LOL,You're all under arrest. This is a sting operation. If you came here then you are guilty of THINKING that you should be arrested. Now we oblige you... look behind you.

HA! That was good. My first thought was "Great, why can't I get this lucky at Mega Millions." Then of course, I figured it out about two seconds later."

Well-played. Not sure if anyone here can top that.

This is quite something. Apparently the government has decided it has had enough and is initiating a probe against "conspiracy website postings" and the people who make them. We’ve all been put on notice, it seems.

The justification seems to be a little-known clause buried deep within the Patriot Act. (Remember how the congress passed that in a hurry without reading the whole thing?)

Much as they have been picking various people who have been downloading off torrents to make examples out of, it seems they have decided to go after specific “conspiracy” posters. Fifteen of them, to be exact.

The thing that made my jaw drop is that an ATS member is among the posters named! I decided I am not going to name the member directly in this post because the situation is still delicate and I want to protect them from any web-bots that might be crawling this site, but I will link to their profile, here:

The ATS member named in the probe

This is a game-changer for sure.

You can read more about it, here:

(WASHINGTON) Citing an obscure clause in the Patriot Act, officials today announced the initiation of a probe against fifteen members of different Internet message boards and social networks aimed at “exposing and halting those who perpetrate controversial conspiracy website postings." Calling the move “an outrage” and “a direct frontal assault on free speech,” an ACLU spokesperson claimed the organization was willing to come to the assistance of all the individuals targeted in the probe.

A DHS press release defended the move, stating: “The outrageous fear-mongering that characterizes much of Internet discourse today has got to stop. By making examples of some of the most egregious cases, we are drawing a line in the sand.”

OMG!!! My heart jumped, also because most of my comments on my profile page ARE a bit anti-gov and pro-constitution. But then I remembered my website-which I have not posted on in a while. There is no doubt I am on some list somewhere of the undesirable ones - according to our totally corrupt & unConstitutional government!!

Glad it was a joke......BUT. Is it really???

Star & Flag!!!

That was super funny! I gasped for a second and then said out loud "this has to be a joke". That is when my husband said it was April Fool's. Good joke!

I felt my blood pressure go right through the roof, my brain went into hyper mode trying to recall over a thousand posts and which one caused them to focus on me...

Fantastic joke,
Laughing really hard right now but I sure was very very quiet just a few minutes ago.

Good to see that somebody is keeping up the old traditions.
This is the thread that really sorts out the old hands from the newbies.
