I ran across a short piece at PJMedia this morning by a blogger who writes under the sobriquet “Zombie”. It’s well worth a read, and it should take only about two minutes out of your life and put a smile on your face as well. Here’s the link to the article: http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2013/06/12/dear-nsa/
For me, though, reading it gave me more than just a smile. It gave me an idea that would if not cripple, at least throw some serious sand in the gears of the NSA massive data collection efforts.
In a satiric sense, Zombie used “keywords” to draw the NSA’s attention to himself. The words he used were:
Constitution, Allahu Akbar, Tea Party, bomb, abortion, patriot, gun, IRS, Islam, dog whistle, Obama, prayer, tax, surveillance, 9/11,Eric Holder, birth certificate, Bill Ayers, drone, Orwell, Anonymous,leak, Second Amendment, Fourth Amendment, Ninth Amendment, Sixteenth Amendment and Fifth Amendment
After thinking about it for a few minutes, I remembered that every email program that the vast majority of us use offers one potentially very useful feature: the signature.
If millions of those who feel strongly that the government has no right to collect our email, phone, credit card and other electronically generated data all used this idea of packing the signature with the NSA paranoid keywords, it would probably overwhelm the system. The NSA has plans to examine every email that contains any or all of those keywords to find links to terrorists.
Adding those words to the email signature would have the NSA “threat” warning system light up like a Las Vegas slot machine that just delivered the jackpot!
Barack Obama should just love it, I mean really love it. It’s a perfect example of the Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm the system that Obama so admires, and it would be a pure, grass-roots effort.
What could possibly warm the heart of our community-organizer-in-chief more?
