If need be, do you think that the Feds could find you if you post on Democratic Underground?

Couple of asshats tried to start a letter writing campaign to my dept chair and university president several years ago complaining about my political views. The chair and I had a good chuckle about it. I presume the president's office has a special round file dedicated to complaints about tenured faculty's politics, LOL.

But I post under my real name, and anyone who wants to go back through my DU posts can easily find where I work, live, etc.

That takes care of 95% or so, and usually leads to a physical address.

It doesn't take much thought to see what kind of doors this opens up...

38. Yes - me too

Heck, the FBI knows me from the COINTELPRO program in the 1960s. I haven't changed my philosophy and they haven't changed their unconstitutional practices. And I don't give a damn what they know. I obtained my redacted FBI file via a FOIA request around 1980 and it was filled with vague allegations and a list of what meetings I attended. You know, I belonged to dangerous organizations like the American Friends Service Committee and SANE. They even interviewed my boss and my landlord, knowing that I had committed no crime but insinuating that I might be a risky guy to employ or rent to.

Bottom line - yes, the FBI can be nasty little bastards - but don't let them stop you.

On the other hand, every time I fly back from the Pacific Northwest with all kinds of great NW wines and beers in my check-in luggage, the majority of my bags get the "we looked through your bag and found dirty underwear" cards in them. I guess I attribute that to their Barney Fife intelligence, and after six years of living in NY, they have not quite figured out that I am an honest citizen who just likes to bring back top-quality beverages from a prime region for them!

Maybe someday they'll catch a real terrorist.

53. Actually, just about anyone can.

There is very little that is completely anonymous in this world if you own anything, communicate, travel or work. Whether the average person has the skill or desire is about the only thing that makes it not universal. You do know that you can buy information from the DMV at a price and even in bulk. You have a phone? or a pad? you are pegged. The fact is, you have to buy stealth and it's not cheep or foolproof.

If the feds want to get to you, it's no problem. Whether they want to is the only point. If it's politically in the interest of the Feds, then it's a done deal. I wouldn't sweat it though. The number of people being monitored is already practically beyond their ability to handle I'd imagine. Maybe we should keep it that way.

61. Why is that worrysome? Anyone who uses EZ pass, cell phone, Credit card is known info wise

 

I would think, like in baseball or in cop world, any plant or bad person would be an irritant to any group anyhow

And to make sure a team or group or cops in general are good, easiest way is to get the plants out, the bad ones out.

because in any group, there are instigators who do not have the goal of the group in mind

It just takes one bad person to create the exact opposite effect a group is trying to gain

and especially as the misbeotten OWS thinking that being anonymous is good.
No, it's the exact wrong way, because anyone can speak for them, and who knows if they are or aren't.
(not to mention being anonymous means they will never run for office, which means they never actually can change the system from within, which is the way any of the great protesters in the past now realize is the way to do it.)

BTW-remind people again,
The legendary Dr. King was wiretapped by John F. Kennedy and his attorney General Robert Kennedy.
So it's nothing new.

And it didn't stop Dr. King did it?

Again, I welcome being stopped at the airport and going through security, because it does keep people safe.
And when I am part of a group, damn right i want to ferret out those who have ulterior angles and motives

because I always wonder, what the hell is anyone trying to hide, when they already know it.

(as said, you pay by CC, have EZ pass and use a discount card at a supermarket, they know what toilet paper i purchase, and i never use cash, and have a complete record of my transactions.
So do they.
So what?
Who gives a spit

BTW-in the older days, when people made a call in a rural area, anyone in the area could have been on the phone with you.

So it don't bother me.

And yes to the answer

But also, if I were in a car in a ditch, they would be able to find me too, and save my life.

And if there is another terror plot, hopefully they will be able to make it safe prior to 3000 people dying like on 9-11.
and people forget that actual real people died on 9-11.

63. "and people forget that actual real people died on 9-11."

 

lots of people in the us have no idea their government is killing innocent people all the time

doesn't bother many here too much either

Drone Strikes Are Causing Child Casualties -- 178 So Far
War Costs’ latest video brings attention to the children who have died as a result of drone strikes. December 26, 2012 |
http://www.alternet.org/world/drone-strikes-are-causing-child-casualties-178-so-far

During my recent trip to Pakistan as part of our upcoming documentary film, Drones Exposed, I was struck most by the stories told to me by children who had experienced a U.S. drone strike firsthand. The impact of America’s drone war in the likes of Pakistan and Yemen will linger on, especially for the loved ones of the 178 children killed in those countries by U.S. drone strikes....

Kinda comes down to which lives are worth caring about and which are easy to forget

doesn't it

67. your example is backward, sorry,

 

had there been a drone over BinLaden before he plotted what he did 3000 people would be alive

who wouldn't have wanted a drone over hitler for instance

the faux thinking and soundkabibbles is that the media mentions the people killed
however, ten times more would have been dead had there not been drones

and I wish drones would be here to stop before they enter, any person who does mass
shootings.

you have to look in perspective, and the line the media is selling, I am not buying.

collateral will always happen, but then, they would most likely die in handtohand war ten times over or a thousand times over

and it is because Oklahoma City and CT school are one and the same, that all gun killings by mass shooters (not talking street crime, but mass killings) should be considered part of the war on terror, guns WMDs and then any and everything done to stop it should be on the table (like Elizabeth Warren said about options in Iran).

70. And if I was to get stupid and start theatening people they'd be right too

In my way of thinking.
We all have a duty, if I may, to be good citizens. To work to settle grievances through lawful means

75. I haven't been using TOR to surf here, so yes

Plus there's probably enough identifying anecdotes in my posts over the years that they could figure it out even if I did (not that many people have gone to college X, worked at company Y, and married somebody who does Z)

I don't think they consider me much of a threat.

If they can get a subpoena they can compel the site owner to disclose anything.
