    20 years from now, school children will be reading about the concept of privacy in their history "books."

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
    Ronald Reagan

    This has got to stop. If we don't stop it, they'll take everything, and technology is obviously going to become so advanced that if we don't step in and start regulating it to make sure it conforms to the constitution, they'll do whatever they want and still carry on as if it's legal. I'm not advocating violence in any way, not just because the government will try to use it to discredit us as mindless animals, but because that's what we'll become. The means we employ determine the results we get. That's why we have to legally and methodically step in and take back control of our country, as a people, and prosecute the criminals (this country is filled with them, and most of them are walking around free in unchecked positions of power). We need to bring our country back to what it was supposed to be. The last 12 years have been some of the worst years in our country's history. Not just because of what's happened, but because of how we responded (or failed to respond). These fuckers walked all over us. They spit in our face. A lot of us went along with it, some of us still are. But anyone can be fooled - the only shame is continuing to be fooled when you know better.


    This might sound like a big job, but we can do it easily if we work together and stop letting the government divide and manipulate us. We need to start by getting educated and drop the bullshit, be honest about what we know is going on regardless of whether it makes us uncomfortable or makes us rethink our views on how the world operates. America, as it should be, has room for all of us - it's not Republican vs. Democrat, red state vs. blue or North vs South, etc, it's we the people against the government and those that control it. If we don't do the job, they're more than happy to step in and rob everything that we've fought for for the past 200 years. Sorry to get all serious, but I had to get this out there. Think of the country we'll live in with the technology that'll exist in 20 years. The government will make freedom seem like treason and they'll shut up, lock up or kill anyone who doesn't submit. And they'll still call it freedom.


    If we don't start doing this now, it won't be long before we won't even have the option.

    everyone should program their TVs to watch the yule log loop as much as possible. if enough people do it, some network will give it a prime time slot. Do that often enough with infomercials and test patterns and the networks and advertisers will lose confidence in the results. Verizon only wants to do it because of perceived value. remove that and they wont bother.

    There is no privacy today if you use Android/Google.

    BTW All email / telephone are monitored by the government/Echelon.

    I personally installed the 4000CPU Sun/Oracle server that is used by the Swedish government to monitor all email/cell phone. And Sweden is just a shit-country compare to US.

    Most will not be reading about it. The concept of privacy will be removed from any official educational material.

    After reading those quotes one will see Reagan was almost as big a bullshitter as Howard.

    This is a guy who ran a war on drugs with his public "overt" government and ran wars in Central America and elsewhere with his secret "covert" government. All the while railing against government in general and importing weed and coke to a military base in Arkansas.

    While all that is going on his wife was consulting astrologers and influencing public policy.

    Today's generation of kids don't view privacy the way older people do. They are so entrenched with social media they either don't care about potentially giving away all of their privacy or they are ignorant to it.

    They can listen in to me bitching about how much I hate paying for a "smart Phone data plan fee" and about how Google is superior to them in every way

    Easily, my All-Time favorite Reagan quote!

    My 2nd is favorite Reagan line is: "Govt is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end & no sense of responsiblity at the other."

    Their laws prohibit information leaving the country. It's a ridiculous law but thats part of the way they enforce it.

    If you step back and look at history, real liberty like we HAD here was only a speck in time.
