I just had to jump in here. What the hell does that even mean? What high hoarse? I can't even see what you are trying to imply by that statement.
Why muck up a perfectly fine conversation with nonsense like this?

At this point the waters have been mudded sufficient enough that, like the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, the real perpetrators will never be found.

Well its not quite this bad,, in America,, I dont think
"Spreading rumors online will face prison terms in China"
China users to face jail sentence over online rumors
Summary: Internet users who share false information that are defamatory or affect national interest will face up to three years in prison, but those who help expose corruption online will not face charges, in a move to curb online rumors.

No, we get FBI or swat team visits to our homes if we are for example, suspected of being "too constitutional" minded.
if we are in the armed forces or other public service type employment and happen to voice our personal opinions openly that happen to be against public policy or our president, we get sent to mental health asylums for "treatment" or lose our jobs. THAT doesnt happen here?
How about just taking survival courses and mostly dealing with cash, that doesnt get you a special place on all sorts of lists from no fly lists, to more invasive lists like "potential domestic terrorist" watch lists?
So you are denying the last 10 years in which the American public has been targeted by our government for simply being of a certain political ideology or mindset?
The IRS wasnt sent like hound dogs after the current opposition to the mentality in DC for which they admitted to and apologized?
Young People on the west coast werent targeted by the FBI for just dressing in all black and then being accused of being "may day" supporters who vandalized a federal building...all on the basis of what political literature was in their homes?
I mean I could write an endless list of outright WRONG and ILLEGAL things this administration and that of its predecessor have engaged in to limit, silence, and intimidate their public opposition during the last 10 years....but that is retarded. You were here. You know. I know you know. SO
Please. Its not like we are tortured and killed. No. We are just either RUINED financially or black listed for every process in life like boarding a plane, sent to mental health clinics for "treatment" because we disagree with the direction our country is taking, or have our children taken from us to live under the state´s custody, or other such crap violation of everything decent.
I would say its the same crap. Smells like it, looks like it, and guess what...it is it.
