Don’t You Love the Smell of Sarcasm in the Morning


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?

    Jim: I don’t think it’s very funny at all to consider our tea party friends being watched over through the NSA program. We need this program like we need to hear ‘Allahu Akbar’ or ‘Constitution’ or ‘IRS’, which is never! We patriots, who are concerned about our freedom, must fight with every fiber of our being to make sure that terrorism is defeated. We must defend the Constitution including the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth etc.,etc., amendments.

    In closing, we must not lump our Islamic, er, Islamist, er, Islam loving people in with terrorism. Let us all acknowledge, in the spirit of brotherhood ALLAHU AKBAR! AMERICANS for PROSPERITY! Aaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllaaaaaahhhhhhhuuuuu Aaaaaaaaaaaakkkkkkkkbbbbbbaaaaaarrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!

    Pete –
    You’ve read enough of my articles to know that I, too, am a Constitutionalist first above all. If you honestly believe that my words are trying to undermine the Constitution, then I have to say that you’re wrong. In trying to put a little humor into the idea of putting sand in the gears of the NSA listening program, I apparently hit one of your more sensitive nerves. That being the case, I’m sorry you reacted this way, but I believe what I wrote, and shutting down the NSA program will do more good than evil.

    Jim

    Jim: Oh No!! I was being sarcastic concerning the use of those words. My fault. I didn’t write it good enough, I guess. My words were meant to be noticed by this stupid program. I absolutely agree–shut the damn thing down. Let’s have limited government.
