What Makes Your Secrets So Special?
To Whom it may concern,
Please get over yourself and get your nonsense out of my newsfeeds!
I chuckle when I see people on Facebook posting or sharing that crazy disclaimer that tells Facebook they don't have the right to share any of their information with anybody:
As noted on Snopes:

I have to question those people that are out shouting over the crowd about their privacy...
Are you the only one that has secrets no one should know about? "What makes your secrets so special?" ,or better yet, "Why do you have so many secrets to begin with?"
I'm a pretty transparent kind of fella...
I'm what you'd call an open book. There's nothing about my life I have to "hide" from others because I'm afraid someone will find out about it, or anything that I'm so ashamed about that I would worry myself to death if it ever made it out into the public limelight.
Believe me when I say that, because I'm certainly no angel. I've conquered my past to get where I am today. I've been in trouble with the law, drugs, consumer debt, repossession, divorce, jail (once in my life, and that's a 10 pager in itself!) Is this something I'm ashamed of? Absolutely not, it's the make-up of who I am and evidence of the struggles I've overcome.
What I think gets me most about those that post about privacy issues is that they must not understand what it is they are up against...let's take a look at how much privacy a person, at least one in the U.S., should expect to receive:
- Do you own a cellphone, a smart phone?
- Do you own a computer?
- Do you have an email account?
- Do you have a social media account?
- Do you have a drivers license?
- Do you own a vehicle?
- Do you rent/own a home?
- Did you go to school in the U.S.?
- Do you have utilities?
- Do you file your taxes?
- Have you ever been involved in a court case?
What cracks me up is that I usually find the people complaining have all of these!
Go crawl back under your rock...
If you're looking for privacy in this day and age...here's my advice to you:
Become a hermit...sell your home, your car, your computer, your phone and go back to living under the rock you probably belong under (or came from). At least delete your Facebook account, cuz you haven't got a clue what you're complaining about...
But that's just my opinion...take it for what it is and live your life the way you'd like, just don't expect me to keep you around if you have nothing better to do than complain about your privacy.
It's usually not like me to go off on a rant, kinda felt good doing so! Today's rant against privacy pushers is now over...feel free share with anyone you'd like ;)
P.S. My wife has just informed me, to my utter dismay, that I have actually gone to jail twice in my lifetime, once for a night, another for a couple hours. She emphasizes that it had nothing to do with her, or even for anything that I did, but does have everything to do with my previous marriage to a felon of an ex-wife and her shenanigans! I seem to have combined the two events into one in my memory! We both got a laugh out of that one!
