Rush And George Orwell Had A Dream

                                                                              Â

George Orwell was only 25 years late. He also got the name wrong of the figurehead used by the totalitarian government in his novel(prophecy) "1984". It's not "Big Brother" keeping a watchful eye on you. It's Google. Viewing Google Earth's Street View is creepy and titillating much like "2 Girls One Cup".(I will not link you to that Saphonic scatological gluttony, look it up) At first I thought, "Holy Shit! This is cool!", then it was, "Holy shit, they're looking at me right now." They market it as a helpful tool for finding that out of the way Brazillian Massage Parlor.  Thanks for helping me get that hot oil handy Google, mums the word right? WRONG. Next thing you know, your wife is receiving pictures of you entering the den of iniquity in her e-mail. Why? Because you once answered an on-line survey condoning the right to bear arms or that time you sent an e-mail to the guy in accounts payable saying the Vice-President was a tool. Google is letting us know they know and everybody else will know. Â

Example 1: The War On Drugs

Example 2: The War On Deer

Google did slip up by letting this image leak through the central scrutinizer's grasp:

What the fuck is this? It Looks like ET doing some kind of alien pole dance. Maybe it was trying to warn us of the impending death of privacy, "Hello Earth, get ready to take a dump while your government watches."

Between this and everybody(well almost everybody)Â giving out their info on Facebook, Myspace, and every other "Social Network"(Evidence Gathering) site, Brother Google will be all supreme Great Leader of The Workers by 2012.(That's a hundred years earlier than the Greatest Band In North America, Rush, prophesied it would happen with their album "2112")

Sadly, their prediction that everyone would be wearing silk kimonos by the 21st century has still not caught on.

I'll be watching you watching me with them watching us on Google.
