new world order • The Division of Homeland Security . . . anyone else get creeped out at the use of the word ‘homeland’ i keep hearing edelwiess in the back of my head . . . not only pays attention to what you are reading at the airport but they retain that information – just because they can.
U.S. Airport Screeners Are Watching What You Read International travelers concerned about being labeled a terrorist or drug runner by secret Homeland Security algorithms may want to be careful what books they read on the plane. Newly revealed records show the government is storing such information for years. . . .
DHS responds by saying that Homeland Security Not Interested in Your Books – unless of course what you are reading is considered ‘suspicious’ – and that they can retain this information cause Congress says they can.
Coupled with the airport arrest at gunpoint of a geeky MIT student just because she was wearing a shirt they didn’t understand, (clothing with electronics embedded in them are a NEW geek trend which has lead to some recent useful inventions) this leads me to believe that regardless of which ass occupies the White House come ’09, we are all permanently screwed.
Who gets to say what you can read and what you can wear? What is suspicious to you? to them? We have become sheep and deserving of what happens next.
