WTF?????

A London-to-Washington flight was diverted to Maine on Tuesday when it was discovered passenger Yusuf Islam . formerly known as singer Cat Stevens . was on a government watch list and barred from entering the country, federal officials said.

I thought it was just conspiracy theorists saying that this *could potentially* happen... not that a peace activist and MAJOR MUSIC ARTIST could be diverted right back out of his native country for being on some stupid watch list.

No, really folks, wake up. This isn't a free country anymore, this is fucking facism.

(Yes, this really pisses me off, Cat Stevens was my first favorite singer -- I used to mess up my dad's stereo when I was 2 because I knew that turning knobs around magically made Cat Stevens sing.)
