    Is it me, or am I just tripping
    But why does it feel like my TV is watching the way I am living
    I mean it wouldn’t surprise me if my set was getting’ in on all the intrusive acts of today When the media is a high priced commodity that businesses are willing to pay

    I mean products like Tivo is convenient and all
    But what is the real concept
    Have you thought about that at all?
    I mean really where has the privacy gone

    You can run
    But you **** sure can’t hide
    Not with those silent helicopters watching you at night
    In flight hovering over your home watching every move that you make
    Satellites picking up on every sound and movement made every ¼ of a second.

    They say no cure for aids
    But when did a cure ever bring in dollars
    People “unshut” your eyes to the lack of concern
    And let the media not be your source of information
    Unless you are a business, organization, charity or other selfish entity
    Trying to manipulate the masses in creating results for your own personal gain.

    It’s just sad that even those groups of individuals don’t realize
    That they’re every move is being watched as well
    But more so the money being made
    The government will always have full control of them and will forever be watching

    Thanks. Very raw piece I was rushing to walk home and not to get out the rain either lol but to write this down. Inspired by a discussion in class today while I was at work (take classes online) and noticed how unaware people are. I guess those thoughts followed me through my bus ride and all the way through my walk where I ultimately transpired those very thoughts on to Word and transfered on to the forum. Thanks again for the love
