Quoting myself

It sucks being right.
I said sometime ago on this blog that this is a government that makes lists of enemies; lists and files containing whatever damaging or private information might be useful to them. At this point it would not surprise me in the least to find out that some minister's office is data mining bloggers, activists, veterans, or anyone else who has made a disparaging comment about them or stood in a line against them. It wouldn't surprise me at all to find out that some public money went to hiring "contractors" to spy on political enemies, either in office or private citizens, and gather information on their personal lives.

Dave, Alison, Dawg, RossK.

Bloody hell.

y'know when Nixon's enemies list was finally published there were a whole lotta people upset because they were not on it. I don't want to be one of those people.
