    Report Anti-Obamacare Email to the White House

    The White House - Blog Post - Facts Are Stubborn Things

    Yes, you too, can now participate in the NSA's surveillance of American's computers.

    Just in case the NSA is a little swamped, you can report anti-Obamacare emails to the White House! When the concentration camps are full, Death Squads will be dispatched immediately.

    There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.
    I can only imagine the apoplectic fits in the media had the Bush Administration posted something similar.

    This is the screen image I took from my computer:

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    Then there's that fun ToS from Cars.gov that Glenn Beck was pushing. Thing is, he so overstated the case that people's initial outrage turned into embarrassment, the kind that makes them defend this as being ok as they try avoid being associated with a fringe view.

    In case you missed it : (lots of YT videos) Beck's introduction made it sound like anyone going to the site was being monitored, recorded...see below...when only the dealers who needed to sign up for accounts to use the site ever saw the site ToS. I say ignore Beck and stick to what the Privacy Statement actually said. Doesn't matter to me if this was only for a limited user group, that's still a bullshit ToS. Text of that...

    Go figure. So was this was simply a mixup that needed correction or a sign of things to come. Now they're looking for recruits to report your neighbors for having the wrong view you say?

    Makes it all the more hilarious that "1984" was the book remotely deleted from the Amazon Kindle.
