  1. Of course they are. Every entity EVERY ENTITY that gathers your information is selling it. In sales it was a challenge to generate leads. Not any more. They just buy it from people who collect it.

    When you go to buy something all a company or business should get is your payment. Your address to ship it but that's it. Everything else is just an excuse to gather and sell your info.

  2. Difficult for government to find a a way to make money?? At least they're making some money?

  7. I just heard someone condemn the seven hours CNN spent in town halls with the Democratic presidential candidates discussing climate change and global warming as a waste of time, would not have spent seven minutes watching, that tells me they don’t give a dam, have no regard for the health of the planet, and its clean air and water, and so for them, I offer a years supply of water purification pills and an air filtration mask free of charge that I just placed on order with Amazon…

  8. But see now like every good stooge Varney has to wait until he hears what Trump says or tweets about it before he knows what position to take on the subject!!!

  9. Social security is too. I know this because when I got married and had to change my name they misspelled my name and in short order I started receiving junk mail with the misspelling on it.

  10. DMV and other govt agencies are making our personal info publicly available. And there are companies that gather all of our info and put it up on Google for all to see. Just Google your name and you'll see your address, phone number, date of birth, etc., and they'll offer to sell more of your info for a fee. How do we put a stop to this?

  11. It's time the DMV across the country have an INTERNAL AUDIT….I'm sure we would learn quite a bit about what exactly they have been engaged in AGAINST the AMERICAN people!

  12. yet roads are in bad repair, they give illegal immigrants voter registration, and a drivers license instead of turning them in to authorities,(aiding and abating a criminal). But legal citizens are being sold out for their own greed

  13. Next time you visit the DMV, arrive early when the employees do and photograph every employee license plate, then go inside and get every employee face. Post your pics online with adsense so you can make money on them. Link to everyone who does this and be sure to share the links so we can all get rich off their faces.
