I won’t go back! “They” can’t make me. Or, can they?”

shocked-old-lady1.pngI don’t use the term “take my country back” anymore. When I said it, I meant “take back control for the people”, but current events shows me that it means “take the country back to the bad old days”. I do not agree!

In North Carolina, a group that claims to represent  the moral majority has been fighting legislation aimed at creating barriers to voter participation, even though the data on voter fraud seems anecdotal and not based on official numbers.

Texas is the most recent case study in backwards movement in women’s health. The most outrageous example is the law that makes all facilities that provide abortion services have to meet the standards of an Ambulatory Surgical Center, so they are thrilled. This is not medically necessary. This is an expensive ploy. So, the Mexican abortion services providers are also thrilled. The law hangs a Scarlet A around the neck of all women.

NSA Surveillance is another area where we the people have lost control.  Yesterday, the House voted 217 - 205 to continue bulk surveillance of all phone records, regardless.  "The public was not just kept in the dark about the Patriot Act and other secret authorities," Senator Wyden of Oregon said. "The public was actively misled.

Are you ready to go back? Is there something you would LIKE to go back to? Are there other things that look like a giant step backwards, and not for the better? Share your thoughts with me and Debilyn Molineaux today:

The latest testing has not shown any radiation on the Oregon coast...

We don't know where it's going... or else the tests are lying to us. We don't know.

No one is willing to pay for investigative journalism anymore...
[12:25:41] 
Press 1 for Democracy
that's because no one wants to be informed
[12:25:57] 
JosephPomponio
I agree
[12:26:18] 
JosephPomponio
I agree again
[12:26:20]

It doesn't have to be done by private sector
[12:32:52] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
It depends on if the data is centralized or dispursed
[12:33:04] VitoEsposito has logged out.
[12:33:23] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
Agreed...the gov't could centralize it and then farm it out...
[12:33:34] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
I'm opposed to the centralization of the data.
[12:33:51] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
I need to ask "what is meta-data?" to make sure we are on the same page...
[12:35:29] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
I love that Howard is an expert on this...
[12:41:53] 
Coffee Party USA
:
data mining used to be a manual thing. Now e-mining!

One thing to remember is that criminals and terrorists are traveling at the speed of the internet...

What is our expectation of privacy?
[12:44:02] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
I have a pretty high expectation...and people keep telling me to just give it up.
[12:44:52] 
Coffee Party USA
:
never!
[12:46:10] 
JoyceLouden
To be on line, and expect privacy is a tough one.
[12:47:18] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
I don't expect any email to be private...it's like a newspaper article because I have no control over what the recipient does.
[12:47:34] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
But transactions, phone calls, businesses, etc., should be private.
[12:48:09] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
Even browsing, should be private, in my opinion.
[12:50:15] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
Joe is right... and having worked in advertising, I know that marketers have no problem violating my privacy.
[12:50:47] 
Coffee Party USA (Cohost)
Anyone know what the European model of privacy is?
[12:59:14]
