Definition Changing for People's Privacy

A top intelligence official says it is time people in the United States changed their definition of privacy.

Privacy no longer can mean anonymity, says Donald Kerr, a deputy director of national intelligence. Instead, it should mean that government and businesses properly safeguards people's private communications and financial information. Kerr's comments come as Congress is taking a second look at the Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Act.

But that's the thing. I don't trust the government to properly safeguard anything. It's been shown repeatedly that government officials can and do use their position as The Watchmen for their own personal gain by stalking individual citizens. It's about laptops with hundreds of thousands of names accidentally left in cars and stolen. It's about hard copy files that are supposed to be destroyed turning up in city dumps. Thousands of people accidentally ending up on No Fly Lists.

Our government is an infosieve, the only thing that gets locked down for good is Dick Cheney.

By changing definitions of privacy, you are changing our definition of Freedom, which in turn is a redefinition of America. And that sir, will not fly.

AAAA-MEN! Fox watching the hen house for sure!
