    If while on the monkey or any other similar websites, you are being tracked and compiled into a database by one of our alphabet friends. I would think under the patriot act it would be most likly, just looking for everyones $.02

    Count on it, that's why we emphasize OPSEC as heavily as we do.

    Discussing how to preserve rice in mason jars with nitrogen for long term storage - not much to worry about.

    Discussing the recipe tweaks on your latest batch of ANFO - might want to worry about who might be watching.

    This is a public site and even the 'private' forums are only an automatic registration away. We have a couple of private, private forums for other discussion but even those send all text 'in the clear' from ones PC to the server.

    I try to constrain myself to the Newspaper test. Would what I'm typing look good on the front page of my hometown newspaper, right next to my picture?

    Of course, I'm probably the biggest point of any ABC interest since I 'own' everything you all type.

    I would bet the farm on it, just look at all the new computer laws passed that no one has seen or heard of. Unless we are lucky enough for a Monkey to find and share it. Then you take a person like me that is alomost a retard when it comes to computer's and the net we would not know what we were looking if the guy's didn't break it down for the Grutn Monkey to understand.

    They can put me on any list they want. Last I checked exercising my rights was frowned upon but not yet illegal.

    I'm just a curmudgeonly old fart who speaks his mind. When THAT becomes illegal, then I am in DEEP KIMCHI!! [own2]

    Granny... The Mounties "ALWAYS get their Man"... but I have never seen that they grab up Grannies, for being outspoken..... I would expect that the opposite would be a lot closer to the truth.... ..... YMMV....

    its a fact they are recording or at least monitoring everything
    look at the girl that said something about thatpolitician out west
    look at that hidden software on the smartphones
    and dont forget those people snapping pics of kids on their laptops
    what gets me is the gov and big biz can do it with no consequences
    but some legal citizen does it to one of them and gets a possible 75 years
    now tell me where is the justice in that?

    Altogether now:
    Paranoia strikes deep
    into your life it will creep
    Starts when you're always afraid
    step out of line, the man come and take you away.....

    I figure that everything I buy, type, who I call and where I drive is being recorded. I just figure I am not worth the man hours to figure out exactly how many pounds of beans and boxes of mac & cheese I have squirreled away.

    Being an old fart and after 20 years in the military traveling around the world, some of us know what pure evil looks like. Some of the returning troops are National Guard Units that will be released and return home. Some will return to their previous jobs. Others will be out looking for work and in this poor economy only some will have success in finding one. Releasing them back to civilian life will cut military pay that congress wants. Coming home for Christmas to families that await them is a great happening. Am I on a list youbetcha as a matter of fact many of them. As long as I recieve Social Security, Retired Military Pay, Concealed Carry Permit, Passport Card allowing me to cross the borders into Mexico and Canada and return, even a drivers license. As a 2nd Ammendment advocate I speak my mind about gun control to all who will listen. I have taken on oath when entering military service to protect the constitution. This includes freedoms of speech and religion. If you say something I disagree with you open up a discussion I may partake in or walk away from that is my choice and yours. Am I on any subversive lists for speaking my mind, who knows. Do I care what other people think. The only people I care about what they think about me is my immediate family. The rest can kiss my a$$.

    So You've met my mother-in-law?

    I hear ya bud... after all the years I've been writing about the BS the military, VA pull on us Vets It's a wonder why the men in black haven't been to my house to drag me off to some FEMA death camp!

    Of course if they do know me that well... maybe they figure the body count wont be worth the effort in taking me...

    On the other hand maybe they leave me be... because they know no matter how much we rant and rave the common everyday working Joe... doesn't care about Gun-walking... NORTHCOM... or how NAFTA was drafted to bring about the North American Union... don't believe me stop anyone on the streets and ask them about "Fast and Furious" I bet they say "Oh you mean the movie?"

    Ya know there is a lot of comfort in being that crazy old man who lives down the road.

    I fly three flags out at my place... the USMC flag the Stars and Stripes and of course the POWMIA flag... to to outsiders who don't know me think am a gun crazed Vet who's best left alone... their not far from being wrong... But to those who take the time to get to know they quickly learn I love this country and all it stands for... I also happen to feel that those people who make a mockery of our constitution and try to take our liberties from us, should be drug out on the street and publicly hung from the nearest tree...

    Naturally I was talking about the other Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder.... winkz
