An open letter to Big Brother ...

Yesterday I heard how the Homeland Security People in the United States are monitoring all our "Social Networks," probably including our blogs.  This is intrusive and insulting and possibly damaging.   We all have heard about how even highly placed officials have been refused boarding passes on airplanes because somehow they made it onto some list or another the government keeps.  What I don't hear about is how the government replaces the cost of the airplane ticket when a person is refused boarding because of one of their mistakes. 

I'm fairly sure this blog has a pretty fair following in the United States government because I routinely talk about Mexico, the borderland area between Mexico and the United States, and Eastern Europe.  I appreciate this following.  It is nice that someone reads my blog.  Thank you Big Brother.  If I can get you to read it enough perhaps I can eventually make some money from Adsense or some such.   

Actually, I am hoping that Google monitors this blog as much as the government does.  This morning while I am signed in everywhere to Canovals, the Google Blog here insisted on signing me into Canovals2 which of course does not exist on their Blog system.  Clever, huh?   Google / YouTube also tries to sign in another account which uses Yahoo as my Yahoo Google account - only Google cannot find that account as a Google account so they try their hardest to get me to sign up for an account which I don't want.  And ... if I already have it, why can't they find it.  Clever, huh? 

This morning, Google has my blog in Croatian even though I've chosen English as the language we will use here and I've written quite a bit about that  just that to explain why.  Really clever folks these Google guys are, yes?

Big Brother, you would do me a big favor if you could pass this entry along to the really clever fellows over at Google so they  could think over their cleverness.  

do sljedeći put, blagoslov - until next time, blessings,
