriately edified by my thoughts on artichokes.

    This is the whole point of sites like Drudge and Prison Planet, I think.

    They make you so paranoid, you're afraid to go out and protest.

    Seriously.
