  •  I always get a kick out of the idea that (0+ / 0-)

    police and intel agencies would go to such lengths to eavesdrop and spy on us when they won't listen to the exact same thing yelled in the street through a bullhorn.
    During the VietNam era, there were "radical" groups that consisted almost entirely of infiltrators from a dozen different agencies, none of whom knew the other infiltrators (We found this out many years afterward).
    If all they do is listen, you have no problem, in fact that can be a good thing. When infiltration becomes dangerous is when the spies become agitators, when they start pushing for violence and other illegal tactics.
    That's when it's time to walk briskly away.
    And why an anarchist group (and I DON'T mean OWS) that loudly proclaims it's intent to bring down the powerstructure is surprised that they are being snooped, that boggles me.
    OF COURSE they are going to watch you closely, if they didn't and you turned out to be al Qaeda, they'd be held negligent.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

    •  our local fbi plants burned the BofA (0+ / 0-)

      with a little help that was ineffective.

      ..from a book by one of the fbi plants.

      currently they provide detonators and explosive materials to wanna be terrorists to entrap them into idiotic behavior.

      As a tactic that is sure to be exposed, it's good in that it provides enough concern and paranoia among real plotters that maybe they will be ineffective, or something...

      This machine kills Fascists.
