JOHN MCAFEE: The NSA’s back door has given every US secret to our enemies

This comes to us via Rep. Thomas Massey’s Facebook page. Massey is one of the few good guys on Capitol Hill in our opinion. He says:

You value the Constitution? Live Free or Die? Okay. (Cartoon)

There has been a fair amount of anger from the Tea Party over the domestic spying of the NSA, but I have to admit, there should be more. The 4th Amendment is key to a free society.

Use These Words in Social Media and You May be Flagged by Authorities

This is not surprising. I think most relatively social media savvy people have just assumed that using some words and phrases would put one on the government’s radar. It seems a natural progression. As we live more and more of our lives online it is natural that the law “enforcers” would follow humanity into cyberspace.

Last summer the riots in England, reportedly spread via social media (not really Twitter or Facebook at least originally, but a proprietary program of Blackberry’s) put the powers that be on high alert.
