I don't think that T-Mobile even sells a plan without free unlimited texting anymore. Their 500 minute talk + unlimited text for $39.99 a month looks like their cheapest plan; how much are you paying?

Good thing Barry repealed the Patriot Act...oh wait

Right after he closed Gitmo


Yup. What are the Tea Partiers complaining about? This administration's policies have been a continuation of GW's, if not worse.

Essentially we're about to start the 9th Reagan term, each being spookier and more repressive than the last. The sitting President, his party affiliation and his campaign statements don't matter in that regard, nor do the Cabinet members: the real decisions are made further down the supposed hierarchy in the permanent bureaucracy, or sometimes out of the Federal apparatus altogether.

From what I've read over the years about the Warsaw Pact countries major policy decisions were made in the bowels of the Kremlin and conveyed to the office holder by messengers and advisors; it's impossible for someone without a cyanide pill level of clearance to figure out even where the bulk of important US decisions are made and whether they're made by Federal employees or only conveyed through them. (Probably both.)

The permanent apparatus is so byzantine, large, so entrenched, arcane and full of links within and without, that if the entire top level of the Executive Branch were sliced off indefinitely things would go on as before until everybody who knows "how things are done around here" died without training a successor.

Thanks, Cardinal Richelieu.

Text messaging is already pretty antiquated in today's age of smart-phones.

Thankfully, modern encryption works, so long as there are still really tricky math problems. In many ways, your ability to protect your sensitive information has never been stronger.

Of course - real criminals would just....

1.) Buy pay-as-you-go phones anonymously
2.) Use fake information
3.) Steal someone else's phone
4.) Use low-tech non-incriminating language (Instead of 'Buy some drugs' say 'Buy some paintings')
5.) Use smartphones and feasibly unbreakable encryption techniques

The only people this stuff impacts are really stupid criminals and everyone else. Where 'everyone else' gets stuck paying the costs associated with keeping and managing all this data. Nevermind all the potential for abuse.

So, while you might think you are trading your privacy for safety, in reality, you're giving away your privacy for nothing. Actually, you're paying for the privilege of giving away your privacy. *IF* these systems were effective and if criminals couldn't get around it; we might have grounds for a real debate about the merits of implementing it. But as it stands? It's retarded.

I have a cheap grandfathered family plan - $65 per month for 3 lines, 750 shared minutes and unlimited texting for my daughter. No phone subsidies and no contract.

The least expensive unlimited plan with texting would increase my bill by $25/month and put me under a two year contract. I'm not keen on being on contract and - in any case - I can't afford the additional monthly cost. I'd turn off SMS completly to avoid the junk texts but I do text occasionally.

mcreadyblue:

14 years imprisonment with out a trial.

Even Stalin had trials.


For the big fish. For ordinary people like us (presumably) they usually used troikas, three-person tribunals of some kind or combination of police, "justice" and "security" officials. Sometimes they'd "try" a whole roomful of prisoners at once for about three minutes, time enough to note down the charges, the number of "offenders," the demographic information of as many as they bothered to note, and what was done with them. Occasionally an odd person was actually acquitted, usually either because some official found him useful and/or got bribed but in rare instances because they decided he wasn't guilty, and of course he'd spend the next few months or years showing gratitude somehow.

"Smolensk, 3 Aug 36. 16 Trotskyites executed, 12 sent to labor camps, 2 of the latter now-ex-party members (A. Smithovich and B. Joneski). One prisoner acquitted, an 80 year old woman who had to be carried in on a plank: couldn't remember her own name, harmless. 3 cases referred to higher levels."

Do the prisoners at Gitmo get even that much?

Oh by the way: "In 2010, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, a former aide to Secretary of State Colin Powell, stated in an affidavit that top U.S. officials, including George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld, had known that the majority of the detainees initially sent to Guantánamo were innocent, but that the detainees had been kept there for reasons of political expedience.[45][46] Wilkerson's statement was submitted in connection with a lawsuit filed in federal district court by former detainee Adel Hassan Hamad against the United States government and several individual officials." From (the Wikipedia article on Gitmo's section on detainees.)

Yeah, I understand that was what you were really getting at, and agree that if the information is stored it should be available to the account holder to review at their will, especially if the primary account holder has younger children/teens on their plan.
However the first thing I though of was 'oh god, I'd never be able to look my mother in the eyes again.'

He bought that unused prison in Illinois... I suspect that, despite republican opposition, the detention facility at Guantanamo will be closed within a year or two.

14 years imprisonment with out a trial.

Even Stalin had trials.

I support trying them, but let's not go on pretending that it's the left that would object to moving these people into the regular criminal trial system from the military tribunal face they have right now. The GOP blocked the move to close Guantanamo, then slammed Obama relentlessly for his failure to do so... I'm tired of this being the way every fight goes... where the right just obstructs all rational courses, then complains about the irrationality of whats left.


One problem is you're unwittingly talking nonsense: there's no real Left with any influence in the Democratic Party, unless by Left we mean "compared to You-know-who." The closest we've come to that since WW2 was in the early/mid '70s, when Bayard Rustin's clique in the old Socialist Party dissolved itself into the "Social Democrats, USA" and committed itself to boring from within the Democrats. That was a stupid idea then and hasn't worked for shiat, seeing that each in major Democratic election the party shows it's moved farther to the Right, often to the positions the Republicans just vacated to go wingnut again. (You might say the purpose of Republican wingnuttery is to move the Democrats farther to the Right, not to actually accomplish anything by that tactic.) Except for gay and ethnic minority issues Obama's policies stand to the right of Nixon's, back when the "Rockefeller Republicans" still had some clout.

The only hope of really changing US government policies would involve devoting a generation or more to raising and infiltrating conspirators into the military in as many levels as possible until you had enough oomph for a military coup (whether it looked like one on the surface or not): this is essentially how the cliques around Ataturk, Nasser, Qaddafi, Assad and Hussein did it. Ataturk's military clique was lucky enough when the Ottoman Empire was crushed in WW1 to command several large bodies of troops in several important places and have friends in the central bureaucracy, so they could force through policies decided upon in the previous 80 years of conspiracy in 10-15 years at gunpoint.

Party politics would take even longer because you'd have to have enough influence in the media and educational system to change the way "the broad masses" (or at least their "enlightened sectors") think, to rewrite or redirect their deeply ingrained habit of "respecting" established authority and thinking in ways that the ruling cliques want them to. "Third parties are doomed to fail" and "rally 'round the flag" are obvious examples of that; another is "blacks are hoodlums and welfare cheaters." They keep harping on these themes over and over because they keep working because they're built into the System itself.

Even then you'd have to elbow aside the entrenched party bureaucracy, most likely by outliving them. The Gorbachev bunch tried to hurry this and look how that turned out: they should have been more patient with the poor benighted "sheeple," starting their unofficial program with 12 year olds. "Just a minor updating of the curriculum, mostly tiny details, nothing to be concerned about." While the current Democratic Party undoubtedly has some influence, as previously noted they're pretty right wing themselves: the Gorbachevites tried to get the apparatus to reform itself, instead of waiting for them to retire or die off or having them shot, and at least till the failed coup against him he was trying to save the system, not change its fundamentals.

Most likely what we'll see is several smaller "Gitmos" here in the Lower 48 with an ever-widening pool of "offenders" to fill them. E.g., they can reclassify certain civilian criminal charges as military or national security matters -- "helping the Nazi-Trotskyite conspiracy to take power in Siberia through a Japanese invasion" is an example of how the Stalinists put it -- and "trying them before a tribunal" or simply disappearing them. And don't worry, the Bradley Manning case and drug-gun-and-wetback smuggling cases show you don't even have to know what a Muslim is to qualify as a detainee. (Think of all the jobs that would create and all the government employees who'd feel important because they had important secrets to keep.) And then of course certain people would simply disappear from wherever they were disappeared to, maybe "found guilty" and executed, weakened and then given a special strain of norovirus, or "nobody knows what happened to that person you speak of who never existed anyway."

Even the mere handful college students who consider the "Trotskyist" ISO and the "Maoist" RCP outgrow it pretty quickly: it's another example of the LUG phenomenon. As for the die-hard radicals of the '60s & '70s and their successors (like me), those that are still alive and not converted or bought off are those who never had any real influence to begin with (like me, who nobody listens to) or those who assured their longevity by turning on competing sects (like the RCP and LaRouchies did) and/or turning in their friends (like I never had to do because nobody ever had any use for me in the first place).

At least I can be pretty sure I won't be taken into custody any time soon, because you might say my function is to discredit the alternatives by posting "obviously crazy" things like this: y'all "useful idiots" among the "normal" Farkers can twirl your fingers around your temples and talk about "those people in foil helmets" and very few people who hear you will even know how to consider that there might be enough in what I post to take any of it seriously.

But there is hope: maybe the economic system will disintegrate without hope of repair leading the larger structures to fall apart, or maybe Skynet will turn out to be a nice guy after all.

That said, buy cheap prepaid phones and smash them into little pieces after very significant exchange of texts. That won't help you if they're on to you already, but since you can't really know that better safe than sorry.

"All right Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up!"

Don't be so sure. Some people still seriously believe that a small roomful of Jews controls the world's economy; some even think the Elders of Zion are behind the Taliban stuff. And some of those people are in positions of influence in Russia, Iran, China, Japan and possibly the good ol' USA. Just because something is obviously bonkers doesn't mean whichever operative you wind up in front of will know that. 

PSST, an example: "Dragon" is a position in the KKK. Can you prove you're not a Black Muslim assassin? Or maybe you're a brainwashed libtard like in the ACLU. Or both! Wouldn't it be safer to bring you in for questioning just in case? We got facilities to fill here, you know. Jobs to create.

Most Americans ignore it also. Most americans are a bunch of fearful pu$$ies and are jumping at the opportunity to give up their rights to protect themselves from something that may or may not ever happen to them.

Fark_Guy_Rob: The only people this stuff impacts are really stupid criminals and everyone else. Where 'everyone else' gets stuck paying the costs associated with keeping and managing all this data. Nevermind all the potential for abuse.


This in a nutshell.

Sadly that is true. Somewhere we lost sight of the very limited role that the FF's, in their wisdom, intended for the federal government to serve. Since then we have been steadily creeping toward a Centralized Authoritarian Regime, which is exactly what the framers of the Constitution were carefully trying to avoid.

This can only lead to tyranny.

BizarreMan: BizarreMan: doczoidberg: Would it cool to have a job that would allow you to access all of those texts?

Oh, the nude pics you'd see!

The problem with those texts is that 99.99% of them look like the bodies at the jude beach. Baked but do not want.

Damn you auto correct. Nude beacon and naked


I LOL'd. How baked would you have to be to want them? And would the beacon shining on them help at all?

//Had T-Mobile but coverage outside the cities around here was so shiatty I had to go to Verizon.

let me guess, you were against it until Obama did it? I seem to remember a lot of complaining about both of those things that suddenly went silent when the guy with the D behind his name did it. (I have not stopped complaining about those things because they are crappy)

BTW the Obama Superfan Club meets in the politics tab in case you're wondering.
