How do you know?
I live 24/7 with electroinic mind control monitoring, cannot do anything in private. SO how do you know your living your life in private.
I stumbled over there is no freedom in 1992 at school in london, so how do you know what they are doing in america?
I bet you cannot fart in america without them knowing.

You haven't noticed?
Compare Now with 20 years ago.
Do you see a difference?
Those little things have a way of creeping up an inch at a time.
Yes, I see that 20 years ago people were screaming that Martial Law was coming, the government was practicing Eugenics and poisoning us all. I heard it all 20 years ago. I heard it 10 years ago. I am still hearing it today. None of that has ever happened so that would be what I mean by "never comes." This grand plan of theirs has not progressed one bit in those 20 years you speak of. It has not changed either. Yawn.
Napolitano was asked by reporters whether Muslim women wearing hijabs would be subjected to the new full body scans and pat downs before boarding planes.
‘Big Sis’ was noncommittal at the time and indicated that the TSA would be making “adjustments” and that there would be “more to come” on the issue.
Now it seems that Homeland Security is genuinely considering giving Muslim women a pass when it comes to the new measures. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) complained to the government that intrusive full-body scans and pat downs were contrary to their religious sensibilities and Muslim women should not be subjected to these new measures. The Muslim organization is asking the government to allow Muslim women to pat themselves down as an alternative.
Meanwhile CAIR is advising Muslim women wearing religious head covers known as hijabs to reject full-body checks before boarding planes and to demand to see supervisors if required by TSA agents to comply.
Response: You have got to be kidding! This is taking ‘political correctness’ about as far as it can go.
All Americans are now being subjected to intrusive inspections before boarding planes because some radical Muslims crashed planes on 9/11. But now Muslim women should get a pass while everyone must go through it all? This makes no sense. Plus it is down right discrimination against women of other religions or no religion at all.
If this happens, then all al Qaeda will need to do is recruit Muslim women wearing hijabs in the future. In fact they are already using young women as suicide bombers in Iraq and Palestine
So, I wonder and have to ask. If its all in the name of security then why the focus on transportation alone? Especially since there are so many other prime targets available that, if hit, would be far more devastating than a plane crash or a blown up bus. How much easier would it be to to sneak a bomb into a baseball or football stadium or a NASCAR event? Can you imagine how much damage an RV packed with explosives could do while parked in the middle of 100k+ NASCAR fans? If these scary Al Quaeda guys were so prolific in this country, why hasnt something like this happened? If they were so dedicated to cause death and economic devastation, then why bother trying to get a bomb on a plane, when they could just blow themselves up in a crowded airport, BEFORE they approach the security checkpoints. This would still have the same effect, multiple deaths and shutting down the airline industry.
