And just in the nick of time - Operation TIPS, the federal project that would enlist 1 in 24 Americans to spy on the other 23, has been triumphantly smacked down by the House Majority Leader. Thank god there's someone up there who hasn't forgotten why we became Americans in the first place.

Ok, if you're still not shaken by the recent radical reduction of our freedom, here's some more grisly news for ya: in the name of protecting us from cyber-terrorism, the House just overwhelmingly passed computer crime bill that calls for life sentences for 'hackers' - that's right, you can now spend the rest of your life in a cell for maliciously hacking websites.

Feeling nice and complacent with your inalienable rights? As is so often the case these days, the War On Terrorism/Drugs/Freedom once again justifies trampling all over your civil liberties with the introduction of the Citizen Corps.
The government's goal for the first wave of recruitment is 1 out of every 24 Americans: specifically, people who have access to the inside of other people's homes... like cable installers, postmen, telephone repairmen, etc etc. Their function in the Corps? To report suspicious activity so it can be databased and fed to law enforcement, who can act upon that data without warrants, consent, or even your knowledge - thanks to the Patriot Act.
If you'd like to sign up and be the neighborhood mole, here's the application, on a secure server and everything, since your privacy is such a prized commodity. Remember, we're at war with Eurasia, and have always been. Questioning authority is a thoughtcrime!

Face it, you've always suspected there was something big going on underneath the radar of Joe Everyman, that everything happened according to some secret plan. Now it's all confirmed, and easily explained with this simple flowchart. Sleep well, America!

HOLY JESUS FUCK: You thought the DMCA was bad? Enter the SSSCA, a bill facing legislation that will, among other things, make it a criminal offense for you to: build your own computer, use your non-compliant computer on any network, or use/develop open-source software. Stop this insanity in its tracks, NOW, by signing this online petition, and by snail-mailing your congressmen and senators. Who's behind this aberration of rights? The MPAA, Disney, and their lapdog Senator Ernest "Fritz" Hollings.
