    I really think we could have found a better cause to spend 63.4 Billion dollars on. Welllll…. at least we will know where every one is all the time( BIG BROTHER WILL)….come on ????? I for the life of me can’t think of one GOOD reason for this, other than to spy on and keep the masses controlled. NOT GOOD. Just remember GOD is watching us, we don’t need Uncle Sam too.

      We can be positive our populations won’t be working in any factories so I guess the drones will be circling soup lines and unemployment offices

    First the Patriot Act, then the NDAA, quickly follow by SOPA, and now drones in the skies of America. Wow the powers that be must really think American citizens are quite the threat these days. All we need now is the full enforcement and official recognition of FEMA camps and a little tweaking of the definition of what a terrorist is and we are all set for full lock down.

    Don’t worry too much, though Oboma recognized the strong language and broad implications of the NDAA and still signed it… He has vowed to never enforce the extreme portions of it as long as he is in charge…. Whew. Thank god for the truely reliable word of politicians or we could really be in serious trouble here.

    Move along… Nothing to see here.

  3. A nightmare come true. Could George Orwell have actually traveled into the future? Next up, mandatory travel visas for crossing state lines. This bodes VERY ominous.

      That’s what I used to think. Just one little problem with that. It’s called the U.S. Constitution. The Founding Fathers weren’t doing anything wrong, either… Unless you happen to ask King George III.

      Wrong??? Many people have different ideas of what is wrong and what is right, are you ready to trust in the information gatherers idea of good & bad ??? The laws are changing every day and most of them for the worst. Who knows who will be controlling them. Just look at the articles on this site and not worried ?

      May God be with you

    Amazing to think that We the people elect these congressman to not only waste our money to this extent instead of cutting it and balancing the budget; we are paying them to spy on Us. Wake Up America.

    Alvin, Thank you for this and for so many other news items which are extremely important. The quote from your book, which is truly prophetic, reminds me of this statement by the poet William Blake: “Every honest man is a prophet. He says: if you go on so, the result is so. ” (Im quoting from memory so the quote may not be exact, but I am certain the meaning is, and the words themselves, if not exactly equal, then almost. ) We see too many things which are the consequence of actions of men, of going on in a way that is self-destructive as well as selfish. No wonder, then, that there is a continuing spiral of actions and reactions which are leading us to the abyss.

    • Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
      In the forests of the night,
      What immortal hand or eye
      Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

      In what distant deeps or skies
      Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
      On what wings dare he aspire?
      What the hand dare sieze the fire?

      -Wiliam Blake

      Thanks Blanca. We’re nothing without your support. It’s so appreciated.

      God bless you,
      Alvin

    Quite funny….I’m sure I’ve dreamt of something with that same design when I was a teenager…I even drew the design of it when I woke up. I wasn’t a Christian then tho so it can’t be trusted.

    Rights are really taking a bashing these days and it’s just going to worsen. :(

    Alvin,
    I ran across this article from a rather new news source, I can not verify how true this story is, however; if it is even half true, the US is in poorer conditions than even I thought…. it is a crying shame this country is going to hell in a handbasket, and I think they are trying to take the world with us.
    I wasn’t sure where to post this, but this seemed like the best story for it to go under, you may want to make it it’s own…..
    As always Thank you for what you do for us and stay safe, where ever you call home :)

    Thanks
