Long story short: the government is spying on you regardless of what language you use. Cheers.

Censor Yourself

When you start down the road of self censorship, then you've already lost a big chunk of your liberties.
I am not, will not, and never will "censor" what I write or say,
When you start "worrying" about this, then you have already lost, and they have won.
Sometimes you just gotta fight the bastards, and this is one of those times.
Say what's on your mind, speak up, and Elf their "LIST of Words"

According to this list I can't say "I slipped on the ice." or "I need to fill up on gas." or I might just be a terrorist.

hmmm

Somewhere I read the suggestion that everyone should send an email containing all the naughty words to all the people on their mailing list and those people should do the same.. eventually there would be so many emails flying across the series of tubes that listening heads would explode~

Excellent post.

Especially for us here.

I'm sure they love us.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Wow.

Clearly they've let something cloud their judgement. Even with all of the pork barrel spending for national security, as well as the revenue they make on the side by running drugs through Mexico, this was the best means of monitoring they came up with?

Awesomely Said!!!!!

Hope they see it!

skippy

Thirty years ago (on the

Thirty years ago (on the phone), I would ask for "sugar free bubble gum" and "shampoo". Dummy speak for coke and beer. We were SOOOO creative back then. Must have worked.

I wonder what clever

software they used to gather that list?

More bureaucratic waste.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

We should go out of our way to all use those

words rather than avoid them.

I thought that was part of the idea of moneybombs. Or was that just a happy coincidence?

ECHELON / Carnivore "bait"

Trouble-makers such as myself using e-mail on a regular basis added ECHELON / Carnivore "bait" to their signature lines in the late 90's/early-00's.

Do a Scroogle, er, Startpage search for ECHELON+spy+network and for Carnivore+FBI for a background on these two programs used by government for flagging "suspicious" communication streams.

The idea behind the e-mail signature "bait" we used back then was to have a large number of people using the 'trigger' words and phrases, thereby overloading the human resources of their Orwellian monitoring networks.

One might think of this sort of activism in terms of SIGNAL-to-NOISE ratios ... and I can be pretty damn noisy when I set my mind to it.

"Enemy of the State".

this subject is well covered in the movie named above.
the list of words attached with the link are puny, compared to the weighty ones , = that trigger alarms in the demons' mind, or $ystem.
