Welcome my Son, Welcome to the Machine...

"...Where have you been? It's alright we know where you've been.
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time, Provided with toys and 'Scouting for Boys'.
You brought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn't like school, and you know you're nobody's fool, So welcome to the machine. Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream? It's alright we told you what to dream..."

I am not a journalist. I don't pretend to be. On occasion though, I find a story that needs to be told to everyone. Information that is important enough for me to stop the sarcasm. That last entry, The Burden of Proof, was not one of those times. That was just repetition for truth's sake.
This however is
As was reported yesterday in Undernews Bush has one heck of a nice Enemies list.UNDERNEWS: BUSH HAS LARGEST ENEMIES LIST EVER.
You may remember Nixon's infamous list. This one is nothing like that. Nixon did not have a FBI transformed into a Gestapo style secret Police
The Bush administration has used the full scope and authority of the Patriot Act to compile information on anyone they view to be a political threat to them. Currently 65% of the country disapproves of this administration. Does that make the majority a threat? "But I have nothing to fear. I am not a criminal or a terrorist." I doubt there is a single citizen of this country who could stand up to there entire sexual history being on display for the public. That means every detail from youthful experimentation to every downloaded adult file. And anyone who has ever gone to an adult site, all of you, know that your browser history has not only your dirty little choices, but also all the freaky pop up stuff you did not ask for. You see that is the power behind this political blackmail database. I am sure you've noticed that there is no free press in this country, anymore, outside of a few independents. It didn't make sense to me up until now. Plame gate, NYT, WaPo, the Lies of WMD, Katrina Apologists, ad infinitum the Fourth Estate has had a lip lock on the White House Colon, and I don't mean Powell. So, why has the press been so reluctant to take there lips off the President's ass?
Job loss? No, getting fired for breaking a huge story is a one way ticket to the top of the bestseller chart. Grisham money in sales would not deter an objective press. Public humiliation would though. Rove and Libby with all the Power of the Federal bureau of Investigation, digging up your most embarrassing moments... Everyone has a price. That'd shut anyone up.
So, to be absolutely clear here, The US Government has used the authority given to them in a time of National Crisis, with the understanding that it was to be used solely for the defense of this nation, to compile a database of information about thousands of US Citizens for the sole purpose of Black Mailing those people into doing what this administration wants them to do. The Power given to Bush to protect America has been used to further his own political agenda to the detriment of our Security, liberty, and democracy. Four years and billions of dollars after 911, Bin Laden is still somewhere in Afghanistan. Iraq has become exactly the threat Bush made us believe it was under Saddam. Oil Companies are showing record profit while oil prices are at an all time high. New Orleans is gone. The middle class is hanging on by a string. The Reputation of our Nation is somewhere between Mussolini and Pol Pot. Our Military readiness is nonexistent, squandered on a pack of lies. Thousand of American soldiers are dead, tens of thousands are broken physically and psychologically. And not a single major network newsperson has told you any of this because they are afraid that you might find out that their sex life is just as kinky and embarrassing as yours.
I can't wait to see my file.

Please forward this entry to everyone you can. The MSM will not report the News today or any other day. They just do advertising anymore.

It's not reasonable to argue with the potential of this concern, but, there are some that are speaking out, thus dispelling or undermining the urgency and/or legitimacy of the threat as described.

X wonders what's in his file, but, it would seem that he wouldn't be able to access the internet let alone send the content of his alert if the concern he raised was at the level his rhetoric projects.

I'm not saying X's voice won't be lost at some point, but, since his voice is still out there, along with others, how can this threat be as credible as presented.

I think the concern is completely valid, but, over-reaching rhetoric won't garner support from some simply because of the rhetoric itself (i.e., shooting one's self in the foot).

my 2 cents, anyway

So, as long as I can voice a concern there is no need for it, and when it will be needed it will be too late? Interesting. I think I am going to be a bit more proactive than total surrender regardless.
