I had written an earlier diary on the fact that DHS was spying on OWS here http://www.dailykos.com/... but a comment from lgcmp got me thinking....
Here's the comment:
Considering that they monitor even tiny (2+ / 0-)Does that make you concerned that the government is keeping an eye on you here? That they are able to (I assume) track down who you are(regardless of your nom de plume here). Does it have an effect on what you say, the words you use here etc. etc.?
peacable groups with NO realistic odds of affecting the status quo ... it would be surprising indeed if they weren't concerned about an enormous group that HAS affected the country's direction.
Does it make your a$$h0!# pucker a bit when you imagine big brother watching everything you write? Does it make you feel like you're living in a 3rd world country somewhere where protesters are identified and then targeted(ok, that's a stretch).
I must admit it makes me pause for a bit and think about it. Poll below
