Internet Privacy – “Take That Dildo Out of My Ass, Uncle Sam!”

Posted: April 25, 2012 by Esteban in Shit Sucks News

It seems like everywhere you go, there is a camera watching you. With your every move being documented “For your own safety”, Says Big Brother, the last haven of privacy is exclusive to your bathroom and in your bedroom, where the cameras installed in either are strictly for entertainment purposes. Right now, the US is poised to pass a new law that would permit US agents to spy on almost everything we do online. This leaves you, reader, with two options; we can roll over and show Uncle Sam just how creepy our filthy fetish porn is, or we can bitch slap them before the final vote, sending a message that they should be minding their own beeswax.

Companies that we trust with our personal information, like Microsoft and Facebook, are key supporters of this bill that lets corporations share all user activity and content with US government agents without needing a warrant in the name of cyber-security; nullifying privacy guarantees for almost everyone around the world, no matter where we live and surf online. Whether they use it to send you more junk mail or to build a profile the types of pornography you enjoy, surrendering this information is not an option for many.

If enough of us speak out, we can stop companies that profit from our business from supporting cyber-spying. Sign the petition to these key net corporations now:

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) would allow companies doing business in the US to collect exact records of all of our online activities and hand them over to the US government, without ever notifying us that we are being watched. No warrant, no legal cause and no due process required. To make matters worse, the bill provides the government and corporations with blanket immunity to protect them from being sued for violation of privacy and other illegal actions. This is a heavy fucking deal, yo.

The bill’s supporters claim that consumer information will be protected, but the reality is that huge loopholes would make everything we do online fair game; especially since everything from banking to shopping, our private information is all stored on the Internet.

As trendsetters and tastemakers, we (staffers and readers, you and I) have a certain obligation to show those who look to us what is important, in our world and therefore there’s. If that sounds egotistical to you, fuck it, you aren’t important enough to care or don’t care enough to act. Going forward, UVSF has a great deal of activism partnerships approaching. Operating in both cyber-space while taking it to the streets, we plan to fight for your right to party, and you’d best be right by our side.

Ultra Vulgar Super Fiend’s from the west coast and beyond,

The world looks to us for action – don’t let them wait long.
