The Arrogance Of The Privacy Invaders – Zuckerberg And Google

Last week the self-appointed guardians of Internet privacy – AKA the wolves guarding the hen-house – Google, FB’s Zuckerberg, and Microsoft, along with other techno giants, called upon the federal government to end it’s over-the-top surveillance of American citizens. They think it might interfere with the economic health of their industry.

Whut!? No really. Zuckerberg is upset. I guess he thinks the government might find out something scanning your fb pages before he has a chance to steal it and use it to sell ads on your friends fb pages. Ditto Google who apparently thinks that Uncle Sam is going to steal some important information from your emails before they get a chance to read through it first.

Talk about a case of the pot calling the kettle black. The arrogance of the techno privacy invaders is the real story here. The American people are well apprised of the illicit activities of folks like Zuckerberg and Google, and have expressed equal contempt and disdain for their illegal invasion of privacy along with that of the government.

No doubt. There are a lot of folks who don’t seem to understand that the invasion of privacy by the techno giants is potentially more damaging and injurious than the illegal surveillance by government. Some folks don’t get it at all. There might just be a time when ethics, morality, and integrity should rule the day in America’s big companies. Pollyannish though the idea may seem, big companies could actually attempt to do what’s rights ahead of being forced to do so by new laws which are actually unnecessarily redundant of already established laws.

So far, the only legislation Uncle Sam has come up with for the Internet, actually seems to throw a kink into the activities of average folks without offering them any protection against the pariahs and wolves. If Zuckerberg and Google, and Microsoft, can start a war of ethics with the federal government, that might be a good thing. I’d say it’s time for them both to clean up their act, and to start doing business based on what’s good for the American people. The Internet launch is over. They’ve had time to grow the business. The big boys need to make each other respect the constitution and follow the law.

    Romney Flip Flops On ACA

    Not surprising. The fact is Romney never did intend to repeal the ACA, and now he’s throwing the election to Obama. The ACA is unconstitutional. John Roberts set the stage to dissolve the constitution by ignoring the procedural order of the compulsory requirement. There is no universal healthcare act. Poor folks still won’t have health […]

    Profile Of Indoctrination And Corruption: Madison County Sheriff Blake Dorning

    A cops job is dangerous. True enough. But, take another looks a the facts. Since 1880, 22 law enforcement officials have been killed in Madison County. In the last ten years alone, I’ve counted about 15 unnecessary deaths that were the result of jailer depravity, or excessive force by cops. A that rate, the cops have killed around 200 people – almost all of which were innocent or guilty of nothing serious. A track record of 22 cops to 200 innocent citizens isn’t very good. In fact, it’s goddamn unacceptable.

    Yes! Virginia, I AM A Journalist!

    I remember more than eight years ago when I began discovering the Internet and all it’s potential. There was no such thing as a “blogger” back in those days. The best computers were likely still running on 400 cpus, or less, and the idea of audio and video were seriously hampered by immanently slow connection […]
