    "I Support an Orwellian Police State in America" - How About You?

    While the following is intended by its author to be satirical cranking on the blithering idiots who willingly give their names and (at least) birth-dates to a total stranger spewing gibberish, it demonstrates how far devolved the collective American psyche has descended into absolute sheepledom. How many times per day do we see right here on this forum support expressed for ever-expanding police powers, including, but certainly not limited to, harassment for OC, or submission to cops by spontaneously disclosing the contents of your waistband and on and on and on?

    For those of you who subscribe to the notion that all-encompassing police powers is the right way to rule a "free" country, here's what you can do about it - circulate a petition! From the looks of it, you'll have plenty of support!

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Love how he has a hard time keeping a straight face at times.

    This guy is hilarious, but what he shows us is just how ignorant and oblivious the general public is in this country.

    "In the real world, security surrounds us, from security cameras to police…"

    Am I the only one who doesn't find this comforting?



    "The aspect of our politics has wonderfully changed since you left us. In place of that noble love of liberty and republican government which carried us triumphantly thro' the war, an Anglican, monarchical and aristocratical party has sprung up, whose avowed object is to draw over us the substance as they have already done the forms of the British government. The main body of our citizens however remain true to their republican principles, the whole landed interest is with them, and so is a great mass of talents. Against us are the Executive, the Judiciary, two out of three branches of the legislature, all of the officers of the government, all who want to be officers, all timid men who prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty, British merchants and Americans trading on British capitals, speculators and holders in the banks and public funds a contrivance invented for the purposes of corruption and for assimilating us in all things, to the rotten as well as the sound parts of the British model. It would give you a fever were I to name to you the apostates who have gone over to these heresies, men who were Samsons in the field and Solomons in the council, but who have had their heads shorn by the harlot England. In short we are likely to preserve the liberty we have obtained only by unremitting labors and perils. But we shall preserve them, and our mass of weight and wealth on the good side is so great as to leave no danger that force will ever be attempted against us. We have only to awake and snap the Lilliputian cords with which they have been entangling us during the first sleep which succeeded our labors," Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Philip Mazzei
    Does this description sound in any way familiar? Give me less "security" and more liberty!

    The fun part is, it was George Orwell who said this:

    “That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there.”

    I don't care as much about making you more "tactical" as I do about making you better able to be the one still standing after the fight is over.

    Sadly, people will sign a petition to do pretty much anything... Ban hydrogen dioxide, add birth control to public water supply, and they strongly prefer the Affordable Care Act to Obamacare.

    I noticed this little piece of subliminal propaganda when I first saw it as well. Amazing how we're being indoctrinated - almost as much as we're be surveilled.

    Regarding the AMEX ad - has a security camera ever actually provided security? Ever saved anyone from harm?
