Here's a societal fail
Our data is now up for sale
A terrible sign
Be cautious online
You're leaving a dangerous trail
The Limerick King
Here is something to ponder folks.
Have you heard so much as a peep about any of these outrages coming from the billionaire self proclaimed Silicon Valley paragons of information and internet freedom?
Do you hear them expressing outrage that truth and liberty are being persecuted on a daily basis?
This is data we are talking about. Hard drives, not hamburgers.
Are they in fighting the good fight for digital liberty?
Of course not.
Because they are wearing the other f***ing jack boot that's why.
I am very sorry, but signing a disingenuous letter imploring the government: "oh pretty please allow us to disclose the myriad of ways everyone is getting data f***ed", does not cut it.
Just don't forget the blanket indemnity Bro.
You know what?
They can float all the stratospheric BS about ballooning connectivity to the poor, suffering and disadvantaged peoples of the world.
And while they are at it, they can all go and f*** themselves.
