    Something to think about:

    I was sent a link to this editorial from the Guardian and the question is asked why Americans are not more outraged that the people running "Total Information Awareness" are thugs and outlaws. The point being is that it is bad enough to have TIA, but then to put in charge a man that has already made a mockery of the Constitution and avoided prosecution back in the Iran/Contra days only after a deal was struck for his testimony. He obviously didn't care about the laws then.... and now he's in charge of something as sensitive, unconstitutional, brazenly Orwellian as this and promises not to "misuse" ito_O?

    It's sad that the point has to be made from Britain. He rightfully asks why Americans can allow such people back into governement to run a massive computer database to keep information on everything everyone buys. It's a good question.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    Too many people don't realize this very simple truth.

    Old Ben had it right, Mike.
    Try www.swickey.com for the quotes about dissent from the founding fathers themselves. They would be considered subversive today! There's a good article on there about "Free Speech Zones" as well.
