1.
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

2.
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.

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.

6.
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.

7.
An additional derogatory (and more sinister) title given for Barrack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America, by his detractors. The title alludes to his knee-jerk response occurring every time someone in his administration pulls some dirty Chicago-style New Left Socialist political chicanery that tramples on the rights of the American people and makes him look bad personally. The response always goes something like this: "I didn't know anything about it." In the end, this makes him look like either a liar or a fool to any intelligent human being. It is intended as a parody on the term "Commander-In-Chief."
"I didn't know anything about it", said the Denier-In-Chief at the news conference, "and we don't need a special prosecutor for this."
