Susan:
This video basically says it all in clear and cogent terms that intellectually honest people of any political persuasion should be able to agree with. Ask you self how far are you willing to let this country go into the abyss before we say no more? What does it take before we reach the point where something must be done? Ask your self if this is the country you grew up in, if this is the country that our brave soldiers have fought and died for? If you are honest with yourself then I don't think you can answer yes to those questions..

Props to Crooks and liars for having copies up!

Wow.

Please god let popular culture be the medium through which the message is heard. One of the reasons anti-terrorism legislation is not objected to is that people really don't think it will happen to them, that complete stripping of your rights. As trans people, I can guarantee you, it will. As a white, straight, gender-conforming able-bodied person, I cannot guarantee you that it won't.

The predominant factor behind anti-terrorism legislation is guilty until proven innocent. Do you really want the police to make the decisions about who is guilty and who is innocent? Right now, they pick on brown people. That's how the Third Reich started...then it expanded to other groups. In the immortal words of the Reverend Martin Niemoller:

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak out.

Speak out, dammit. Before they come for you. And convince others to as well.

And I really wish I could get away with that much courtroom dramatic effect when I was arguing - plus I wish I could afford suits like that. I don't look nearly as spiffy in a suit and I can't say the things that were said there, plus it would cost you, the ordinary person, $20,000.00 to get me there. So don't depend on your "legal" rights. Use your political voice.

Susan:
Anyone wanna answer my question on this post? Come on I know someone is out there just itching. What is your personal threshhold before your patriotism is triggered and you finally speak out and say no more!

--- End quote ---

No, this is not the same country that I became a citizen of.  It has become greedier, overly self-righteous, a busy-body in the affairs of other nations and has taken the first step in removing our cilil liberties in the supposed name of security.

The last general election, I did not vote for a single incumbant.  I plan to keep up this policy until we stop going down this slipery slope.

OK you did ask!

I am more terrified of our present admin than any threat of external terrorism, our elected terrorists are scarey enough.

At the bottom of our main page you can see who is online.  Members, guests and those lil things called crawlers, bots, spys, harvesters.  Do you suppose that our elected officials have invested in or control a company that uses these "to protect us from ourselves"

Yahoo, MSN and now Google have capitulated and are allowing the government access.  Only for statistics you know.  Our personal info would never be given out--oh sure I believe that.

Wanna fly to Grandmas house instead of going through the woods?  Better be prepared for the inquisition.  Homeland security,  more like insecurity.  They want to ck my baggage go for it.  I put all my very personal toys right on top, covered with a liberal coating of Surgi Lube. 

Gonna buy a new or almost new car.  Ya might want to ck and see if the computer can be accessed and by who.  Is your location trackable and again, by who, when and how.    Car theft, get a Lo Jack.  Can the location be read without your knowledge?

Folks George Orwell has come home to roost.

Once more I will say: If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem
