Nice.

It's not that this information hasn't been put out in recent times in force by the civil liberties advocates (often geeks), but here is a nice summary of the recent domestic changes to policies being put forth by Ashcroft and the Bush Administration:

Bracing for Bush's War at Home

Yes, they really are that scary. I'd thought the Patriot Act II was a dead issue after being spilled to the press, but it looks like it's not as dead as you might think.

This also leads me to post what I've been thinking of recently:

fed: So, we hear you're a commie pacifist french sympathizer.
me: if that's what you mean by being anti-war, then so be it.
fed: Well, you cheese eating surrender monkey lover, we've decided to arrange for you to live among your own.
fed: But, after the expenses in the war, we couldn't actually afford a ticket to France, so we were going to send you to Montreal.
But Canada has gotten sick of anything to do with Americans and is refusing to accept anyone from us this time, so we thought Mexico might be a nice place instead.
But then we remembered you could just come back over the border, so that was no good.
That's when it occurred to us that we have nice property in the Carribean (no, really, they're not colonies, we don't do that). So, we decided we should send all you dissenters to Puerto Rico where at least you can't do any damage by voting.
