Nothing to hide?
« on: May 18, 2009, 08:48 PM »
In the debate over ID cards and DNA databases, etc., we often hear the words .......I've nothing to hide, so nothing to fear...

I've often wondered how the people who say that know they've nothing to hide, without knowing what our masters, present or future, want to know.  Who would have thought twenty years ago that something as innocent as a utility bill in the dustbin would have such value as it has today to an identity thief?

As to the claim that 'your information is safe with us', - nuff said.

Light blue touchpaper and retire...........

Clearly then, it should come as no surprise that the information isn't really safe. Laptops and USB drives left on trains in Taxis and so on.
Some people value privacy others aren't really bothered

To quote Martin Niemoller:

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
    because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me--
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Scares the beejayzus outta me does that :-\
My pet hate is passing. When my time comes, Im going to die, Im refuse to pass. I want people to say Im dead. Brown ******* bread. Any ****** that says I passed, Ill haunt.

One thing is for sure, this government can't be trusted at all! We need these terror laws they said. They asked us to trust them. What did they do? Used them against that well known terrorist state ICELAND! Even local councils are using them to spy on people!! The way this lot are going, I wonder how long it will be before the lines quoted by Kiwi are a reality here!!
The Black Knight rides again!

Noam Chomsky is banned from entering Israel because hes against the land grab thats happening now . The fact that hes Jewish doesn,t matter. Yes Kiwi , its happening now , under our noses but there has to be an "enemy" so there are excuses to invade countries , what really gets me is angry is that a country like Israel and its pal Egypt can essentiallly imprison 2 million people ( in Gaza), who are deprived of basic rights , and have to build tunnels to bring in food and medicine, and then risk being gassed by their fellow Arabs (Egypt)and no one even talks about it !!!!! >:(
Politicians and nappies should be changed frequently...and for the same reason!!!
