Surveillance in America…it’s Really Bad

Hey America, wake up. We are so smug about America being the land of freedom. Well, we’re not even close…in fact we are at the bottom of the barrel

See this site: http://www.privacyinternational.org/article.shtml?cmd%5B347%5D=x-347-559597

  1. Border Issues
  1. Communications intercepted
  2. Financial Surveillance
  3. Legal protections withdrawn
  4. Medical surveillance
  5. Movement Surveillance
  6. Privacy gone
  7. Use of biometrics in Federally required ID cards

The list above are the points where we at the bottom of the heap. America has been downgraded from “Extensive Surveillance Society” to “Endemic Surveillance Society,” according to Privacy International’s 2007 International Privacy Ranking released on (12-28-07) last Friday. We are right in there with communist China, Malaysia, Myanmar, Russia, and Singapore. Greece, India, The Philippines, Canada, and Romania, rate much better then the ‘US of A’ in freedoms.

I wonder if this has anything to do with Bush’s illegal contravention of 5 of the 10 freedoms guaranteed in the Bill of Rights in our constitution? Dispensing with Habeas Corpus perhaps? Allowing total surveillance on ALL American citizens maybe. Perhaps it’s Bush’s changing laws by himself, his declaring himself ‘Commander in Chief ‘ and the whole world is his battlefield. Of course there are no human rights on the battlefield. Maybe it’s his telling his Storm Troopers that we have the inherent right (as the strongest power in the world) to go into any country and kidnap anyone we want for any reason.

And yes, we are talking REAL kidnapping here. Bag over the head at night, whisking away to waiting transportation, and flying out of the country. No interface with the locals or the countries leaders. We are Supreme.

Do we want to be associated with this as a nation? We already have the reputation as ‘The Ugly American.”

Goodwill to all.

Big Brother really is Watching
