Privacy is a tool of the terrorists
Posted by bender
A couple days ago a few of the meat-popsicles in Washington D.C. voted to expand some of scary parts of The PATRIOT Act.
It’s now going to be easier for the FBI to walk into my doctor’s office and get proof that I am crazy. Special Agents can go to my local library or Barnes and Noble and see that I check out/buy books like He’s Just Not That Into You Because He’s Freaking Mentally Ill. (Strictly for research purposes, I’m researching how to act so I don’t seem insane when I meet women.)
They’ve also made it illegal for anyone, be it the library/bookstore/doctor’s office or you, the investigated, to talk about the fact you were info-buggered with a rolled up copy of the Bill of Rights that the Justice Department uses to smoke pot while laughing at my cholesterol count.
When did a desire for privacy become probably cause for invasion of Constitutionally-guaranteed privacy? Surely not 9/11? 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists got into this country despite their visa applications being woefully suspect. How does seeing what books I buy or borrow help stop that?
But, I always forget this part, if you’re not fully onboard with the War on Terrorismâ„¢, you’re riding with Bin Laden.
What ever happened to that dude anyway?
