another week closer to the eschaton…

Next Up: Enemy Expatriation Act; Would Strip Americans of Citizenship For "Hostilities Against the United States"

When they took the fourth amendment,
    I was quiet because I didn’t deal drugs.
When they took the sixth amendment,
    I was quiet because I was innocent.
When they took the second amendment,
    I was quiet because I didn’t own a gun.
Now they’ve taken the first amendment,
    and I can say nothing about it.

… but that will not stop me from saying stuff about it anyway! 😛

This Is a Test… (And Too Many Americans Are Failing) – if the united states is to be turned into a plutocracy, our collective ignorance is an absolute necessity.

Oakland Police Violate Their Own Policies and She Dialed 911. The Cop Who Came to Help, Raped Her. and Federal judge gives an Arkansas car passenger $1 after he was tasered by cops, even though he committed no crime and Two brave policemen shoot 43-year-old woman in the back with tasers – who needs foreign terrorists? we’ve got home grown police officers terrorists right down here…

How Much Do Music and Movie Piracy Really Hurt the U.S. Economy? – if you said “between $200 and $250 billion per year, and is responsible for the loss of 750,000 american jobs”, you’d be wrong. those numbers are made up out of thin air by people who do not have the “us economy” in mind.

Could magic mushrooms help the fight against depression? – as nice as this sounds, there’s going to have to be some substantial changes in federal law before it gains any ground at all… 😐
