Smile, You're on Candid Camera!

Candid Camera
with Alan Funt and Durward Kirby

Some of us will remember this very funny TV show - let's go to video:

Well, today the Department of Homeland Security is participating in a "new" type of Candid Camera show - DHS wants to by your friend.  That's right folks, the same Department that brought you the TSA fiasco; that cannot control our southern borders; removed the identity of America's enemies (by removing all words from their document, such as, "War on Terror, Islamic terrorists, etc. per orders straight from the top leader in the WH) ... this Department wants to be your friend.

That should be cause for a high alert and color me "red"!

First the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does away with color-coded terror alerts. Then Janet Napolitano tells Congress that the terror threat is at an all-time high. What’s going on?

In January 2009, when studying the color-coded terror alerts, a group of UCLA researchers found “the mentally ill, the disabled, African Americans, Latinos, Chinese Americans, Korean Americans and non-U.S. citizens were likelier to think the HSAS [Homeland Security Advisory System] alert level was higher than it was, and to worry more and change their behavior due to those fears.” The Obama administration — deciding that the “threat condition has economic, physical, and psychological effects on the nation” — set about to change the Bush administration’s pre-existing system. Come April, the color-coding terror alert system will cease to exist. In its place will be Facebook and Twitter.
Wait. Are you really being asked to friend DHS? The answer is yes.
Approximately one year ago, as I commented on USA Today, they left an option to attach any of my comments to Facebook.  At the time, I thought "Why on earth would I want to do that?"  Now, more and more newspapers no longer leave that option, but are pressuring those who comment to attach not only their Facebook, but also their blogs to their newspapers .  I consider that an invasion of my privacy.
Now, think about this, if you will:  the Obama administration has been working on ways to control the Internet and has developed Einstein 3 to assist in his quest for total control of your privacy.  Do you think this is a coincidence that DHS wants to be your "friend"?  There's a camera on my computer; maybe DHS would like to speak to me face to face - who knows?!
But, I'm not into conspiracy theories, just wanted to "Welcome you to the "new" neighborhood.  Won't you be my friend?"

  1. Conservatives will have to resort to codespeak. Henceforth "Kenyan" will be used when referencing any illegal alien.

  2. One of the things I noticed about the New Gannet Format is the pressure to log in through a Social Media account.. as I mentioned in my earlier blog, I'm not liking it.

  3. Here's an idea: everyone simply post a link to Conservative websites for one day, on Gannet ... don't debate or discuss their articles ... what an earthquake that would be to Gannet.

  4. BeeSting is on the right track. Silent argument. Lovc it.

  5. BeeSting - I like that idea. I'm in.

    Capt - You misspelled "LOVE" on Valentine's Day. Tsk Tsk! When in doubt, go with "LUV".

  6. Until Snopes clarified the myth, there was a reason why Mr. Rogers always wore those long sleeved sweaters.

  7. I can't find the blog page on the new FLT website. Anyone know how to get to it?

  8. Fishy I think the only two people worth reading who might still be posting FT's Blog page are Moos and GPAbud.

    Moos is posting his blogs here and on RT Forever. You can find Bud's humor and wit here

    Might as well cut out the middleman

  9. Thanks Grumpy. Don't want to miss those 2. They crack me up.

  10. Marine I used to be so good at four letter words...I think Gina is making me more civil...nah..not possible.
