Folks, I gotta tell you, I’m about sick of the Big Brother silliness. Big Brother has been around a long long time; longer than most of us still alive. The United States first met Big Brother in 1936 when social security was inacted and we were required to file for social security numbers. Now, think about that. Every newborn in this country is now required to have a social security number almost from birth. That social security number is used for EVERYTHING. Here are just a few of things it’s used for: applying for a job, getting a driver’s license, medical forms, mortgages and credit cards.
In addition to your SSN, there’s the internet and you’re not anonymous by any means. How many of you have gmail accounts? How many of you have used Google earth and search?
Now considering all this, why the heck would you buck at something that might give us at least notice before another 9/11? We’ve already lost our privacy and gave it up willingly. National security agencies aren’t interested in you. They’ve already got you.
Trust me, I’ve put this to the test. I have used the security buzz words in conversation and haven’t heard the first knock on my door yet. Nor have I seen unmarked cars on stakeout here… although they were staking out a next door neighbor for something totally unrelated to national security. Heck, I’ve even tried to stir up stuff on the net with the result of nada, zip monitoring of my activities.
So, whose privacy are you protecting? Yours or potential terrorists’? Reality bites sometimes.
