What do you think of this?

Welcome to Amerika post 9/11.

Big brother and big sister are watching. Auntie and uncle is watching too. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. We are a enemy to the State and will be spied upon.

What!?!? No Borg smilie?

This is one reason why my computer is custom built. They have no right to log whatever I have on my pc. This should really be reported to the media. Let's all write MSNBC.

It must be true. It's on the Internets - pipes and trucks and all that

MSNBC would probably get a gag order if somebody tried to get them to report on it.

I saw the same pic's on a security site several years ago about a "covert keylogger" they were selling, this is just a rehashed hoax.
