The NSA wants my cell phone data? Meh. Most of it is on Facebook anyway!Submitted by bobbyw24 on Wed, 06/12/2013 - 07:52
So this whole "the government is going all Big Brother on us" thing is everywhere right now, and I’ve come to an important conclusion about it all.
I don’t really care.
Like I know that, as an American, I should care that my Fourth Amendment rights are potentially being violated. But honestly, I had to Google what the Fourth Amendment even was. And considering that we’re talking about an amendment written so far before the existence of cell phones that it was fifteen whole amendments before women were allowed to vote, I’m not sure that it’s actually being violated here.
In talking to a lot of my friends, I found many of them (except for the extreme righties, who are still protesting the amendment that gave my kind and people of other races the right to vote and who claim creationism is the only thing that should be taught in schools) don’t care either.
But Sara, you freaked out over all of Bush’s Homeland Security stuff! You’re such a hypocrite! You’re only saying this stuff is okay because you support Obama.
Well, you’re right and you’re wrong.
I DO support Obama. I’m the freaking poster child for supporting Obama. I own a sparkly Obama tank top.
And wore said tank top on stage with Bruce Springsteen. Because that’s how I roll.
