The upside_down world we live in, where authority tells you to relinquish your rights - otherwise they would think you're a "bad person". How many fall for it? Lots.
STFU, Get up, and then blast the mofo'n air as loud as you can? That's with your VOICE of course, and only in this circumstance would I consider money a person or voice constitutionally, so you can throw as much of it in the air as you want so long as you're close to me.
I, ___________________, agree to immediately cease and desist communicating with other entities in exchange for SiliconJon releasing any and all claims against me for patent infringement. In the event this agreement is breached by me, SiliconJon will be entitled to everything I have ever owned or associated with, including, but not limited to: my wife, girlfriends (past and present), personal property including all banks accounts and any other assets, favorite foods (you may no longer eat them with pleasure), DNA, deepest darkest secrets, and attorney’s fees (which is a few tons of worm food - figure out how to buy it after I already took everything belonging to you) in any action brought to enforce this agreement and shall be free to pursue all rights that SiliconJon had as of the date of this letter as if this letter had never been signed.
This law firm represents SiliconJon (aka Big Meanie PooPooHead). If you are represented by legal counsel, please direct this letter to your attorney immediately and have your attorney notify us of the next office party in which we may gleefully attend.
We are writing to notify you that your unlawful copying of SiliconJon's patent of communicating with other organic entities infringes upon our client’s exclusive copyrights. Accordingly, you are hereby directed to
CEASE AND DESIST ALL PATENT INFRINGEMENT.
SiliconJon is the owner a patent in various aspects of interentity communications. Under United States patent law, SiliconJon’s patents have been in effect since the date that Patent #101101100100100101011001010010010101110100100100110 was created. All patentable aspects of interentity communications are patented under United States patent law.
I'm curious as to why they would even need to retain this for law enforcement purposes if the "Big Brother" boxes are functional. Perhaps as a backup resource, or a place to go for lesser law enforcement personnel? I could see them retaining it for analytical or marketing purposes - since that is the thing these days. But so long as the NSA data duplicators are running it seems a cable run to the fusion centers should be an easy centralization technique for them to use, and all is stored for as long as they desire, which is usually until a FOIA request or criminal investigation is sparked, in which case it's either destroyed or (more likely) moved and relabelled.
