    I teach in a graduate program where I have openly criticized Bush policies . . .

    I traveled to India, to Dharamsala with a cross cultural program to volunteer.  I bough Kashmiri shawls.

    I came home and got a spate of odd e-mails from other nations that were spam, to which I did not respond.

    I have written to congress people, had political discussions with friends in my home and over the phone.

    So if they collected information on me, they could fabricate a case on nearly NO evidence labeling me as an enemy combatant, painting the facts in a public way, suspend habeus corpus and detain and punish me without trial based on illegal surveillance and public release of thin "facts".

    They can also get credit card, library loan records and track my gps, or my travel on highways due to speedpasses.

    Get me more tinfoil.  Odd how Alcoa's stock has gone down given this climate.

    Yup, fascism.  These people are traitors to every principle of our nation, and do not love our country.

    What is more concerning is that Big Oil; specifically the huge Exxon/Mobil Corp may save this information for the coming oil wars.  Bush and Cheney work for them, not for us and I worry that their corporate interests in obtaining this information are lurking in every last one of these policies.

    I love our new President.  But there are corporations that are bigger than our laws or government, and this would be the way for them to maximize all of the stolen resources enabled by Bush/Bush/Cheney.

      everything.  As long as you as an individual and enemy of Bush/Cheney/GOP didn't come up on their radar screen, your stuff has never been looked at.  But it's all still there and could one day be opened.

      What FDR giveth; GWB taketh away.
