Let's not forget

Now that this list is out you will probably be monitored if you make an effort to not use any of these keywords! Anyone making a concerted effort to avoid these keywords is most certainly a terrorist RIGHT?

Aw hell

This means we'll all be going to Guantanamo indefinitely for associating with you non-watchlist-word-users. Thanks a lot!

Jobs Growth Prosperity!

Freedom!

Defeat the panda-industrial complex

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

Discrimination

They mentioned Los Zetas cartel but not Sinaloa, which is the dominant faction in Mexico border violence.

That one's okay

Purely because it's the one with all those ATF guns.

Keyword MadLibs

I enjoy AGRICULTURE, especially the SWINE PANDEMICS. My SICK PORK are scared of POWER OUTAGES so I keep them SAFE with TAMAFLU. I'll load them on an AIRCRAFT and CANCEL their METH LAB. Their stinky PLUME of GAS causes CHEMICAL BURNS on my NERVE AGENT, so I EVACUATE SPAMMERS. SEEKING EMERGENCY HELP from PORK DIRTY BOMBS.

HAhahahah! I'm stealing this...

Haha, come get me

You know what?

This very well could be the keywords they do not mind us knowing about because they no longer look for them. I'll bet they have a whole new list they are using now.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Just had dinner.

Wife made some great PORK chops. Man, they were good.

Hah

Everyone starts to copy & paste the full list of words on every forum available online - lol

dirty bomb.

suicide attack. nuclear. Mickey mouse.

ya, then if a year goes by,

ya, then if a year goes by, they will target e1 that does NOT use those words..

I wont eat pork in Mexico or drink their water from the clouds.

Bomb, Gun, Fire, Explosives, Fertilizer, Terrorist Training Camp, Fingernail Clippers, 10 Oz of liquid soda, razor, box knife.

.

Pork in the clouds of Mexico

It doesn't really matter if you use those words or not. Big Brother is already spying on everyone, no matter who they are or what they are saying.

You can be sure

that everyone who posts anything on the Daily Paul is being monitored and watched by the Feds. Guaranteed. What is scary about this is that the Feds continue to try to give us the illusion of freedom.

/start sarcasm
If only they could get around that pesky Constitution and outright filter / block / and control the Internet. Then they wouldn't have to spend all this time and energy "monitoring" the American people online.
/end sarcasm

Seriously though, we need to fight tooth and nail to stop OUR Government from controlling OUR lives and freedoms. We The People need to be RESTRICTING THE GOVERNMENT - Not the Government RESTRICTING it's people.

Wake up America!!!

*On a side note* I chuckled that 2600 is listed as a "key word" - they must fear the 2600 Quarterly, LOL (all my fellow hackers should recognize this)

The Constitution is, and of itself, only

an antique sheet of parchment, that was long ago inscribed with oak gall ink script
from a quill pen. In other words, this document, among the most brilliant to ever flow from the minds of men, is only as good as the people who fight to keep this sacred contract enforced. Thus far, we have done a terrible job. Our current government is violating the contract left-and-right, every day of the week, while smugly looking on and saying: “So...what are you going to do about it”? In their minds that is a rhetorical question, such is the nature of power. We The People, on the other hand, must honestly and forcefully answer that question, and in no uncertain terms.
These people are the true terrorists.

@zeeon:
They must still be pissed about that ol’ boxing game for the Atari-2600 ; )

I think there was an earlier list

that contained most, if not all, of these terms.

Some of them make sense, it will alert local authorities immediately if anything chaotic is going on.

None of it is legal or should be used to spy on people.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Sorry

Do you think they would raise

Do you think they would raise the terror alert to level Red if i used all those words in the same sentence ? lol

Homeland Security is staffed by tax parasites.

Are they naive enough to believe they earned their paycheck?

Free includes debt-free!

like a dog chasing it's own

like a dog chasing it's own tail...

We should cut and paste a

100 of those words and put them into every e-mail sent. That will keep those spying bastards so busy the will be swamped with useless information for years to come.

Thank goodness 'hemorrhoid' is not one of the words.

If it was we would never be able to accurately describe the individuals running our government that comes up with lists like this.

Thanks for posting. Scary info but most important to let people know how far fascism has crept into our daily lives.
