Capital Punishment Does Not Need to Kill.
Have you ever committed a misdemeanor? That may give ChoicePoint the legal right to ruin your life forever. No really, FOREVER. He he he, whoa Nellie! When you get to heaven and the Easter Bunny goes over your list of sins it will be cross referenced with the ChoicePoint database. And you thought the idea of them selling your identity to criminals was frightening.
But don't worry if you own shares in this company. First of all they probably have never issued any shares so whatever they sold you was probably printed in crayon on the back of a children's menu and so is already worthless. Secondly, I am sure either the courts or some new law being crafted in secret somewhere as you read this will protect ChoicePoint from any consequences from their actions. People don't screw up this hard, this often and this publicly without government assistance.
Canadians have been concerned recently because "our" Federal government has been using American companies to store our personal data which could potentially be seized by the American government and used against us in the interest of national security without telling us or giving us any recourse. (Nothing serious, just things like sending our citizens to Syria to be tortured without informing the Canadian government - you know, little annoyances) But now it is obvious we have nothing to worry about because the information they will be using against us won't even be true.
I feel much better! But why are my eye mussels doing that jumpy thing again? I have been waiting for my student loan reassessment to be processed so I can afford to start taking my sanity pills again, maybe that is it. Funny how those things take four weeks to work yet they stop working after four days.
(Now where was I... Oh yes!)
...and in conclusion Bush is a putz.
