    My dad wrote an anti-ICBM editorial in the seventies called "Less Than A Megadeath", picked up by the NYT.  The local Birchers drove him out of his last parish because he was a commie who belonged to Clergy & Laymen Concerned and supported sex education in schools.  We're pretty sure the FBI had files on us for our anti war activism.  We still walk free, get jobs, never get visits when a shooter goes nuts.  The government always spies on citizens who are out of the mainstream.  And quite frankly I hope they scare the shit out of NRA gunrunners, survivalists with arsenals, and Dominionists.  There are some dangerous people in this country whose paranoia hurts innocents.  They abdicated their rights as citizens long ago.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

    •  Bravo for your dad! (0+ / 0-)

      I'm sorry he had to suffer for his ideals, but grateful to him for taking a stand for the good.

      As for surveillance, sometimes when I'm outdoors,
      I'll flip a bird to the sky, just in case there's a drone up there.  ;-)
