    Principled Obama stated that he would be different from Bush, vis a vis spying on citizens.

    And those of us who tune in to  Sibel Edmond and her crew over at Boiling Frogs find out that if at some point in the future, we are viewed as terrorists, then our conversations from the past can be reconstituted, somehow. (Modern day miracles of technology.)

    So they have our conversations.

    And  news on some websites this week, that Trans Canada has been working with the Nebraska police to help them see that people protesting the XL Pipeline are terrorists and should be viewed as terrorists, then the game is over. All of the Monies that were going into our expensive wars are now gong into Surveillance. So they need to have someone to spy on,  and they need to start putting people away into those Fusion Centers. How do we change this - when we could be put away for attempting to do so?

    Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.

      Pennsylvania who had DHS take names of all who attended Gasland screenings at local theaters.

      Didn't you know? watching a documentary could make you a terrorist! Run Forrest Run!

      Just take a look at the mayhem in LA, ALA, Fla, and MS, during the Gulf Gusher.

      All sorts of strangeness was happening.

      People who don't want to die of corexit or burning oil poisoning, who speak up, well they are terrorists too!
