Yes, the House of Representatives, that body that most ignorant Americans think represent them, has just overwhelmingly extended the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act for an additional five years.
The politicians claim that this is only to monitor foreign spies and terrorist suspects abroad, (what about the U.S. government terrorists?) and that approval is required before targeting Americans from a secret court.
“House supporters, however, assured Americans that their rights are protected.”
Anyone that believes this claptrap has probably been completely brainwashed, or has previously been lobotomized.
The politicians claim that this is simply for our safety, and that our rights are fully protected. At the same time, cameras are being installed nationwide to watch us, 30,000 drones will be in the skies in the next few years, facial recognition of all of us by government is in the works, illegal checkpoints are set up across the U.S., all our emails, computer use, and phone calls are monitored and data-based, but don’t worry, our rights are being protected this time.
As Colonel William Ludlow said in “Legends of the Fall,”
Screw the government!
