Re: I've got nothing to hide

Perhaps if you didn't have blatantly contradictory points ( Namely, not sharing personal info freely, yet being ok with warrant-less spying ) we could take you seriously.

And your incessant suggestion of political party reasons are equally nausea inducing. ( wanting privacy is now a political party position? )

In short, you don't have a position at all, since essentially you are taking both sides.

I mean your argument is that spying is not ok for a Walmart employee but ok for a Postal employee, yet the postal employee has the potential to do much more harm than the Walmart employee. ( Assuming your mail is more sensitive than your grocery list)

Extremely illogical.

Bullshit!

Me electing to give you my SS number IS not the same as the government snooping on me for criminal actions. This would be the ONLY reason the government would snoop you.

Walmart has no reason to spy on me. However, they may find financial gain if they track my buying habits and sell that info to a 3rd party. That im against.
The government, or as you say, a federal employee, only reason to look/snoop is to look for any thing breaking the law. They are not trying to make money by spying on me.

christ, it's like talking to a 1st grader.

So you judge people's criminal potential on the basis of whether or not they work for the government.

I worked for the government for two years and found the people I worked for way less trustworthy than my time in the private sector.

So I am really curious behind the logic of this one.

No, absolutely not. However, i do find private corporations more unethical than the government.

So to sum up you don't mind spying by a person hired through the usajobs.gov website, but you are absolutely against a person hired say by Sony Inc.

( Never mind the fact that many people in government came directly from some corporation )

Abso-fucking-lutely!

remember:
Gov. spies for criminal activity
corps spy for monetary gain.

There's a huge difference here that we're talking about.

Maybe if you live in Hollywood.

Perhaps somebody needs a refresher on the US defense industry.
