    Ben Franklin got it right and it is still relevant.

    The time to object was years ago. When the Patriot Act was first proposed.
    It’s too late now. They have that power, and they won’t give it up.

    They Who? Power is always fleeting. Shame that Stalin or Hitler didn’t win, then you could be really upset, just before being shot.

    IF they can use the information at the national level, how soon will it be before your neighbors can buy/own your data? Imagine your NSA data being used by your state, your city, and church, and your neighborhood! Scared yet? I’ll bet politicians are even frightened!

    The evil “they”

    The fact is that about 1/3 of population is in favor, 1/3 against 1/3 undecided.

    no side believes itself wrong, so saying you have the right side does not resolve the debate.

    You will need over 55% against, this is courtesy of that any politician’s careers will go down in flames if patriot act is removed and any event that can be painted as terrorism occurs.

    Wasn’t there a recent news report about NYC police illegally accessing NSA data to check on their own wives and fellow officers? Perhaps with the intent of arranging a “hit”? The real danger in all this surveillance is the accumulated data falling into the hands of disreputable “authorities”!

    The “Subject to Search” list left off two of the alltime favorites: rectums and vaginas.

    Keep the public terrorized and fighting with each other.
    Panic the herd into the direction you want them to run.
    Watch as they give up their rights to false ‘authorities who know better than we do’.

    -————
    I did some more research, looking for this. It wasn’t NSA data, but NCIC data. The principle is the same.

    @ReasonsVentriloquist

    “Rendition” started under the Elder Bush, then expanded under the Con. Democrat Clinton becoming “extraordinary rendition” and carried through under GBW then another Con. Democrat Obama it was mostly stopped and long range executions in their place. Seems that most of the American people are fine with extra judicial murders by our President. I don’t but the Plutocrats want it and they are winning. Been winning at least since 1980.s

    I’m not “afraid” of the airport security, more like “resentful”.

    It was hard to miss, with that goofy look on his face. I was noting that the list didn’t include those orifices, and it doesn’t.
