So, are there camera feeds to the FBI in all coffee shops that cater to college students and leftists, or does the FBI hire one of the staff to keep an eye on things? When is enough, enough?

neat. we're living in paranoia and fear. and some idiot thought enough of a dissenting article to inform the FBI. thank god we don't live in a police state. :rolleyes:

this reminds me of, during bush I's administration, DEA agent descending on a frank's nursery and crafts to demand purchase records. "they ain't growing tomatoes," one agent said, regarding someone's purchase of a hydroponics set.

the l.a. time's political cartoonist micheal ramirez was visited by the secret service yesterday regarding one of his cartoons.

the funny thing is, he's just slightly less pro bush than rush limbaugh and the cartoon was pro bush. it did show bush with a gun to his head( the gun was labelled " politics") and it was a knock-off of the famous photo from the vietnam era.

hope micheal can now see that supporting this administration isn't enough...you gotta do it in the right way...hmmm, that rings a bell of some historical similarity.

just wait for the forums to be monitored...
