Nearing the end of the week. V. tired. Here’s some pin-up Captain America. For me. For you. For Freedom.
The largest bummer about these kind of news stories isn’t that our government is routinely wiping their bum-bum with what we consider to be our rights. The largest bummer is that we usually read this stories aghast, and then go back about watching reality shows and eating cheesy products. Myself included.
The airwaves are not safe! We are going to need to take our communications to broad-band telepathy. You know, we must don our aluminum plated salad bowl helmets and transmit that way. ‘Cause the rest of the avenues are being watched. Legal or not.
Not cool, man! Iran has blocked Google. One of those moments where I take a momentary reprieve from bemoaning the happenings at home, and praise the U.S for at least letting me look up pictures of Jennifer Lawrence.
Police state, wee! New Orleans was planning on using security drones to police the Super Bowl this next February. It didn’t come to pass, but it is a delicious look into the quiet erosion of homeland freedom and the implementation of such measures. Shh! Go to sleep.
Fuck yes! If we can have bacon-flavored ice cream, I see no good reason we can’t have candy corn-flavored Oreos. This is America, god dammit! Where if we don’t have XXXL t-shirts, the terrorists have clearly won. Don’t eat these to appease your fat ass. Eat these for freedom.
Wikileaks exposes “TrapWire”, government spy network using regular surveillance cameras. Suffers DDoS.
Welcome to the wonderfully quiet Police State, folks. Wikileaks has expose “TrapWire”, a government program that uses ordinary surveillance cameras to spy on the reg. In response, the site has suffered a rather massive DDoS. Sadly, you know what? Shit is unnecessary. The average United States citizen don’t give no fucks, as long as they have their fried foods and reality television.
The Department of the Navy must have been watching some Dateline. Their latest and greatest way to spend tax payer money is to employ a company to boat a shitload of used gaming consoles overseas, and then till those consoles for user information. Have to get those terrorists’ information from them video game killer-builder machines.
Good news for everyone who doesn’t really care about their internet freedom! Limits have been laxed and now even people who are not suspected of being terrorists (which has become such a flimsy word I think even my Nana could be argued to be one) can have their data mined and stored and gazed at by the Man with uncomfortably little restrictions.
All you need to know about the Pirate Bay being blocked in the UK can be learned from watching the first “Pirates of the Carribean” movie where a plucky band of pirating assholes lead by Johnny Depp take on the British-People-Guys and their colonizing brigades.
I can’t be wrong about this, can I?
