As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Employers Demand Job Seekers Facebook Passwords - Through The Door To 1984

Article - Job Seekers Getting Asked For Facebook Passwords

How in the world did we ever get to the point where any business had the right to pry into and hire or fire you based on your internet personal life. If we as a people do not step in here and stop this through our government representatives then we are no longer deserving of OUR nation or OUR constitution. The notion that a corporation supports you and so then can be into every part of your life eventually telling you in effect by this intimidation what you can and cannot do even in your personal life is a fall on your face surrender to the beginnings of an orwellian world and as if the post 9-11 surrender to fear is not bad enough. Get real people and get real now before you get acclimated and your sons get acclimated to this fools trap.
Corporations seeing an opportunity in the attitude to openess encouraged by Facebook seek to exploit that attitude of millions of Facebook users entering the workplace. Corporations are seeking to convince young applicants and thereby acclimate all future generations to the idea that giving up your personal life information to the corporation is a given and then of course with that your expressed opinions on politics and economics found on these sites, observed and screened by the corporation, become over time conditioned to please the corporation, that is if you want to get or want to keep your job. Essentially political opinion and discourse become captured in favor of wall street corporate politics as the powerless citizenry parrot the powerful corrupt. Not on this watch.

It will be so very interesting to see where the rightwing, the first in line acolytes to corporate power but yet love to quote the U.S. constitution for INDIVIDUAL freedom and liberty, come down on this but then never mind them. Call your congressmen and if that doesn't work this becomes a main pillar in the Occupy Wall Street protests this spring.

So the corporations really think they can own us like this? Let's find out.
And pray that God will endow people with the fortitude to follow through on this and congressmen will respond to the people.
