“Data about Americans “reasonably believed to constitute terrorism information” may be permanently retained.”
Reasonably is subjective.
Today, Dec 13, 2012, the Taliban is the friend
of the US gov’t, and the US people who support
the US Constitution are its new enemy.
But don’t let our military operatives criticize the Taliban...
It can’t happen here! Why we...........never mind.
People drawn to careers in government are all about control; it’s their meat and drink, their whole raison d’etre.
They believe they are in a better position to know what’s good for you than you are, yourself, and their aim is to force their beliefs on all others.
It’s a form of mental illness, but it’s extremely prevalent these days, unfortunately.
Yes; I get it. Up is Down, Black is White, Tea Party is Bad, OCCUPY ANYWHERE is Good, Union Thugs can beat you black and blue if you’re a Conservative, and IT IS YOUR FAULT, Etc. - Mr. Teleprompter says one thing today, another tomorrow; and take your pick which thing you WANT to believe.
Scary? Possibly. Question is, if things start to look like a coup d'etat, who is going to step forward and put the proverbial bell on the cat?
So much for the First and Fourth Amendments; but, then, everyone knows the constitution is dead, anyway, and of little save historical interest.
One wonders if the Founding Fathers ever envisioned an American government which would simply ignore the constitution at its whim...?
This is what the future holds.
For the entire planet.
For centuries to come.
But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. - Winston Churchill

Maybe when they take away private transportation I’ll care? Just another brick in the wall.
The government profile of Reverend Al Sharpton:
Weight: 4,759 lbs.
Religion: Nuwambian Jewish Rastazoroastrian
Terrorist Affiliations: MS/NBC, Nabisco, Dunkin’ Donuts
NOTE: This is a raw file, and information within has not been verified. Sources include USDA Entomology Division, the US Railroad Retirement Board, the FBI, and a bunch of stuff we found on the Internet.
Conclusions: 47% chance of being a terrorist, 63% chance of being a drug abuser, high probability of being euthanized as he will be too expensive for Obamacare.
Recommendation: Continue to compile vast amounts of useless data before deciding if he needs to be detained by the military.
Sounds like nobody has listened to this warning by Benjamin Franklin...
who is the greater terrorist? the one to be most feared?
one who blows his opposition up? or one that gathers info and turns the state’s citizens on each other?
who is the more successful one? that remains to be seen... folk should have a pretty good idea where this is headed.
societal genocide , no, societal suicide awaits us all.
when radicalism and statism merge their databases, what do you get? The DNC or AQ mailing list perhaps?
we live in a brash neutered world.. courtesy of an electorate that can’t spell much less read account balances but they can tweet and text. go figure.

We are already in the world of “1984” with ‘ double-talk ‘ and ‘ double speak ‘ , and headed towards the world of “Matrix “ .
Great! What the government will discover about my e-mails, Facebook postings and Conservative website comments:
1) I don’t like the democrat party.
2) When I go to the shooting range I get pissed because my wife is a better shot with our GLock than I am.
3) Obama-care will be a cross between the ruthlessness of the IRS and the customer efficiency of the DMV
4) The Georgetown Hoyas still suck.
5) Bone-daddies is better than Hooters.
6) Lloyd Dogget is a crook.
7) I like and support the Fair Tax group.
8) FA Hayek, Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell are my favorite writers
9) I read a website called stuff black people do not like and rather enjoy it.
10) I get in furious debates with my gay,left wing cousin regarding Dos Equis vs Shiner.
Bush’s fault. Big time.
