Life in the future

King County is using grocery store databases to look for those buying pet supplies so they can fine them for not registering their animals.

The future is stupid.

    Wow… really? That is just… Pathetic!

    If you think they can’t tell your religion from tracking your groceries…

    This stuff fails Jews in the Attic.

    As I recall, immediately following the 9/11 attacks Safeway coughed up every ‘loyalty card’ file with a middle eastern sounding name on it to the feds without even being asked to do so.

    Haven’t set foot in a Safeway (voluntarily) since.

    What about all the seniors that are reduced to eating dog food, because the evil republicans are taking away their socsecurity checks?

    I hear about them every four years.

    Ravenwood, you’re lucky; I hear it every other year.

    If the pet stores are agreeing to this, then you have a new list of places to not do business.

    If the pet stores are being forced to do this, there needs to be a lawsuit. Barring a warrant this is illegal.

    The pet stores sell the data to a third party. The third party sells the data to other marketers and… King County.

    And if you think other governments aren’t doing this, well…

    Don’t use loyalty cards then. Boycott any store that sells the data to the local government too.

    I used to use Jenny’s number (867-5309) but that doesn’t seem to work anymore.

    I don’t think it’s fair if the dead vote, but I’ve got no problems letting them buy groceries.

    Tell ’em you buy food for your parent’s dog and they live outside the county.

    Mike, the point of the reference to the third party doctrine is that under current 4th A precedent they don’t need a warrant, even if the stores didn’t trip over themselves to sell the data.
