    Nah, they'll find more overt ways to destroy posse comitatus.

    Perhaps we'll need to restart that "are we fascist yet?" thread soon.

    I kinda agreed with him on the whole, we aren't that bad (yet)... but now I'm not so sure. There's no smilie for "I have the chills'. Perhaps that guy from http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/ isn't so paranoid after all.

    I'll settle for "crypto-fascist sluggards".

    Wow, high-tech mercenaries. The Amnesty International supporter in me is frightened, but the sci-fi fan thinks its really cool.

    yeah, i heard amy goodman talk about this at the green fest... frightening for sure. just another fact supporting my belief that we live in a police state more than ever. i hate going downtown in dc anymore because it's all cops everywhere. all those concrete street blockers, etc.. the constant feeling of being looked at suspiciously frustrates the hell out of me.

    yeah, i know, that's the ridiculous thing.

    wait, how do you know i don't? have you been joining pseudo in his stalking missions?!?

    but anyways, yeah, just going to meet my girlfriend by the state dept. pisses me off. i feel like i have to sit and wait a couple blocks away or else the guards will snipe me.

    I kinda agreed with you somewhere in that thread...

    But then, near as I recall, I went off about how we were headed in to that general direction anyway. Ever spiraling downward towards fascism. Guess that doesn't count. :eek:
