It really is crazy, how willing we are to let the government criminalize anything they want. Like the new legislation “to protect our kids” Obama talked about during the SOTU. Via WhoWhatWhy.org: In fact, the new cybersecurity legislation would further criminalize the kind of activity for which Brown is due to be sentenced in Dallas […]

We are all outlaws in the eyes of America. — “We Can Be Together,” Jefferson Airplane Think about this: they’re willing for anyone who opposed them to die. That’s America?
