    It was the "Invasion of the Hollywood Screenwriters" yesterday, with each one proclaiming the End of Time arriving quicker than the last.

    Look around. There has never been more freedom in any country on Earth at any time in history than there is right now in America, and that is not gonna end tomorrow or the day after tomorrow or in 1984. And it will stay that way because we have a Supreme Court determining the laws, because of each one of us, and because we have an army to fight external threats.

    I don't know what anarcho-Libertarians expect from the government, but if the state can protect Americans from terrorism without violating the Constitution, then I believe that it has not only the power to do so but the fucking duty. And I've done the actual analysis of the process using the Supreme Court's test in privacy cases. An anonymous phone number is not a "Stop and Frisk" and not the "East German Stazi." It is constitutional. (See my analysis in a post below).  

    I'm glad that I'm not so damn paranoid that I think the government cares a shit about what I'm doing; rather, I'd just as soon enjoy my freedom.

    I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.
