They like us, they really like us: Revolt of the Lab Rats? Or Voyeur Caught Watching? | MetaFilter.
OK, I’m being sarcastic. Truth is, they really hate us. A lot.
But it’s funny to read their clueless comments, completely misconstruing the direction and purpose of Little Green Footballs, and spewing hatred in all directions like psychotic manbabies with insomnia. Which is pretty much what all the purblind leftist drones do.
I visited the first time because it was referred to as a "right wing hate site"
We're not paranoid; we just believe that Democrats and Muslims are united in a vast global conspiracy to destroy Western Civilization as we know it.
You know, I've been appalled at how readily Americans have seemed to hand over their civil liberties at the slightest request from the government. But I wonder how much of that can be attributed to our reduced sensitivity about privacy -- a reduction that comes directly from changes in communications technology.
I can remember when my parents kept an unlisted number and didn't like to give out our address, except to people we knew. Now, we've come to accept a world in which someone can view a satellite image of your house online, we customarily offer personal data in order to get access to content on websites, we know that our cell-phone conversations could be overheard on our neighbor's radio, and we are (sometimes) willing to give our zip codes or phone numbers when making purchases in some stores.
[We] no longer regard our personal information as private. So when the government asks to read our mail and listen to our phone conversations, it doesn't feel as weird as it should.
