    Default i never felt big brother was watching me ...

    ... until i saw this:



    i run IT and understand how this sort of thing works in principle, as i essentially are one of many that work on the central nervous system of society.

    but holy canoly, i had no idea one company this big could be out there without me being aware of them.

    anyone else a little chilled by the free market?

    And here I thought it was creepy when I bought a gun for my son at a local sporting goods store and 2 hours later the NRA is calling my house.

    Normally I like a lot of the information you present, it's usually very good.

    I was going to take your info on this far more serious, until you, once again/as usual, started insulting anyone who dares be a Christian.

    Now, i'm not saying you have to believe in anything I do, but when you go immediately on the offensive with your Christian-bashing. It taints any information you bring to the table.

    well, there you darn christians go again. being all nice and stuff and making me feel guilty about insulting you.

    the unfortunate part of being in this forum and arguing with you is that us non beleivers have gotten to see more of you beleivers and its getting harder to insult you knowing that you are basically decent people just making your way through the world.

    as an offer of explanation to x contingent here, if there is any anger in my words, it comes from the argument that requests of me to respect unsubstantiated beleifs ... that ALL BELEIFS, regardless of how silly, deserve equal time and respect. i have a very hard time with this and my words are aimed to claim a stake in the ground and not give an inch. sometimes, of course, they come off as throwing arrows at friends.

    for the arrows i appologize, for the stand i do not.

    for the bad communication ... i'm learning.

    anyway the above is not meant to derail the thread into theology, just a way of explanation if it means anything.

    sorry, back to the topic.

    looks like this one is going to sink like a stone, but i am still flaberghasted at the scope of that company and just how under the radar it actually is.

    we know of the murdochs of the world, i wonder how many more of these there are.

    i am very disturbed by this to the point it might start changing some of my choice and voting patterns.

    i am having a very hard time with a single organization running the entire UK's nuclear weapons program.

    i just don't know if i am overreacting or if i have a legitimate concern now.

    It's okay. We Christian whackjobs and our zombie savior forgive you.

    Of course. That's just someone incapable of consideration for anyone else's point of views looking for an argument,, not a discussion.


    I am still foggy on how that Christian whackjob figures into a thread you started about a private military and security contractor. Is the company owned by a sect of Christian zealots or something?

    And what is this claim that you say you're trying to stake anyhow? What stand are you trying to make, and what exactly does it have to do with serco? Bring it all together for me if you could.

    You should be more scared of the Gates of the world than of the Murdochs. Just my $.02
