More From the Fascists.....
Probably nothing to get too worked up about, right? Its probably for our own good, after all, these fascists know what is 'good for us'. Heck, if you aren't doing anything 'wrong,' you have nothing to fear, right? Or maybe you're thinking it could never happen here. We are, after all, a freedom loving country, right? We have the American flag and baseball and, well, we are the best in the world, right? No way we'd pass a law requiring each of us to turn into a "snitch" against our fellow man, right?
How could an American senator even propose this type of legislation? It just seems unfathomable.
"If you "witness" certain drug offenses taking place or "learn" that they took place you would have to report the offense to law enforcement within 24 hours and provide "full assistance" in the investigation, apprehension, and prosecution of the people involved. Failure to do so would be a crime punishable by a mandatory two year prison sentence."This a-hole, good-for-nothing, fascist congressman from Wisconsin, James Sensenbrenner, is the same man who cut off the microphone in the middle of a congressional hearing because he didn't like what he was hearing (without motion on the floor!)...he has the balls to title the bill as the "Defending America's Most Vulnerable: Safe Access to Drug Treatment and Child Protection Act of 2005"! How Orwellian is that?
Perhaps a better title would have been: "Policing Our Citizen's: The Volks Sturmabteilung Act of 2005"
So if you're keeping score at home. Cruel and unusual punishment (aka torture) is now just dandy. Arresting people and detaining them for years without formal charges being filed against them and refusing them their consitutional right to counsel is also okay. The government can now make searches and seizures without ever letting you know that they have done so. Flag burning may soon be a federal crime. Your library records may be retrieved by the government. Compelled citizen snitching....coming soon?
Yeah, the terrorists sure are scary, aren't they?
