Sadly the federal conviction rate in the U.S has even surpassed that of Nazi Germany, it stands at a 99% conviction rate. Germany was 90%. Big brother is here for Evil.

No. Not really.
95%. Big difference.
Russia, yes. America, not yet.

so it is crucial that the laws being enforced are just and that they are justly enforced.  neither is the case now.  ron paul '12.

That was my thought. How the hell can one NOT come to the conclusion that it is not already here?

Just because it is not in the form that the movies show (which is not be accident) does not mean we are not neck deep in one now.

Naive article.

how deep are the big banks involved in Google, facebook, the telcos, the media etc? Easy question, easy answer. They own our bodies AND our souls.

The spirit and intent of the Freedom of Information Act and similar State Public Records Legislation were enacted so that citizens could know what the State and Federal Gov are collecting on them.  The ultimate conundrum being that  nanosecond aggregation has turned these laws against us.   these laws were NOT enacted in order to give EVERYONE's Brother, snooping rights into our private lives.

Terrible argument. THEY decide what is right or wrong, not you. If they decide youve done wrong then you can be detained without charge or trial. You cant tell anyone that you did no wrong. 


Wake up.

I'm sorry, but by and large us Americans are too stupid to save. Oil goes up, gasoline goes down. Stocks flat or up, gold and silver down. (Think Xmas sale and run up more debt.) There is a sucker punch coming...and the majority aren't ready. Are you?

When Senator Schumer seemed unaware of some of his Bill’s provisions, Professor Kopel suggested he redraft the text to reflect his intent.

If Schumer seemed unaware it was just an act. He was perfectly aware his Act was violating a Constitution he does not in any way agree with.

Not a peep out of that piece of shit when in 2008/2009 he got massive donations from banks/bankers/other wall street elements and kept his big mouth shut about everything. He's no advocate of "the people".. what a loser.

and while we're at it, john lennon's "imagine" would have worked better than the foreign policies of the last two presidents, as gimlet eyed real politic, closely calculating purely selfish benefits for the u.s. in blood and treasure.

Of course it is for our own protection.

This used to be the domain of those wearing tin foil hats. Now it's 1984. Cameras EVERYWHERE. A record of everything you buy online or with a credit card. Calls and emails are monitored for specific "words and patterns". A simple google search can turn up a honey pot of information on just about anyone - even an interactive map of the street they live on. Hell, even the Fed is monitoring sites just like ZH - so they can "communicate their message" better.

And the future? Well, the youth are too busy posting every detail of their lives on facebook - I mean what could go wrong?

This is an enlightened age, there are no bad people in a democracy.

Oh, and democracies don't go to war with other democracies, which proves there are no bad people running democracies.

This is as good as it gets.

Now go back to sleep.

Starting several years ago I created a 'paragraph' filled with suspicious phrases and ending with a disclaimer that I was wondering who might be reading my emails other than the intended recipients. I would attach that to the end of most of the emails I sent. No one has contacted me yet. There are also techniques, if one so desires, to send messages that cannot be cracked, not that I've ever felt the need to use one.

As for the lack of privacy, has anyone else noticed (http://dailycaller.com/2011/12/06/library-of-congress-to-receive-entire-...) that the Library of Congress will host the Twitter archives? Not being a Twitter user, I wonder: is there anything in the EULA that allows a user to opt out of this? I never used to read all those supposedly boilerplate agreements, but after this and the rehypothecation garbage in brokerage account agreements, I think I'll spend more time reading.

The MSM has assumed a role that would do Himmler proud. They suppress anything the government/TPTB would want kept from the people. They allow politicians to lie without being taken to task for it, as long as it benefits TPTB. A good recent example is the outrageous lies from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz regarding unemployment now compared to when Obama took office. Was it covered in the local newspaper, the Sun-Sentinel? Not that I ever saw...

This is why, in the eyes of our masters, the internet must be controlled. The truth may not set us free (at least not in this life) but it will tell us who to target for elimination come the next election cycle.

Terry Gilliam's greatest film, Brazil, is an under-appreciated dystopian masterpiece. It's funny, too.
