Big Brother is Watching...Get Over it
You've heard it said Colleen and I are gadget geeks, but if you haven't tried "Google Earth" yet, let me just say download it right now. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Oh my goodness, this thing is miraculous. I can SEE my old house. I can find Dana Street Coffee and Pho Hoa of Mountain View (my former hangouts) I can even see the treehouse my kids built in the backyard. Of course, privacy as we know it, is at an end. Which brings me to a point. I'm curious about people who are worried about the government "spying" on us. Are you kidding me? The grocery store knows more about you than the government. Target marketing put an end to your freedoms a long time ago. They can find out what kind of toilet paper you buy, why not know if you're a terrorist? Where's the negative here for us?
Here's the thing, what am I doing that I have to worry about the government coming after me? Even the things that aren't especially great about me, like my People Magazine Subscription and my penchant for bad reality TV is no secret. Heck, call Tivo, they'll tell you what I'm up to. And guess what? No one cares.
Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand this fight for "privacy" when it was already given away a long time ago. The credit score people know more about you than the FBI!
