The One Where I Complain About Big Brother (No not a sibling, idiot)

Drawing By: Angela Williams

So…Can someone tell me when America became Nazi Germany? I’m seriously starting to feel some communistic waves over here. On top of the uproar with SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, and the OPEN Act, in fly’s Google with its brand new Privacy Policy. I know I’ve said in the past that I’m all about sharing is caring, but really Google? The new shared searched data policy is kind of annoying. This means whenever I search something on Google that data will be shared with all your Google based sites. Are some of you technology challenged people asking what that means?

It means your information will be shared across Gmail, Blogger, YouTube, Google+, et cetera. So say you’re a big ol’ pervert and you’re searching for porn on Google (yes, I’m talking to you) the next time you go to YouTube, you might just see boobs popping up all over. Then again I suppose if you were searching for porn in the first place you’re finding this new policy pretty damn convenient aren’t you?

But yeah I digress. Now you know that I’m pretty easy going and if this was just some crazy kind of new feature or add on it wouldn’t bug me, but once this goes into effect it’s not something I can opt-out of. It’s mandatory. Google is basically making me their bitch and I don’t know about you, but I’m not too big on the whole being someone’s bitch thing. Kinky as it may be I’d much prefer to make someone my bitch. (Control issues)

I suppose if this was as far as it went I could get over it…Eventually, after I’m done complaining enough to feel better. But of course it’s not, because that would give me nothing to blog about. Apparently this Privacy Policy is also being activated in smart phones. Not only will my data be store, but my voice calls will be recorded.

Seriously? If I wanted people to listen in on my phone calls I would use speaker phone asshat. I don’t need a babysitter or big brother watching my every move. I thought America was all about freedom and good will towards men and all that jazz. Besides if I was going to do something illegal do you really think I’d plan it over the phone? How stupid would I have to be to do that? I’m sure that’s not why they’re recording it, but honestly I don’t give a flying fuck.

I like my privacy, jeez I barely get any at home you would think the internet would at least provide me some, but apparently not. Google you were seriously my favorite, but now…I might have to use…Bing. Which makes me sad even thought I totally love saying ‘BING!’…It’s fun, stop judging me. Anyway I guess that’s enough complaining for one night, but seriously Google get your shit together and stop trying to make all my websites be one big clusterfucking Brady Bunch.

I like them separate so I can do my thing without everything intersecting.

If you want more actual information on this and not just my complaining go here and here.


  1. Word. I agree with everything you said. And for the first time, I'm really glad I don't have an iPhone.

  2. I'm new from the FF Friday, and I completely agree! (Anyway, did anyone else read 1984? Scary! I mean, come on. Freaky stuff happening there!
