Have Mercy Sweet Gmail !
we are no longer safe and insured the right of privacy;
some of you may remember the commercial where
the bigger brother blames his younger brother Mikey;
for everything that happens to become a mess..
Today we are also going to shift the blame to Mikey,,
Mikey Mosman - the federal judge who approved this mess
of a bill; IOHO, should be sent the full rath of invasion.
Mostly because he unleashed hell with this thoughtless
decision; to void the right to privacy in your personal email.
who cares if I want to discuss my personal shoe issues with
my girls in far corners of the world ? Mikey Shouldn't
just remember it Won't Be Private, cause Mikey Did It
when we saw this story on Current, it took us fast.so in case you want to send that nasty anonymous note;
this is the type of invasive counter measure that insures
that no one will ever have privacy again.
forget it, it's no longer anonymous according to Judge Michael Mosman
of Portland Oregon.just remember it Won't Be Private because Mikey Doesn't want it to be
and you thought Oregon was all for freedom, NOTTTTTT.
today we ask our friend in Portland -
Doctor Faustroll What Say You From PDX ??
Now I don't want to dwell on the obvious here, RE,
but Mosman was just one of dozens of Bush judicial
appointees who will continue to buttfuck the NOMF™
citizenry for years to come, with their total apathetic complicity.
Americans love to support lunacy and be proud of it.
Portland loved to be called Little Beirut by Fubar Bush's old man back
in the 80s and still compares itself favorably to New York and Chicago
when it considers its rightful place in the universe, although it is
much closer to Warsaw in the 1930s.
I recall a cartoon when I first arrived out here that resulted in
screaming me-me's that portrayed the local animal hospital with
a dog entering a shower and asking where's the soap? That's Oregon.
Back in the day, my U.S. mail was routinely opened by fuckwads who work
on my dime and yours, sometimes stamped: Opened for postal inspection
and other times marked: Damaged in transit. If you get a chance to read
or see Little Murders, do so. There are ways to fuck with people
fucking with your privacy, and I do it all the time.
I had my private shit violated by my parents and teachers and various
other sanctimonious dickweeds in the rite of passage known as growing
up sane in an absurd mongoloid clusterfuck.
Oregon is the kind of place where a guy installed web cams in
portapotties at the Rose Festival several years ago. This sucker
actually dropped down into the works and attached a mount that would
record the bunghole and urinary apparatus and stream it to a remote
location where he would edit it and post it for other portapotty
I have no idea how he was caught, but it turned out that there was no
law against what he was doing, which enraged the righteous citizens of
Oregon and mobilized them to petition their lawmakers to make sure that
future portapotty poopchute shooters would spend time in prison for
snapping yellow snapper and brown bomber pixs.
This particular story about the AT&T clusterfuck is quite old. Bush
is still at large and Nancy Pelosi took impeaching that malicious dumb
fuck and prosecuting his entire administration off the table in 2006,
if I remember correctly
This is one of those stories that makes me remember back 40 years ago
when I worried that someone was actually paying attention to the
horrible things I was thinking and writing, which were pussy shit
compared to what I think and write today. Ever see Little Murders?
In it, Alfred Chamberlain, a photographer has been so battered by the
lunacy of the ordinary idiots around him he has devolved to the point
where all he does is take pictures of shit. He used to be more
creative, but things started to get out of focus, so he shifted to
commercial photography, taking product photos, until they, too, got
fuzzy. But shit is always clear and obvious.
So here's my point, although I don't really have a point because I'm a
natural born asshole who suspects the universe is pointless and life is
meaningless and people are boring and tasteless, unless you serve them
with a tangy sauce, and that point is that whoever would be deluded
enough at this late stage in our dissolution to pretend that anyone
should expect privacy probably needs to pull the sphincter up off their
BTW, you should hear how the Brits pronoun privacy. It tickled my
As for Mikey, he'll eat anything and is willing to take one and another
and another for the team. He's a fucking schmuck, like most lawyers,
judges, business turds, and politicians.
You have to remember that Oregonadia prides itself on having received
the law by pony express from some unidentified location back east. I
suspect it was Chicago, although many low-self-esteemers in Stumptown,
home of the original Skid Row, hold out for New York or Washington or
Boston, as if those places had even heard of Oregon until the Trail
Blazers won the NBA finals with a center who may have had something to
do with the kidnapping of Patty Hearst.
So am I worried that I have no privacy? No. Do I think that people who
violate my privacy should be nailed to underpasses and have their
genitals mutilated and their corpses abused?
Of course. Better them than me.I just can't get too psyched
about Big Brother or Big Mama or Big Sister or Big Anything anymore.
I have had too many neighbors over the years to think that anyone is worth
saving.I write what I write without fear of reprisal.
If I'm going to end up like Garcia-Lorca, so be it.
The fact is I'm not confrontational. I hate politics and find voters to
be among the least intelligent people I have ever interacted with. Do I
hope that one day the entire cast and crew of the George Dubya Bush
administration will be hunted down and rounded up and tried and hanged
from light poles along the Interstate highway system from sea to Hymie
Of course. -You mean there are people out there who no longer
dream of truth, justice, and the American Way?
YES FAUSTROLL - YES,, WE HEAR YOU
this is the story from Current; read it and weep friends
Feds Can Search Your E-Mail Without Notice, Judge Rules
Oct 30, 2009 10:18 am
No matter how much of our personal lives exist in e-mail services such as Gmail, a U.S. District Court judge says it's okay if the government takes a look at your e-mail.
The opinion by federal judge Michael Mosman, handed down in Portland, Oregon, involves a case in which the government has probable cause for a search and asked Google to provide nine months of a Gmail subscriber's e-mails, seeking evidence of the crime. Furthermore, the feds asked that the search warrant be sealed and that the user shouldn't be told what was happening.
Gmail isn't the only e-mail provider that might face this situation. Other services, including Microsoft's Hotmail and AOL, say in their usage terms that they'll share information with the government when required by warrant or court order. What's shocking is that this could be happening without your knowledge.
Mosman's ruling reversed an earlier decision that the user must get a receipt after the government rifles through e-mail. Though he says electronic communications are protected by the Fourth Amendment, which guards against unreasonable search and seizure, those protections don't apply to the e-mail user. If the government takes a look at your e-mail, the obligation to disclose what was searched ends at the Internet Service Provider.
Mosman gives this analogy: If the government seizes a package sent by FedEx, the recipient and the sender don't have to be told, as long as FedEx gets a copy of the warrant. Also, Mosman wrote that the government didn't take any property, so to speak, because e-mail can be viewed from anywhere.
The nut of the issue is that Mosman doesn't liken e-mail to personal property stored at home. "If a suspect leaves private documents at his mother's house and the police obtain a warrant to search his mother's house, they need only provide a copy of the warrant and a receipt to the mother, even though she is not the 'owner' of the documents," he writes.
However, Mosman writes that the law remains unclear about whether information stored online is like a "virtual home." I think enough people assume so that we need some legislation to iron this out.
