If The Military Spying On Social Media For Years Surprises You Then You Are Exceptionally Naive

I know, everybody focuses on the Three Letter Agencies and The Popo but as a Blogger who has been at it for over ten years, I could have told you that the Military has been showing up in my Visitor Stats for a very, very, long time.

Military as in Military Intelligence, not just some Schmoe out in Bumfukistan who was meandering around the web and happened to show up.

At first I freaked out a bit, I’ll have to admit.
After a while?
Meh.
That’s not to say that I ignore who comes and goes, it’s just that I have had so many government agencies, military branches, the DOJ, Secret Service,FBI, Treasury, and my all time favorite, someone from the office of the Sergeant of Arms for the United States Senate visit on such a regular basis for so long that I just assume that I am probably on every single list of subversives there is by now anyway.
The military is but one of many keeping tabs on possible rabble rouser trouble makers of which I proudly consider myself to be one of.

The fact that some dumbass failed to keep a lid on the evidence of their spying doesn’t surprise me either.

So if you work for the United States Government in some form and you have me targeted for surveillance then all I have to say to you is that I hope you are at least somewhat entertained when you swing by here and make yourself comfortable because I have no plans on doing anything different from what I have been doing for the last fifty seven fucking years.

  1. As an IA/Cyber professional for a number of DoD agencies, it’s absolutely no surprise that the USG is trolling social media. I’d almost expect them to do that.
    As I always stay to family, coworkers, and strangers everywhere in. re. social media: If you’re not paying for the service, you are not a customer, you are part of the product that they are selling. The price to run a FaceBook, LinkedIn, Snapchat, etc, are not trivial. Advertising by clicks can only raise so much capital. The money to keep the lights blinking, ‘trons whirring, and employees employing has to come from somewhere…

  2. So, I’m not the only one who gets those visitors…?

    Online watchers don’t bother me, but if they send the van, I’m totally stealth-tagging it “Unmarked surveillance van” with day-glo orange spray paint at 3AM.

    And taking all the lug nuts off.
