The professional's version of Facebook for use as a career networking tool. You have a "public profile" that corresponds to a Facebook "wall." Instead of "friends", you have "connections." You gain access to the connections of your connections unless they "hide" them and you can hide yours. When you have a connection, you have their contact information. You can have professional recommendations posted on your page.

LinkedIn is also a frequently used sock puppet for identity thieves. Never accept connections from people you don't know. Never put your real physical address into the contact section; give an e-mail address and an unlisted telephone number.

LinkedIn is also a tool that many recruiters (scalpers/headhunters) use in a dishonest manner. Their attempts to connect with you are phishing expeditions to get your connection list. The job that they claim to have is nearly always fake; it is bait, if you accept their connection you will never hear from them again or they will tell you that the job is filled. Recruiters always hide all their connections so you get nothing from them (all take and no give)

Ignore any offer for connections from a recruiter. If you want to contact them, do so outside of LinkedIn. Read their public profile (many recruiters have contact information there). If so, call or Email directly (use unlisted phone). If not, send an InMessage through LinkedIn giving them only an Email address and an unlisted phone number.
LinkedIn can be a useful tool to keep up with your professional contacts

The new catch phrase of Obamunism term two, featuring the widespread spying by the federal government on ordinary citizens using all sorts of technologies. It is bad satire on the "Yes We Can" emphasized during Obama's first term. In many instances of history, this is one of the conditions that defines when a society transitions from relative freedom to dictatorship.
A Washington reporter asked,"What do you say about violating the privacy of average Americans?"

"Yes We Scan", replied Obama.

An additional derogatory title given for Barrack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America, by his detractors. The title alludes to his lack of leadership and his obsession with campaigning for anything (nearly always leftist or socialist) that he wants rammed down our throats. It is intended as a parody on the term "Commander-In-Chief."
We need to impeach the Campaigner-In-Chief

Also referred to as "Politicianese." The language used by politicians for the express purpose of misleading and deceiving the voters while they figure out their next lie. It is a distinct dialect of Newspeak that has become embedded into nearly every real world language to scramble the minds of the electorate, to get them spouting doubleplusgood duckspeak; and most of all, to keep them from thinking for themselves. It is a combination of "politician" and "speak" put together in true Orwellian 1984 fashion.
"Look for the hope for the change of the hope for the change" said Barrack in politicianspeak.

Also a movement in the United States Military, especially in the US Air Force; whose goal is to establish the supremacy of Militant Fundamentalist Christianity in the Armed Forces. Not only do these types exist in civilian life, but they seek to turn are military into a Crusader Force from the inside. This end-product "Crusader Force would then be used to suppress "the heathens" in all places both foreign and domestic. Younger officers and enlisted are the most susceptible to the coercion of this movement.

Most of them also classify any Christian who does not subscribe to all of their beliefs as "heathens" as well. They never heard of Freedom of Religion, and seek to replace democracy with theocracy. The author finds it strange that their favorite image is that of a Christian Knight and Crusader; who in real life/time/setting would have been a Roman Catholic (a faith that most Dominionists despise). Politicians who support social conservative causes are often at least covertly sympathetic to these types.
The goal of Dominionism is first a Middle East Crusade, and then conquest of the world.

What the White House will become if Barack Hussein Obama has his way and becomes the emperor of the world. A play on the British Royal Residence, Buckingham Palace. Its arrival signals the end of freedom as we know it.
Barackingham Palace is something that we all need to avoid for the sake of our freedom.
