Ah but David, it's your beloved Bush who made surveillance
of citizens legal via the patriot act. What's ugly is that you
reelected in an incompetent, and are still regretting losing him.
That is factually inaccurate.
I know of no reason to love either Bush.
I 've said so many times.
However, thay both defeated candidates who were much worse.
Surveillance of citizens was legal long before the Bushes.
U have no idea what u r saying; u just fake it as u go along.
I don t like the Patriot Act, but its effects are minor
spying on libraries to see what books suspects check out.
Having an incompetent is not
What 's much worse is having a COMPETENT
like Stalin, Hitler, Saddam or obama.
But thanks for offering something concrete about your fears.
As America turns in Nazi Germany and/or Stalinist Russia
I'll be saying, 'Well David said it would happen - even though
neither of those regimes had the surveillance technologies he
said will cause the the US's (or was it Australia's?) transition. '
Very sadly, I think it 's going to be a black hole
of Borglike slavery to government that will suck down
our entire species.
