    Scary. And true.

    I blame the American people, myself included, who were afraid to actually fight for right.
    The Patriot Act is not a gray area, it is outright criminal in the statutes of our Constitution.
    I I did nothing out of fear of losing “stuff” and lost freeedon instead.
    .
    I don’t rant against the act, I could have acted when it would have counted and I did not.
    .
    Almost nothing left to lose, highest per capita incarceration rate in the world.
    Victimless crimes are political by definition, we are worse than any third world country.
    .
    You and I sit behind ours walls and let them.

    Continued and expanded by your favorite president Barack Obama. It kinda goes along with his policy to close Gitmo, end the Bush tax cuts, end the Afghan war, fix the tax code. My favorite though is change the partisan atmosphere in Washington and maintain the most transparent administration in American history. That’s our pres, George Bush lite…

    Don’t be too rough on yourself. A whole lot of people I know screamed like hell at the Patriot Act, the Iraq war, the drone program etc. Somehow they ignored us and did what they were going to anyway.

    Reagan’s folks, and earlier (think DICK CHENEY) started burning our rights at the stake some time ago. 9/11 and the “Patriot (not!) Act” were passed off by RIGHT wing forces, threatening charges of treason against anyone denying them their attack on the Constitution. Yes, Gitmo never should have been built, and should have been closed, as well as other obfuscations of the law stopped, but it is those same “conservative” forces in BOTH parties, that have offended our rights.


    But, if you think it’s the government, or Obama, that take advantage, read that “agreement” you “agree” to in order to load almost any software from any corporation in the U.S. that uses the “pubic” airwaves. “Privacy” has been taken over by piracy, and it is the “corporate nation” within our borders, driving that.

    That new petaflop computer that homeland security is building in Utah is going to listen in on every phone conversation and email made in the continental USA and like IBM’s Watson will be smart enough to analyse the content. As a bonus it will store it in memory indefinitely. It will also have enough muscle to defeat any encryption.
