Employers Now have right to ask for FB PWs?

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 31, 2012, 10:05 PM




Okay, did I skip a dimension?  

www.zdnet.com/blog/facebook/ho…

Can someone explain this to me?  Because I think I have something crazy and stupid in my ear.

Let me get this straight, our government VOTED DOWN an amendment that states employers CANNOT demand passwords to our personal online social networks.  As in, because this amendment was voted down, if I were to get a job right now and that employer states, as a condition for consideration of employment, I must give up my Youtube password, my DeviantArt password, and my Facebook and MySpace passwords and all usernames and emails associated with these accounts to that interviewer so that they can go and and well meddle in my affairs and see what religion I am, what my marital status is, who I'm dating, who my friends are, pose as me to those people and manipulate things that pretty much goes against the terms and conditions of a social network?

Did I just jump into the Twilight Zone of What the Fuckery?

Can someone tell me that this is just a flub, that maybe they just not voted on this amendment right now because someone who wrote it misspelled something or the grammar was wrong and they're just going back and rewriting it.  Because something is wrong with this country if such a bill was turned down.

Excuse me, I shouldn't have to give anyone my user name and password, potential employer or not.

Can someone please just clarify what's going on here?

Right to Privacy is nowhere in the Bill of Rights, sadly.

Agreed. Can I finally do away with the morons of DC? Because they're obviously not running this country correctly anymore.

It's a government by the corporations for the corporations. The corporate personhood declared by the Citizen's united have made them a royal class that can get away with just about anything. Thanks to right wing obstructionism for the last four years we're a headed towards being a third world country with first world technology now.

Republicans bitch about big government, than turn around and impose their own version of it on the people. They seemed be more confused about their identity than a bisexual. They talk much about China taking our jobs, but seek to emulate it when it comes to control over people's lives but want to impose Christian sharia law instead of Communism. With Church Bishops and the rich as the imams and Ayatollahs.

Ironically enough, the Mormon's have their origins as Christian Communists and their front runner is the perfect guy for the job.
