I am one of those evil Americans that didn’t vote yesterday. I had to work and sleep. Before you chastise me, I would be voting in a state where my vote would have been heavily overrun by many others. I know that isn’t an excuse but – frankly, if I had the option, I wouldn’t have voted for either anyway.
There are a few pros and some glaring cons to both sides so, to me, it was more of a “Which is the lesser evil?” situation.
That said, this one is for you!
Who did you vote for (or who would you have voted for, if you didn’t)?
To make this interesting, think of the biggest reason why you voted (or would’ve) for this candidate and sum it up in one word that you feel best explains your reasoning.
For example, if you were voting for Obama, you might have been interested in spreading the wealth. So you might say “sharing” as a word that would represent that. If you wanted Romney, maybe you were interested in changes promised by his Christian-themed morals, so you might say “morality”.
So, who was it?
I got into a hearty discussion today about some topics that shouldn’t be mentioned in a public blog.
At least, not one in which the author can be identified.
It got me to thinking about the lack of privacy on the web. You can do anything you want online, sure. But the moment you attach some sort of identifying information to it, you may as well throw your privacy to the wind.
Actually, the minute you post something online, just forget about any privacy.
Suspended, Fired, Arrested for Facebook and Twitter Posts – Is Online Activity Ever "Private"? Part 1
This is the 1st installment of a series I’m doing called “Is Online Activity Ever ‘Private’?” After reading this, be sure to check out part three, to avoid having this happen to you!
You can read parts two and three here:
Part Two – Facebook Privacy Concerns: Safety for Parents and Children
Part Three – How to Avoid Getting Fired or Arrested for Your Facebook Posts
You can look all around for stories about people getting in trouble for what they’ve posted on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and the like.
Some of the unfortunately large number of stories of people getting in trouble for their online activities (thought to be private) include…
These silly Democrats want to conduct a Weiner investigation…
The fact that this photo shows 2 women is even better.
I actually saw this on CNN yesterday while watching TV and had to stop and snap a photo of the headline.
Jay Leno, would you be interested??
CNN – Next time you might want to think twice about how you word your headlines. Unless someone meant to be funny…
Osama Bin Laden is the ultimate “suicide bomber”. At the expense of his life, he pretty much “killed” America as intended.
We call ours a success but what have we actually gained from his death? A perceived sense of security? An ever-expanding national debt?
The suicide bombers will not simply shrivel up and die if they remain passionate about the cause (which is likely given that they claim religious reasoning).
