Who's watching Santa Claus?

This weekend, one of the world's biggest spies with one of the globe's sophisticated surveillance systems will be visiting Minnesota.  He is a huge "intelligence" gatherer of data on people.  He keeps lists.  I wonder if he has an enemies list or intelligence system?. He does "black bag" operations through chimneys.

But at the same time, many people invite him into their homes for milk, cookies, and a possibly a bit of peppermint schnapps to keep him warm.  Watch out he may be collecting data on you.

He is able to fly unimpeded through the air.  He is equipped with the latest GPS tracking equipment to observe people who may be "naughty or good".  There are also reports he may be getting a very sophisticated camera through the help of the Pentagon.  Somewhere up north, he has a very large computer detailing our moves and aspects of our lives, and labeling us as associates, persons of interest, and suspects.  Remember, he knows "where you are sleeping".  OH! OH! and HO! HO!

With the ability to monitor our actions and movements, he revels in having this ability.  Supposedly, he only uses it for good.

As I looked more into this character and his activities I could not find any GAO or Legislative Auditor reports. No reports on his activities or how he uses his surveillance system.  I could not find any legislative or Congressional hearing as part of the oversight process.

He has many informers and different ways which makes it easy for people to get on a "list".  I wonder what the threshold is for a person to get on the list.  I wonder how you got off the list.

I have learned a lot about this gentleman, and recently saw a "news report" by Ray Stevens, which is entitled, "Santa Claus is Watching You"


I encourage Santa Claus to be guided by the Fair Information principles:
  1. There must be a way for a person to find out what information about the person is in a record and how it is used.
  2. There must be a way for a person to prevent information about the person that was obtained for one purpose from being used or made available for other purposes without the person's consent.
  3. There must be a way for a person to correct or amend a record of identifiable information about the person.
  4. Any organization creating, maintaining, using, or disseminating records of identifiable personal data must assure the reliability of the data for their intended use and must take precautions to prevent misuses of the data.
  5. Any organization creating, maintaining, using, or disseminating records of identifiable personal data must assure the reliability of the data for their intended use and must take precautions to prevent misuses of the data.
These principles are good for a start, but Santa and his operations need more accountability, transparency, and openness.  Santa has a different view than a great number of other people how you achieve that.  There needs to be a checks and balances to his activities.
