Default Good News for Redneck Crazies

If your a terrorist speak like you come from Alabama!

Apparently the voice recognition software that is being introduced to monitor, log and record all our telephone conversations by the Department of Homeland Security has trouble with the southern drawl.

Ridiculous is not the word, for 2 reasons.

1. All our calls our now logged and transcripted - big brother is watching!

2. In this day and age they can't make software that recognises all accents! - they probably can but Bush gave the contract to a buddy rather than the best company for the job!

I believe they had a similar problem in England with the Lancashire accent.

Sorry, but you'll have to explain this one to me Patrick!

Stop groaning, I just want a short explanation this time!

Are we being recorded?

Under the patriot act all telephone conversations can be recorded and logged, all emails can be looked by the government, all your video and library rentals are monitored.

The short version, all calls are being listened to, the likelyhood is that if the voice recognition software doesn't hear words it is looking for (hate, bomb, kill, attack, intercontinential ballistic missile) then your phone conversation will not be saved anywhere as this would take up too much space and time for the FBI to listen to every single call. The recognition software will be triggered by certain words and record and log the call to be analysed later.
