Sen. Franken Demagogues Privacy While Economy Burns

With housing prices headed for a double dip, unemployment at 9%, gas prices surging, and things economically worse than they’ve been in nearly 100 years, the esteemed Senator Al Franken has decided to take on the mobile phone companies on “privacy.” 

Here’s a little hint from someone who understands this technology slightly better than the average bear: if you believe you can use these devices and have any kind of assumption of privacy, you’re ignorant on how this technology works.  Even without GPS technology engaged, your location could easily be estimated by triangulating cell tower usage. 

The bottom line is that you are protected on line – there are laws against sharing your credit card information, your email address, your physical address, your health records, etc.  Those are already safe.  So what’s Al trying to protect? 



This is a demagogue distraction, trying to prove that the government “cares” about you.  Here’s a hint, Al.  If you really want to make a difference in our lives and protect us, how about getting us some jobs and getting nearly 40 million of our American brothers and sisters off of food stamps, huh?

  1. Do you think it bothers Al Franken and his brand of liberals that 40 million people are on food stamps? That is 40 million people dependent upon their "generosity". 40 million voters. 40 million slaves.


Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
