Big Brother is listening

June 12, 2013 

President Obama claims: "We are not listening into anybody's conversations." That's a total falsehood and misleading statement.

Readers are cordially invited to use their Internet search engine with the subject, "100 words that will put you on the Homeland Security watch list,' or, specifically listed within the Daily Mail article: "Revealed: Hundreds of words to avoid using online if you don't want the government spying on you." They include "pork," "cloud," and "Mexico."

Many, many other nonthreatening words that are quite innocent will also land you there.

The NSA super computers supposedly run a secret surveillance upon even our domestic phone calls, which uses a super sniffer program to detect their listed words.

Big Brother is very much alive and thriving.
