19 April 2009: Even as average Americans were planning to get out in towns and cities to demonstrate against Big Government and Big Taxes, Federal Bureau of Intelligence Investigation (FBI) surveillance was being unleashed upon them. In fact, unsuspecting Tax Day TEA Party participants were being closely watched during the demonstration planning stages in a covert operation that began on or about March 23, 2009.
If you one of the estimated 750,000 Americans who attended one of about 600 TEA parties last week, you might have seen media cameras covering the event. Media cameras, however, were not the only cameras taking video at these events, something that has at least one current FBI agent concerned over the future of America. According to this agent – the same agent who provided the Northeast Intelligence Network (NEIN) exclusively the unreleased photographs of the 11 missing Egyptian students who were the subject of a FBI BOLO in August 2006--placed his concerns for true patriots of the U.S. over his own career when he confided that covert surveillance was “planned and performed” at each of the TEA parties that took place last Tuesday.
“Listen to what I am saying,” stated the source during an interview with Doug Hagmann, founder (NEIN). “The Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Assessment that is receiving so much attention is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and the true patriotic citizens of this country are on the Titanic. This is what bothers me. But is goes far beyond that assessment. There have been very significant changes made over the last few years that redirect the focus and assets of the intelligence community internally. These changes have greatly accelerated under this administration, and the threats have been redefined to include those who used to be patriots. It’s not only chilling but absolutely insulting to God-fearing Americans.”
We should have had an actual tea party when that damn patriot act was allowed to go through, we should have screamed to the high heavens. We should have demanded the Bush be charged with treason the minute he said that the constitution was nothing more than a damned piece of paper.

There is no freedom of speech anymore. Or maybe...there is simply no freedom. They don't even pretend to listen to the people anymore...they don't even pretend to follow the law, or the constitution. It is time to either leave or revolt and I don't believe Americans have to stomach for revolt. We all have gotten so weak...so flacid...so...so dead. Maybe this once great country has finally run its course.
Ever since "WE" the people, changed to "I" the person, America has been going downhill. Communities are so splattered with people who don't share the same beliefs, morals, rules, etc. that "WE" can't even co-exist. In today's world, a "Representative" simply can't represent because each community isn't a community...it is a bunch of "I"s...all with different opinions. We were meant to live in Kingdoms, with others who share the same beliefs. Then we could be represented. And each Kingdom could have what they want...live like they want...marry who they want...etc. And if you didn't like the ideals of the community...move to another. But not when a community isn't a community.
We (like all other animals of the planet) were meant to live in groups with like ideals. Not in groups who can't even get along with each other...let alone share goals, ideals and morals.
Sorry for the rant...just longing for the good old days.
