Does the NSA find the word "propsnsity" all too convenient?
This morning, I was greeted in my AOL inbox by a sponsored email from the Washington Times, something that said “the 20 words in your emails that can get you tracked by the NSA”.
I went to the link, and it seemed to be one of these videos that goes on and on, making you watch an endless presentation to find all the nuggets. Porter Stansberry used to do that with his presentation of what will end America (hint: the dollar is no longer recognized as a reserve currency because of too much debt).
Now, I thought that the controversy had been over metadata. I guess the assumption is that the NSA really does read all our emails and “private” social media posts.
Since almost all of my social media posts are public anyway, it makes little difference to me. But I’ve mentioned some frightening stuff, like the possibility of EMP attacks. Would that get me on a list?
I suppose that down the road, governments would get the ability to match genetic information with statements online to develop profiles of “propensities” and put people on watch lists, like at airports. And remember where the word “propensity” was so convenient for the government?
