from the article..."In fact, according to the Electronic Privacy and Information Center, federal agencies have already negotiated agreements and contracts with social networking sites like Google, YouTube, SlideShare, Facebook, AddThis, Blist, Flickr and VIMEO to collect information on visitors for federal web sites. All of these private companies are known to have agreements with federal agencies, but the public has never seen them.
In public comments submitted to the Office of Management and Budget, EPIC notes it has obtained documents that show federal agencies have negotiated these contracts with the private sector in violation of "existing statutory privacy rights." Those agencies include: Department of Defense, Department of the Treasury, and the National Security Agency..."
Is this why my links were taken out the other day?
Do you mean on Hubpages? I actually do not believe all the conspiracy theories around Obama, and he is doing his best in a situation where the economy is not in the greatest shape.
Yes. I admitted it was inflammatory stuff i.e. the videos that were made...but the links to where the video makers got their information from included government sites.
If it was links in the forum we are told not to create threads with the express purpose of posting links... I'm sure it's more like that than politically motivated.
Were these posted on Hubpages? Maybe the links were taken out because these looked like promotional ones?
Sure hes got better things to do and more exciting places to be !like the rockies
But I hope someone influential maybe reads some of the articles here.
anyway, what do you think about what the link article said...had Google signed? is this reversing of a ban on tracking users, true?
why would they do that, and why shouldn't it bother people that it is done? We had enough of that with the previous administration.
Its pretty easy to track anyone,IP addresses etc.
Police have used it for a long time,(if need be) sorry Im not understanding this post.
The article is trying to make it all sound menacing, but this is something the government has to do to participate in Adsense.
If the government really wants this information, they can get it by a variety of means. Google would probably just hand it over, like they did in China.
This is a drop in the bucket compared to what the last administration did in terms of privacy rights, but Obama is a Democrat, so this must be part of the secret agenda of the UN, Trilateral Commission, the Illuminati, the Rothchilds, and the Greys...
sorry, you will need to explain a few things to me about what you said...
"...something the government has to do to participate in Adsense..."
what do you mean participate in Adsense?
"...just a symbolic issue with libertarian types..."
please explain what you mean by 'symbolic', and give me your definition of libertarian types?
"This is a drop in the bucket compared to what the last administration did in terms of privacy rights, but Obama is a Democrat, so this must be part of the secret agenda of the UN, Trilateral Commission, the Illuminati, the Rothchilds, and the Greys..."
are you serious about claiming it is the secret agenda of etc...?
I never know when people are kidding, and of course I have my own unique way of seeing things, so if you wouldn't mind explaining these points, I would like to understand your perspective. thx
I can't believe you left out the Freemasons. Duh!
The partisan warping of reality is just amazing. Some of the same people who spent the last 8 years tearing their hair out and screaming bloody murder at everything and anything the previous administration did are now the same people saying, "Aw, give the guy a chance! Let's all get together and support the President" no matter WHAT the administration does (or doesn't do).
The FBI already scans your email for key words, and the NSA already scans your phone calls for key words (and voice prints)…so the government signing a deal to LET GOOGLE AND OTHER ADVERTISERS track your movement on .gov websites like they do on EVERY OTHER WEBSITE IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE really isn’t something I’m going to pull my hair out about...
As someone said...
I'm more annoyed by businesses tracking me. I've noticed that ads are targeted to sites I visit now, even when I'm not on those sites. I do a lot of online research for articles, so if I'm researching, I don't know, buttons--then the next thing I know I'm swamped with button-buying opportunities. It's just a fine-tuning of how it was with advertising before the internet, but it's reached a truly creepy level.
Business tracking you is an annoyance issue. Yet government tracking you is a survival issue - not to say i buy into this particular conspiracy.
That's a good point.
Sometime I miss the old days when the most complicated piece of equipment in the house was a black rotary dial telephone.
But it's too late now.
It's never late to throw everything away and return to caves. The side effect (if enough people do this) is the reverse of global worming trend, cause we eat all worms
I saw a chocolate chip cookie recipe once that used dried earthworms. It won a contest for earthworm recipes.
Not appetizing, but good to know! (It might come to that!)
I'm more than annoyed at the idea of either businesses or the government tracking us, but - I hate to say it - I gave up the idea of privacy a long time ago (not that I think that's great, but the horse has out of the barn for a long time). These days we're lucky if we can our social security numbers from being posted on a big, public, Internet site.
Lisa, it's so true. Privacy is over. Anyone who wants to know just about anything about us can, if they put their minds to it. Lucky for me, there isn't anything that interesting about me and no one wants to know. But it is scary to think that if someone did, it would be hard to stop them.

Do you think only the guilty need fear surveillance?What do you think of the statement that people shouldn't fear surveillance programs if they have nothing to hide? In other words, innocent people have nothing to fear, while the guilty should have no right to privacy?

I'm not attempting to swat a hornet's nest here. I just keep hearing the refrain "no government is good government" or words to that effect.According to the tea-party folks I've spoken to government is wasteful, bloated, and ineffectual. Which makes me wonder; where do we draw a line? Is...
