School’s out Friday

Well, this tickled my funny bone when I saw it cross my path via Twitter this morning. It was put together by the American Civil Liberties Union who have a petition running to put pressure on the American Congress to pass legislation to repeal the surveillance state sections of the Patriot Act and FISA.  I wonder if we’ll hear these lyrics in place of the regular ones at any Carolling events this Christmas?
You better watch out,
You better not Skype,
You better log out,
Yeah you better not type,
The NSA is coming to town.You’re making a list,
They’re checking it twice;
They’re watching almost every electronic device,
The NSA is coming to town.

They see you when you’re sleeping
They hear while you’re awake
They know who you call and who you write
So encrypt for goodness’ sake!

With Congress in the dark and a cloak-and-dagger court
We’re lookin’ for answers, they’re comin’ up short
The NSA is coming to town.

They’re making a list,
Checking it twice;
They’re watching almost every electronic device,
NSA is coming to town
The NSA is coming to town,
The NSA is coming to town.

End of another very busy week. Roll on end of the year. Enjoy your weekend. 🙂
