So the White House has a private contractor crawling the web and social networking sites, collecting data (likely data that would fall into the PII (that’s Personally Identifiable Information) category and therefore have some implications with regards to the Privacy Act of 2005, the Information and Security Protection Act and Title 18 of the United States Code, section 1028d(7) among others. Furthermore, they are doing it without notice or consent by the individuals.
So where is the ACLU and other privacy-concerned groups now? It was one thing if the NSA wiretapped a phone conversation with an American phone number on one end when a suspected terrorist was on the other end. But to collect and process in some undisclosed manner this data is unsettling at best and potentially criminal in violations of various privacy and executive power restrictions at worst.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
