Welcome to the New American Zeitgeist. Love, Big Brother

It is a dark day for those of us that love America.

Today, President Bush, in his infinite wisdom, decided to approve the use of American spy satellites for use on civilians.  And they call the liberals the communists.  Whatever.

Although the party line is that the first use will be to keep our borders under control, a popular soapbox for conservatives, they admit the plans are they will be using them for “civil and criminal acts” soon enough.
The scary thing is that you can just hear the Homeland Security official salivating when he brags about how little they will be reigned in under current law.  “There is little if any policy, guidance or procedures regarding the collection, exploitation and dissemination of domestic [spying with this kind of technology].”

When will we cross the line into totalitarianism?  Have we already?

    I think we passed it a few miles back, right past Taco Bell.

    Someday, when this country is looked upon by history, they’ll be able to put a finger on GWB as the guy that ruined it all.

    Doesn’t Karl Rove need a fishing buddy?

    I think this should only be legal if everyone can have free live 24h access to a satellite dedicated to tracking GWB’s every move. Let’s see…how many hours does he actually spend working? 😉 We could even get Michael Moore to narrate it….

    Isn’t there supposed to be a comment about “If I have to give up a few of my freedoms to stop the terrorists and if you were a REAL patriot, then you would too!” Or are we over that tired and played foolishness?

    Great post! I read about it here first.
