Here's where I shamelessly beg for patronage. If you like what I'm doing, I dunno, maybe buy me a beer? I need your shares and tweets too! Thanks for reading.

Are You Living in a Constitution Free Zone?

Using data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, the ACLU has determined that nearly 2/3 of the entire US population (197.4 million people) live within 100 miles of the US land and coastal borders. The government is assuming extraordinary powers to stop and search individuals within this zone. This is not just about the border: This "Constitution-Free Zone" includes most of the nation's largest metropolitan areas.

As recently as 2011, the National Security Agency was collecting almost 200 million text messages each day, according to a new story by The Guardian that cites documents from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The texts were used to develop financial and location data, the newspaper says.

The National Security Agency has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of those whom the agency believes are radicalizing others through incendiary speeches, according to a top-secret NSA document. The document, provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, identifies six targets, all Muslims, as “exemplars” of how “personal vulnerabilities” can be learned through electronic surveillance, and then exploited to undermine a target's credibility, reputation and authority.

A secret court order that authorised a massive trawl by the National Security Agency of Americans' email and internet data was published for the first time on Monday night, among a trove of documents that also revealed a judge's concern that the NSA "continuously" and "systematically" violated the limits placed on the program.

14 hour ordeal of repeated anal insertions, multiple abdominal x-rays, multiple forced enema's, being forced to defecate in front of doctors and police officers, even being prepped for surjery then sedated and a colonoscopy performed where a scope with a camera was inserted into Eckert's anus, rectum, colon, and large intestines. All for allegedly not making a complete stop at a stop sign while pulling out of a WalMart parking lot.

An FBI Most Wanted character (played rather dryly by the great James Spader) turns himself in to FBI HQ, wherein he is immediately detained at an apparently secret FBI "blacksite" that they refer to as "The Post Office" in what appears to be a Hypercube cell, strapped to what must be the most ergonomic restraint seat known to man they probably call "The Comfy Chair" one presumes. The FBI then implants an "alpha chip RFID" tracking tag in his shoulder, subcutaneously, then they beat, stab, threaten to kill, and then shoot suspects dead for pulling out heart medication.
