JULIAN SEZ...





















If the following statement from Julian Assange is correct, the intelligent agencies of Corporate Global will be sifting through a close to infinite supply of self-indulgent, misspelled irrelevancy. I try to imagine what misconceptions they might glean about me from Facebook or Doc40. What would a NSA analyst make today of the odd resonances I feel about the death of Yvette Vickers – or the Frozdick family for that matter?

“Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has leved an accusation that Facebook is "the most appalling spy machine that has ever been invented." Assange said he believes Facebook is a giant database of names and records about people, maintained voluntarily by its users but developed for U.S. intelligence to use. “Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook, they are doing free work for United States intelligence agencies, and building this database for them,” Assange said. While Assange doesn’t claim that Facebook is actually run by U.S. intelligence agencies, the fact that they have access to its records is — in his view — dangerous enough. “Now, is the case that Facebook is run by U.S. intelligence? No, it’s not like that. It’s simply that U.S. intelligence is able to bring to bear legal and political pressure to them,” he said.” (Click here for more and a video)

And if you beleive any and of all of your electronic communication isnot or cannot be monitored you are living in a different universe.
I only half-jaokingly insert words like "CIA, THIS IS A JOKE. Humans make jokes and are satirical" I have no illusions of privacy

the Frozdick family alone might qualify you as too weird for Guantanamo.

It's no harder for them to get Facebook to "voluntarily" submit records under the pretense of Homeland Security than for any other outfit, be it celphone providers or libraries. Scumbags.

I've long ago assumed two things about the intelligence-gathering apparati:
One, they can find out anything they want about me from a vast number of sources, including facebook
Two, they don't care, and I don't care. If they have some kind of software that red-lights seditious phrases, thought-dreams, subversive patterns of internet searches, or malcontents in general, the only time it will matter is when the shithole is teetering on complete collapse and they decide to launch troops to seek out ex-hippie commie pinko anti-Fox News subversives like myself. As Ethan Edwards and Buddy Holly used to say, that'll be the day.

My sentiments entirely, HCB.
