An Interesting Article ...

I just read an interesting article over at the New York Times entitled You Are a Suspect. The article by William Safire is about the Information Awareness Office and its new database that it is trying to pass in to law. The point of this database would be to track EVERYTHING an American citizen does. The person running this office is none other than John Poindexter, famous for a little thing called the Iran-Contra Scandal.

This scares the crap out of me, as I don't see how this could be good. Why make everyone a suspect? It makes no sense to me. I think invasions of people privacy like this is ridiculous. I think it may be time to leave the home of free and head to somewhere where they really understand freedom.
