So, the Department of Homeland security has been forced once more by free thinking individuals to release a list of words and phrases that prompt digital investigation by the government on social networking sites. This release was caused by a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, thank God for these lawsuits and FOIA in general otherwise our government wouldn’t ever tell us anything. Shut up American and take what we give you. Aren’t you glad you don’t live in that totalitarian state…yet. Okay, anyway back to this magical list the government is using like some kind of fishing license.
The list is broken down into several categories of words. There are words that trigger investigations for Domestic Security issues, HAZMAT & Nuclear issues, Health Concerns & H1N1 issues, Infrastructure Security, Southwestern Border Violence, Terrorism, Weather/Disaster/Emergency, Cyber Security, and Douchebag Facebook Friend postings. Okay, I lied about that last one, there are no words to find Facebook douches. Besides, they are so easy to spot the government feels keeping track of them would be a waste of time and would take more man hours than attempting to locate a sober person at a NASCAR event. But this list of words designed to trigger investigations makes no sense. The list is disjointed and a seemingly strange connection of words that if used all by themselves would mean nothing. Say for instance I am talking about the wonderful dinner I made last night for the wife when I grilled some PORK. Yeah, that was a buzzword. Suddenly the government wants to know if I am planning to release some über uncool virus in America. All I can say is WTF? Why are you even looking at my page? I hope you have some kind of warrant, and not that Patriot Act BS because a warrant less search is a violation of my fourth Amendment rights.
Besides this baloney, what is the government doing monitoring my Facebook page anyway. I mean the dang thing is set on the highest privacy settings and tightest controls Facebook allows. I check it out every quarter to make sure they haven’t reverted it to being more open than a hippie commune every time they change the security policies anyway. So, again, I know people, most people, don’t leave their sites completely open especially people who are planning something nefarious like constructing a nuclear weapon in their garage or cheating on their significant other. Am I right? Of course I am. But I am sure the government had backdoored their way into our private lives that we put out there for our friends and others to see. Sounds kind of dumb when you say it that way doesn’t it?
Anyway, I have an experiment for you all to engage in, for several reasons. One, it seems like fun, two, to see if the government is actually monitoring our social media regardless of our privacy settings, and three, to tick them off and make more work for them. I don’t know how we will prove any of this unless you get a visit by some unfriendly people in bad suits. If you do, let me know. So, click on the link, read the list, pick four or five words from the list and string them together as a post. It should make for a very interesting week for big brother. Militia chemical avian gang cocaine spammer. Muhahahaha.
