NSA: Violating Your Privacy for Me, No Poking Fun for Thee

You’d think the NSA would be good humored about this whole thing. They suck up every bit of info they can about us, which is considerable: from cell phone conversations to emails to internet browsing history to address books to contacts and friends on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Disqus, Reddit, Digg, and everywhere else, they know more intimate things about us and our history than our spouses and families do. They have all our financial information as well, and the IRS has shown every inclination of using such information vindictively and illegally, as have the FEC and EPA. Nothing we have that is locked or private is actually so.

The least they could do is put up with some of the humor from their sheep citizens. Gallows humor, since the NSA and the Obamanistas can harm any American they choose at their whim, and we have no possible way of defending ourselves. Poking a sharp stick in the eye of the NSA is an American’s way of going out with dignity, perishing on our own terms. Such benign protests are hardly a threat to them.

But no. The snap of a rubber glove, a firm hand on your shoulder, and the order to bend over. No humor at all.

So it was for on American named Dan McCall in Minnesota. He got the cute idea to design and sell a t-shirt design with a spoof of the NSA seal, the words around the bottom saying Peeping while you’re sleeping. Beneath the spoof seal is another good-natured jab: The only part of government that actually listens.

They sent a letter to Zazzle, who produces the shirts (and mugs, caps, etc), ordering them to cease and desist on the grounds of violating a law prohibiting the use of the NSA initials, symbols, or logo in connection with any merchandise, impersonation, solicitation, or commercial activity in a manner reasonably calculated to convey the impression that such use is approved, endorsed, or authorized by the National Security Agency.
