    I often listen to Beck. And Sometimes to Alex Jones. I don’t think of it as news. I think of it as entertainment. Sort of like Adam Curry.

    This is SOP for any secure government website. I do computer work for a local gun dealer. The FBI background check system is the same way. You agree that while you are logged into their secure site that your computer is considered part of their system and anything you do while there can be monitored, etc. This is to prevent abuse such as a gun dealer doing a background check on someone not purchasing a gun or an unauthorized person trying to hack into the system to get names, addresses, SS#’s etc from their database. More Glen Beck BS.
    Please stop drinking the koolaid.

    You have to be able to sign in first.

    Anyone truly worried that the techies at DOT can even do anything with your computer once you inadvertently give them the right to do what they wish with them?

    I mean their are complaints of dealers not being able to sign into the site, having claims denied that were previous pre-approved so I am not worried that the DOT could even pull this off.

    Isn’t this the same DOT that had its site shut down due to DDOS attack due to old Internet Explore and other un patched software programs?

  4. bobbo, whew, that was close says:

    good, now I can go back to my broad brush: all right wingers are lying bags of s&*t. Too bad, their conservative roots have value. It was fun to watch Oreilly be upset about the media calling him out for flaming his nutball arguments ending with Tiller the Baby Killer being shot in church. No apologies. “HE” was upset his straight forward accurate message about Tiller was being used by the media to label him.

    Hah, hah. That was the same week he started having Glen Beck on as a guest. I stopped watching both at that time, unless they have a guest I want to catch. Same with Hannity.

    I don’t “perceive” the liberals acting with the same conscious disregard of hypocrisy. Am I missing it in my bias?

  5. qb says:

    Wow, I don’t think Glenn uses a “personal computer” to surf the “information superhighway” much.

  6. Shubee says:

    I bet that what the website meant to say was that all the files that get created by the user filling out the forms may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed etc. I expect that the agreement page will change and an apology be issued since the Obama Administration doesn’t need any flak about this.

  7. Buzz says:

    #11 Great. You found the page. How did you get to it. The route Glenn showed doesn’t seem to be as straightforward as he touts. Perhaps you could elucidate.

  8. Glenn E. says:

    I’m thoroughly disgusted that Fox News even has someone named Glenn, to warp the facts. If this keeps up, I might seriously consider a name change. I’m willing to bet that Beck changed his name from “Pond Scum”, for more credibility.

    Anyway. I got to thinking that if sites like this were really a problem. They could easily be added to one’s browser “HOSTS” file, for blocking bad URLS. And some others that haven’t been mentioned here yet. Like buy.com, for their sleazy policy of turning over customers’ credit card info to its business partners for billing of unsolicited services. Check out last week’s Security Now podcast, about that.

    Kimberly said two things that proves she has no idea what she is talking about.

    A) “here you are trying to be a good citizen and make a charitable contribution.” -Its a REBATE program. The old car gets DESTROYED!

    B) “the government of coarse has malware systems and tracking cookies.” The government is not installing anything, let alone malware or tracking cookies. It’s just a EULA!

    She’s dumb!

    Change you can believe in!

  11. Uncle Patso says:

    Last week a clerk at the Post Office was rude to me — wouldn’t let me cut in line even though what I was mailing was more _important_!

    It’s all Obama’s fault!

    (/sarcasm)

  12. amodedoma says:

    Oh PULEEZ if you’re stupid enough to think the government is this crafty, you’ve obviously had very few dealings with them. If you’re really concerned about your PC’s security – BEEF IT UP! I go to massive LAN parties here in Spain. There’s always somebody complaining, but the LAN’s full of hackers and pirates they’ll take over my computer! And it’s true lotsa wannabes at these events. So, let’s see, disable file and printer sharing, firewall(not M$) installed, antivirus(not M$) installed, network traffic monitor, and you’re all set. I go one step more and use a 3rd party task manager called TaskInfo. I’m familiar with all the processes that my PC habitually runs, so I’d spot an intruder on his first try. It’s not that hard. So if you think that the gov is gonna take over your PC don’t let them.

  13. Dale says:

    These were the powers given post 911. This is not new.

  14. mmarrero says:

    Haven’t you noticed the hidden EULA here on Dvorak.org? It’s a javascript that displays a 1 pt cursive sentence using white text and background that says “all your base are belong to us!”.

    By agreeing to the EULA, it does help on the hunt, capture, extradition, prosecution and execution of anyone misusing the website, anywhere in the planet.

    Mormonism is a hell of a drug.

    This guys is fck head

  17. Frank says:

    Some are saying it’s no big deal because the site is only for car dealers.

    That’s like saying it’s ok to steal from people under four feet tall because there aren’t that many of them.

    If you violate the rights of one, you violate the rights of all.

    For me, the biggest problem is not that this sick thing exists, but that so many people don’t see anything wrong with it. THAT is indeed frightening.

    Nazi Germany rose to power with the same dictatorial attitude. The complacent among them said “it won’t happen here.” The complacent in America are now saying the same thing. Some of them are posting on this blog.

    Be sure to catch the coming sale on Obama “brown shirts.”
